    The string of pot holes running diagonally across North Dakota have produced the finest duck hunting I have ever seen - and Coastal Maine is no slouch as a venue.  I remember waves and waves of birds, sometimes as many as 100,000 over us in a morning, north and a little west of Minot.  Sometimes they were not in season, like the time we lay back and watched tens of thousands of sandhill cranes fly over.  

    Shortly after we hunted with the falcon, my friend moved to Oklahoma, because he said the falcon seasons were longer and his passion for the sport could expand.  I knew him from some all nighters on the beach fishing for striped bass and asked whether he would miss that.  Guys who do that on weekdays and work the next day are pretty hard core.  He said there wasn't going to be time for fishing.  "A life ruined by sport" has been used to describe me, but I am not even in that guy's league.
