Pictured is myself and Fred Bentley (right) looking over our duck harvest in my backyard in Lincoln on the opening day of the early teal season of 1966. We shot these birds from a temporary blind made of weeds from the then filling Salt Valley lake in southeastern Lancaster County now known as Hedgefield. All birds are blue-winged teal. One of them had a leg band that was attached near Yorkton, Saskatchewan, Canada, in Aug. 20, 1964. I sent it to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and they sent back the banding information to me. The empty shells were added in an attempt to give interest to the picture. I was shooting a Winchester Model 12 and Fred used his side-by- side double barrel. I believe it was a Parker. Fred, who died in 1980, was my next-door neighbor and close friend. He was originally from Cleveland, Ohio, and had much experience in waterfowl and upland game hunting in Ohio and surrounding states. He piqued my interest in gamebird hunting, and we had many good hunts in the field and from the blind. – Brick Paulson, Lincoln ▲ From the left is my dad, Art Push, Jr., who is now 89 years old and hunted until he was 86; and my uncles Richard Hamilton, Mike Hamilton, and Bob Hamilton after a successful day of pheasant hunting west of Lincoln circa fall of 1957.
