The Brave Eagle is Heading North!

The flight has been booked and plans have been made.  The schedule calls for hunting, hunting, and more hunting, sprinkled with some good fellowship and a lifetime of memories made.  So where is this Brave Eagle off to this time?  Follow this link to see what I will be getting into this fall!



That's right!  This blogger will be hanging out with the Downeast Duck Hunter, President of Duckpower, Inc.. I will be showing those Northern boys how it's done and pounding sea ducks into the Maine Coastline in early October (I have never actually shot a sea duck, so I'm not sure I can really show them anything, but it has wings and flies so I figure I can handle that).  It is a trip I have always wanted to make.  The state of Maine has always been on my wish list of places I would like to visit.  I think it started in high school with my first pair of LL Bean boots.


Now for those of you who may be wondering if this Southern boy can handle the chilly weather in Maine, don't worry, I'm wondering the same thing!  I have been assured by my guide, Mr. President, that the weather should not be that harsh in early October.  I think I can handle it.  I once survived hunting pheasants in Kansas during a snow storm in late November.  I got this!

Now I know some of you are a bit jealous and I don't blame you, but I'm sure the Duckman and I will do our best to fill you in on all of the details of our hunting adventures in some sure to be epic blog post this fall.  In the mean time, you will just have to read the Duckman's summer lobster stories and my furniture refinishing stories to get you by.  I'm sure you can hardly wait!!

***On a serious note, I am thankful for the people I have met and the opportunities that this little blog has given me.  There is no way I would have ever had the chance to hunt in the great state of Maine without the contacts and friends that I have made along this blogging journey, and I'm not ashamed to admit that I am just as excited about shaking my good friend's hand for the first time as I am about bagging that first sea duck!  Life is made to be experienced, but it is better lived when those experiences are shared with good friends!!***

Get ready Duckman!  I'm bringing the cheese grits and boiled peanuts with me!

YEAH! You're coming to Maine!!! It usually snows somewhere in the State in October, but I am sure DEDH will have you geared up and ready to go. I had a blast ice fishing with him, so I am sure the two of you will have an amazing time while you are here... and if you do stop off at Beans enroute to DEDH, let me know. I live near there and I will treat you to lunch (or dinner, or breakfast etc).

I agree that this Blog thing can lead to some worthwhile meetings.

Okay I'm jealous. Although I'm not much of a duck hunter.. the LLBean shopping sounds fun! I am sure there will be some interesting stories that come from this trip. I look forward to it!
