For weeks the weather had been perfectly cool, the migration right on time, and our host Heath Whitmore had even been sending us pictures of mallards and pintails killed just one week before our arrival.Surely God would bless this endeavor with full limits, perfectly framed kill shots and fellowship overflowing from pit blinds. Right?

Why do we get so excited when our friends text us their latests trail cam photos? It’s because they have a chance at an awesome experience. Why do we put so much collective work into putting in duck blinds? So we and our friends can have great hunts together. We’re thinking about the other person’s success. It’s a moment in our lives that we are successful in denying ourselves and placing someone else first.
