Duck hunting on the bay with the Wiegardt boys, Nahcotta, Wa.

I finally got to go out to watch Eric Wiegardt and his dad Dobby duck hunting on Willapa Bay. Tim wrote up a story a couple weeks ago, and the weather just would not cooperate for me to get out there until yesterday morning.

Dobby noted that the deer rack on his garage wall was captured by Ilwaco's first mayor, oh so many years ago.

Unfortunately, these were about as close as the ducks got to us all morning. The guys were also skunked when Tim went out with them. Guess the CO is bad luck for ducks!

Despite not getting a shot off I was totally pleased with how it went, and even got a slice of Mrs. Wiegardt's  marionberry pie afterward. Totally worth getting up at 6 am for!
