Default bad day hunting

So yesterday morning was probably my worst day hunting ever. I had 2 ducks come in shooting range, and after shooting and missing the 1st duck my gun jammed. The 2nd duck came in real low over my blind while i was fixing my jam. Then my call stuck and my decoys floated down stream.

Anybody else had one of those mornings?

I've had a few like that, not just duck hunting. I preferr to call them, memorable days.

A bad day hunting is usually better than a good day doing anything else.

Yall are right. And what i forgot to mention was as i was paddling to the blind i saw a canvasback flying low on the water. That made it all worth it.

Don't sweat it. I missed three birds last weekend that I could have hit with a baseball bat! A bad day huntin is better than a good day in the office!

If someone says that they've never had a day like that they're either lying, or they haven't been duck hunting long.
