Prairie Pleasure

by Michael Pearce ( The Retriever Journal )

It had been love at first sight, even before I could see the marsh around me, Mike Moody, Gordy Krahn, and I were loaded up with ammo and decoys as we paused near the edge of the wetland on the South Dakota prairie.  Leaving the shoreline, we waded single file toward the spot Moody had in mind.

       It was about 100 yards into the trek through the flooded grass that we heard it- the unmistakable sound of flushing wings.  The noise was loud even against a stiff prairie wind.  But what sticks in my mind is the duration of the din.  Rather that up and gone in a few seconds, ducks lifted off for a full minute or more. But I only thought I was impressed until Moody said “Look up.”
