I am pleased to report that bagging the trophy you have wanted forever is every bit as sweet as you hope it will be. At least it was for me this season when I collected this prize: a perfectly shot goose band. I have wanted one for a long time. Why? Well, just because, and maybe also because when I was 11, before I even knew what a waterfowl band was, I saw "Support Your Local Sheriff" a western comedy starring James Garner. In it, Garner takes the job as sheriff of a rough western town. The mayor (Harry Morgan) gives him the previous sheriff's badge, which has a large bullet dent in it.
Garner takes the badge and says: "That must have saved the life of the man that was wearing it."
