Dustin Dear persistently prepares the grass that will camouflage the blinds and hunters. Dustin is an extremely dependable worker.
Thanks Dustin!

And the fun continues until the full body goose decoys are put out.

The mentoring goes a field! This time the work is over and it’s time to play (hunt)! David is 59 yrs of age & he still knows how to have a good time with those who help. A Godly life filled with Excitement and Adventure.

My gift to those who helped in grass cutting,
blind clean out and decoy placement. All 9 hunters,
hunting from one blind, harvested 54 ducks (9 limits)
on opening day by 7:40 A.M. An Increible hunt!
My appreciation to those who participated in the work.

A GIFT to those who contributed time and effort to
David Smith Hunting!
September Teal Season 7 hunters (1 blind)
7 limits of teal (28 ducks)
Duck season ends and the work begins.
The unpleasant task of picking up decoys.

After multiple trips from blind to truck all decoys are picked up and it’s time to go home. A long, long Day! Thanks Scotty Smith and friends for perseverance in picking up vast amounts of decoys in a single day !

Back filling occurs. Summer rains further pack soil around blinds.

A week long process of restoring vivid color detail begins with power washing each of the 1200+ duck decoys.

are buried in levee.

Dirt work is completed in early summer. Summer months allow vegetation to grow and camouflage blind.

Painting each decoy to restore vibrant color is essential in decoy effectiveness.

The painting continues. In the duck world, color is everything.

This is essential to conceal blind and hunters

“Put the decoys out and let’s hunt!”
Why do I work so hard?
“Today almost 40 years later, I see success as a progressive realization
of a worthwhile dream. The dream is the catalyst that provides motivation,
energy and the passion to work long tiring hours.
Choose your future. Develop your self. Follow your dream!”
