Dan has been duck hunting for about 25 years.  He grew up in a hunting family and as a young kid spent his weekends at the trap and skeet fields.  He would set targets for the trap shooters and would also shoot trap when he had free time. Dan spent the weekends during the winter shooting archery at a competitive level in a program called J.O.A.D.  As soon as Spring would break, you could find Dan on the Saginaw Bay fishing for Walleye until mid-July, when it was time to prepare for ready for the upcoming duck season. Mid-August, he would start with the building of the blinds and get the boats and duck hunting things ready.
