Outdoor living: The stamp you can’t mail

By JIM FOSTER
Special to the PRESS

It was only a short time ago when I was amongst a spread of full-bodied decoys watching a flight of the large variety Canada geese set their wings and begin floating into my spread.

As I lay in my ground blind watching, the large birds flared, acquired altitude extremely fast, and soon were well out of shotgun range. Looking over my shoulder, I saw the reason the birds had left the area – one of those game warden type people walking in my direction.

After expressing my opinion of his timing and lack of manners, I showed my license. “How about a duck stamp?” was his next question. I produced the “stamp” and was told to have a good day, and with somewhat of a sarcastic grin, he left.
