Opening day. A time-honored tradition mixed with today's technology and innovation. The feel of your favorite camo jacket brings back memories of satisfying hunts past. Your waders still wear last year's mud as a badge of honor.
As you ready for the day, you gather shells, decoys, hot coffee — and your shotgun. Then crouch in a blind with your dog expectant and eager. The thunder of wings above. The hope of the day ahead. Then that one heart-stopping defining moment: the shot, the splash, the retrieve.
