Duck Hunt

I recently went hunting in Maryland to take down some quail and pheasants,2005_03_20_MPL3.jpg which is actually much more fun than it sounds. They give you a shotgun, a guide and a dog. The dog runs out in front of you and points out a bird. You mosey up and kick the bush, the bird flies up and then the 3 of us would fire away. You're about 10 feet away and with a huge frickin' shotgun. Sounds easy doesn't it – well it's embarrassing how many got away. We just flat out suck.

Although it's exactly the same, it's not as easy as the old Duck Hunt game.

Seriously if anyone knows how that works – let me know.
