Yesterday I helped set up decoys for an hour, then lay in a field staring at empty skies from 7:00 a.m. until the ducks and geese flew at precisely 2:50 p.m. Yes, it was a very long wait.* But, there were three of us, and while time passed at a glacial pace, it passed pleasantly. We could talk, get up and rearrange decoys, and improve the camo on our blinds. Even hunting by myself, I can watch the sky for fairly long time.
