Last week the forecast for central Missouri was for temperatures in the 70s and very light southern breezes for the next few days -- definitely not the weather you want for a duck hunt. My host, Ira McCauley of MOmarsh, called me as I was pulling out the driveway. “We don’t have very many ducks and we don’t have a lot of water,” Ira said. “This weather doesn’t look very good, either.” I half expected him to tell me to come some other time. Instead he said “We might have to make lemonade out of lemons, but I like these early season hunts because you never know what will happen. I hope you packed some shorts!” That is an attitude that kills ducks, because, you know, you can’t kill them from the couch.
