The not so good old days entailed hurriedly wrapping decoy lines around keels with numb fingers. Sometime later, the consequences of badly tangled lines were suffered during a mad scramble to sort them in poor lighting. Inevitably, swarms of ducks flew like crazy at that exact moment, departing unscathed except for the intemperate profanities expressed by whoever was responsible for untangling the mess.

Spring turkey hunting 101
North Texas eNews
Luke Clayton, a contributor for the North Texas eNews, writes: "With the spring turkey season a few weeks away, it's time to plan our upcoming hunt, time to break out the old box and slate calls and make sure they are in working order. I have a good buddy that has his 'turkey box' that contains all his turkey hunting gear, everything from chalk for his calls to face mask and camo netting for a quick blind. About this time each March, Bob takes great pleasure in sorting through his gear, replacing what needs replacing and adding new items that he thinks might make him a more effective turkey hunter."
