You didn't think Joe & Dick killed all those ducks in the previous picture all by themselves did you?  That would be illegal!  Actually, we had a large group for this hunt including top row left to right Russell, Randy and Paul.  Joe and me on the bottom row.  Dick took the picture.  This picture was taken early in my duck hunting days.  I don't recall the exact year, but it must have been in the late 80's when ducks were more plentiful in our area.  The saltwater intrusion into the marshes near the mouth of the Mississippi River has killed much of the duck habitat in the area where we hunt resulting in fewer ducks taken in the past few years.
