I always wondered what they did out there in the swamp!

I've always wondered what my husband and son did all day out in the swamp when they go duck hunting.
They get up in the wee hours of the night, long before daylight, dress in camo clothing, and load the truck with duck decoys. The dog, currently our black lab Suzy, gets so excited to be going I just wonder: What do they do out there?
They are sometimes gone until almost dark. Sometimes they come home with a duck or two, but often they come home with nothing. Those are the days there are plenty of stories of how they missed or how it just didn't feel right to take the shot. There are
always stories of the beaver they watch, or the deer that comes to drink along the water's edge.
This picture of Suzy now tells me - I'm not the only one to wonder what they do all day out there! I think she's just wondering why she got up to go this morning!!
