                      DUCK HUNTING REPORT

Duck hunting in Paradon, Guatemala is not for the meek. 
We spent 45 minutes in the larger Kayuk you can see on the right. We then transferred to the smaller paddle powered version Kayuk for another 30 minutes traversing mangrove swamps. If you can imagine me at 270 pounds +10 boxes of shotgun shells and my shotgun along with all my possible bag in that little boat with 2 16 year-old guides. To say we were overloaded would be a gross understatement. I think this has to rank as the most unstable watercraft I have ever been in but somehow we made it without getting too wet. We arrived at a group of large Lakes well before sunup. My guides deployed 30 decoys. It turned out the boys not just get you in and out but they also retrieve the ducks. Before even nautical light 15 or 20 blue wing ducks flew in to join my decoys. As a young man I did a lot of dove and duck hunting and armed with my new Browning light 12 and 10 boxes of number sixes I was ready to show my buddies how to shoot. Did I mention I had never hunted blue winged ducks before? It was the fastest most fun shooting I have ever experienced in my life. Blue wings are blistering fast and can change direction in a second as well as being able to see from an incredible distance. I killed 17 shooting five boxes of shells before I passed my shotgun to the boys to let them have some fun. My two buddies each shot 10 boxes with one of them killing 89 birds and the other one killing 106. It was later I found out they told my Guides to only let me shoot the blue wings. I'm sure this was a good idea on their part as there were so many different types of ducks flying around that concentrating on just one made things easier. With my new browning plus a couple of nice Remington 870 pump guns we are now fairly well equipped to go duck hunting. I am so excited about it you can be sure I will be scouting more locations in the future.
