Opening morning October 8th 2016. Geese were tough to finish today but we ended up with a limit regardless of there stubbornness. I called in a single and he lit outside the decoys. So I decided to walk towards him and get him when he jumped up. Well apparently he was a bit more alert than I thought, because as soon as I stood and took a couple steps, he decided to fly. I took a hail mary at what turned out to be 62 paces and dumped him like a point blank shot! I was chuckling to myself about the long shot when I was walking up to it. I took the top of his head, clean off. I was admiring my shot so much, I never leg checked him. I got back to the blinds and was showing my buddy Shooter, so I rolled my hand over to show him the "lucky" shot and what to my surprise bling on his left leg! I just retired my lanyard which has my life long collection of bands this year and locked it in my gun safe. So i'm hunting with a bare lanyard, not anymore. This band looks sort of lonely hanging by its self. Shoot more bling!
