A perplexing question????

I read and follow a lot of blogs.  I enjoy experiencing stories from all over the country about different hunting or fishing adventures that I do not get to be a part of here in South Georgia.  For example, I have never been on a Rocky Mountain Elk Hunt or Alaskan Moose Hunt.  With that in mind I would like to give a shout out to one of my favorite blogs' "The Downeast Duck Hunter".  The DEDH lives in Maine (which is definitly not "Down East" from where I am from, more like "Up North") and gets to do some pretty neat hunting.  He chases sea ducks with a passion and also does his share of ice fishing.  Here in South Georgia the only kind of fishing that we do in any ice is when we reach in the bottom of the cooler to fish out another beer.  I always feel cold after reading one his his ice fishing stories.  He also fishes for lobster and is starting to get into a inland duck hunting groove.  Did I mention that he is also training to become a licenced guide for the state of Maine.  If I ever make it up there one day, I'm giving him a call.  Check out his blog if you haven't already!

Now on to my question!  The DEDH seems to stay pretty busy with his work, raising a family, and his hunting adventures.  Can someone please tell me how he has the time to do all of these things, write a great blog, and quarterback the Green Bay Packers?????




I just couldn't help myself! :)

You really should follow his blog even if you are not a Packers fan!!

Happy Hunting DEDH!!!!

So here I sit feeling somewhat compelled to respond to my fellow blogger who has officially become the Rabid Southern Outdoorsman with sharp witty retorts and subtle hints of harassment. All jokes aside man, pretty innovative post and I got quite a tickle out of it. Now for answers to your high level questions...
First, Down East originated way back in the late 1700s during the sailing days. Ships from Boston would catch the prevailing winds from the SW henceforth sailing down wind and east. As a history teacher, that's how down east was formed...
Secondly, in terms of time I have actually reduced my efforts to do all things outdoors. I try to hit the weekends in full force and try to be done sea ducking before the kids even wake up. We refer to this tactic as "Whack and Stack" in order to appease the little ladies. In addition, I've figured out how to make a 26 hour day while others only have the typical 24. When I retire, I'll sell the rights to this and get outdoors even more.
Finally, down the road when everything is established with the guide service and we've got plenty of free time, I'll get you onto the Maine action. I won't disclose the price because I'd have far too business and go broke.
Thanks for the shout out and take care,
DEDH

Good stuff! I'd love to go hunt sea ducks up there. I can swoop by and pick you up on the way from FL!

Thanks for being a good sport DEDH! I think my Aunt Jan (who commented above) actually thinks that you Quarterback the Packers! I am certain that I am not the only person you know to comment on how much you guys look alike!

Oh my, now that is too funny! (and I am looking forward to when DEDH releases the rights to the 26 hour days because I could use more time outdoors too!)

Dude, that's awesome. I would also approve of a name change to "The New Yankee Duck Hunter" or the "Carpetbagger Duck Hunter."

And of course, I'm kidding. In my family's 100+ years in this great country, I'm the first member born in the South.
