Duck Hunting with the Baharie Brothers
October 10, 1998

Mike Raahauge's, known for Pheasant hunting, provided us with some great duck hunting on the season opener here in Southern California. We dropped 8 ducks, loosing one in the fog, and missed another 221. Brent Baharie brought Kelly, a Flat-Coated Retriever we bred and co-own. Brian Baharie secured the blind for us but arrived without a license, so he spotted ducks for Brent and I. As always we had a great time.

The quote of the day came from the game warden Scott. He arrived to check our stamps and shot and got caught there hiding beside our blind because ducks were coming in. After missing 4 ducks he said; "I'd like to help you guys out but, I don't have duck stamps." We dropped the next duck. It was a matter of saving face.
