The alarm clock goes off but this time its different. It's 2:30 am and you can't wait to get out of bed. You have a big day ahead of you. You have decoys to set up just perfectly which is no easy task, an excited retriever to provide direction to, and if all goes well, ducks and geese to clean. Needless to say, you have a challenging day ahead of you both mentally and physically.
You’ve done your homework and believe you found the perfect location. You arrive and the work begins. You set up your decoys, apply your all natural hunting camo face paint, settle in your ground blind and wait. There's a certain calm to the sunrise, different than the peaceful solitude of the deer stand. The rest is yet to be told.
So how can you best prepare for your waterfowl hunt to get the most out of it?
We recommend using the waterfowl blackout pattern (pictured above). You want to be sure to cover your most highlighted features: your nose and cheekbones. Nature’s Paint ash black works perfect for this. Check out Women’s Outdoor News: Four Ways to Wear Face Paint When Hunting for details on how to apply this pattern.
The day comes to an end. You are exhausted and full of life at the same time. Lessons were learned and memories were made.
When it comes down to it, waterfowl hunting is about the experience. As our friends at Mountain Lodge Outdoors say, “At the end of the day it doesn't really matter if you made the shot or how many dropped. The only thing that matters is that you were all there when it happened.”
