Man that one had me laughing!
Funny you talk out about pre-dawn activities, and freezing cold temps to get a shot at a bird. On heavy weekends I'm on the road for my 15 mile drive at 3:30 AM to get a good spot in the marsh. We waterfowl hunters are a VERY special breed.
It makes no sense. It's like hog hunting. It's a sickness.
(although I still have not gotten the chance to hunt in a blind - I'm always sitting in reeds or under a tree in knee deep marsh water)
