Very nice picture. nice birds and fine looking gentlemen. Mr Riggs you look like a man made of money. And that is a good thing, use poor Canadians just can not keep up, never have never will. Plus every picture you look different, one day I will figure this out.

All taken using Black Cloud 3", #4, over decoys. Didn't have to chase down a single one. :)

Don't let the pictures fool you. In my avitar photo, I was in my mid-thirties...now I'm in my mid-sixties. Made of money...hardly. Both grandfathers worked in the coal mines, and my father worked in a factory. I have a high school education, but, I read everything I can get my hands on. Went into the Air Force after high school, and flew 137 combat missions in SE Asia as an Airborn Radio Direction Finding Specialist. I worked for a couple years in a cast iron factory on the production line. Spent 2 years cleaning floors and toilets , then worked for 12 years installing phones for the local phone company. Spent 22 years selling yellow pages advertising. Got laid off...no severance. Took me two years to find another job selling long distance and internet service...got laid off after 1 1/2 years. I do a little consulting work, and deliver pizzas a couple nights a week...what ever it takes to pay the bills. Also done some guiding in Maine, Wyoming, and Montana. Been on social security the past 2 years. My wife of 37 years works as a nurse over 40 hours a week, and will be retiring next year. Looks can be deceiving, eh?

Better to be a poor man and look rich, than a rich man and look poor. Either way I think I lose. Any way good hunting. I think your life history and hunting experiences would be very interesting to listen to. You have hunted many places and done many things, continue to enjoy your life because life is to short.

Hey, all the best to you too, my friend. By the way, I've never won a modeling contest either. :lmao:

If you are not one with extra bills in your pocket this only goes to show your true dedication to the outdoor sports that we enjoy. I have been in very low places myself. I once went without a pay check for four years. Sorry if I hit a soft spot, I know the feeling.

Way to go Riggs. Are those some Pennsylvania dabblers or did you go on a road trip?
About 18 miles from my home.
