I hope you have a great hunt. I really wish you the luck you will need to have that Chevy go 1,000 miles without breaking down! :o :lol: :D

The first Chevy that I've owned since 1977
I trusted my Toyota but my wife didn't so a near new pickup that supposedly isn't supposed to have any troubles. It took parts of 3 days to set the decoys.
We killed seven one night
I tweaked my back and wasn't able to walk too well.
Sitting in camp Tim dropped three

Shooting was a little slow
But we had some great hunts and watch the migration. Nearly 1600 decoys out
