An unfortunate incident occurred while we were out on the water this past weekend. We inadvertently interrupted a duck hunt. I guess the hunters thought that they had a right to hunt near the public boat launch where we put in. They were not about to stop hunting just because a couple of paddlers were near 'their' shore. We came across one wounded duck that had it's wing shot up and was drifting away in the current. Obviously this one got away from the hunters who should at least have had a boat to retrieve their prey. We couldn't have done anything for the bird but leave the scene rather quickly after more shots were fired.
