I know the feeling. I don't duck hunt...would like to start but I barely have time to bow hunt and pheasant hunt as is. Every year though I try to get my brother-n-law to help me get the stands ready but he always has an excuse. I bush hog, disc, buy the seed and fertilizer, put in the seed, put up the stands, put out the cameras and attractants, etc. with no help. Then I come to get in my stand opening weekend and to my suprise...there is my brother-n-laws truck..hmmm, out sitting in my stand. Ohh well. I don't even worry about much anymore...I just try to steer him toward the garr hole and try to keep the good hidey holes to myself. I do have a 10 yr old son that has been a huge help to me this year...I'm sure that will change in a few years when he has better things to do (chase girls) but for now it's great! He killed his first deer at 7 and has been hooked ever since. I also have a 5yr old coming along. When he's a little bigger we'll have a pretty good crew!
