I went out duck hunting today. This morning while setting up my decoy spread I took a step that could have been fatal. I felt myself sinking real fast and my waders were taking on water. I was going under and I was not any were near the bottom of the pond yet. I was wearing a belt and that probably saved me. My belt prevented water completely filling my waders I was able to swim my way up and get to a solid footing. I got out of the water and dried off real quick and got back to spreading my decoys. Turned out to be a blu bird day. The few shots I did take were not succesful. But I made it home. And that is what matters most. All I can figure is I must have steped over an under water canyon, cause I went deep before I new what was going on. Well I lived to hunt another day. ;D Needles to say I am saying that belt saved my life so please don't forget to wear yours when hunting. It could save yours.
