Benelli Family Follies
Combine Benelli’s exquisite Super Black Eagle 3 shotguns, a sky full of willing waterfowl, and two excited little girls and you have a day of memories that will stand for a lifetime- Brad Fenson
We were invited on an afternoon waterfowl hunt that would include our two-and-a-half-year-old twin girls. It takes special friends to put up with the energy and excitement of youngsters in a blind, but Ralph and Josh Luedtke, and Terry Willisko, were more than eager. More importantly, our crew embraced the noise, distraction, and constant movement in an environment that usually requires quiet and still participants. Uncle Dave Fenson was also along for the foray, making it a memorable trip for the family.
Six dozen full-bodied darks, two dozen Final Approach silhouettes, and a dozen duck decoys were strategically placed. Two stand-up blinds were set up end to end, creating the perfect runway for the girls to run back and forth and stay concealed. Addy and Maya wanted to take part in every aspect of the hunt. They placed willows on the blind, put decoys on stakes, and set up the full-bodied duck decoys without help.
