duck calls In 1972, Phil Robertson created his famous Duck Commander Call, and started his Duck Commander Company in 1973. His product and name have become increasingly famous since his son, Willie Robertson, turned the company from a family business into a multimillion-dollar empire. A duck call may be either the sound-imitation process by which a hunter lures waterfowl, or the actual tool which the person uses to do so. Early duck call tools were basic woodwind instruments, while later innovations are constructed of rubber and plastic, and allow the hunter to adjust the volume and tone of the calls with reeds. Today's duck calls usually fall into three main categories: a single, double, or triple reed call with many variations.

The driver Horwitz explains that the ducks can fly away, but it really it is the fish that Holden should be thinking about.
“In 1958, baseball player, Jackie Jensen peaked as a major-leaguer, winning the American League MVP. His success convinced Jensen to skip his senior year and accept a $40,000 bonus to play for the Oakland Oaks of the Pacific Coast League. ‘Who knows how long he might have gone,’ George I. Martin said, ‘but what matters is how far he went and that he found a life beyond baseball.” (Ebsco). Also, in 1954, 16 year old, Marilyn Bell, swam across Lake Ontario.
He was born into a wealthy family with three siblings, and suffered many illnesses as a child, including asthma.

Theodore had a varied educational career; he was tutored at home as a young boy, graduated from Harvard where “he studied a variety of subjects, including German, natural history, zoology, forensics, and composition” (Milkis).

According to Frank Madden, “William Stafford earned a Ph.D. from Iowa State University, and for many years taught at Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon” (Madden 1164). Safford also wrote a tremendous amount, journaling many of his daily experiences. His first major collection of poems was published when he was forty-eight years old and later received the National Book Award in 1963. “Traveling Through the Dark” is one of Stafford’s most well-known poems because it, like many of his poems, tells an easily comprehensible story with underlying currents of greater meaning.
My Grandpa inspired me to think more about veterans on Veterans Day because of what he has been through and what he did for the family. He was a South Vietnamese soldier during the Vietnam War and worked along with the American soldiers there. After the Vietnam war ended in 1975, things started becoming miserable for people like him in South Vietnam, so he escaped from Vietnam by boat and went to the United States. He left when my Dad, uncle, and aunt were babies. Fifteen years later, he sponsored my grandma, Dad, uncle, and aunt to come and live in the United States with him.
My Uncle Boone was amazed that I hit three birds in three shots something he doesn’t do every often. Buck complimented my impressive wing shooting for my age and little duck and goose hunting experience I had. I offered to go and find the ducks in the field since we didn’t bring any of our hunting dogs along. I scanned the ground to find the ducks that seem to mysteriously disappear once they hit they ground. I found the two drake green heads my uncle shot, my two drake green heads and one hen green head, and bucks one green head before I walked back to the decoy spread.
Introduction While trying to find a topic to research and write about, I attempted to comb my brain in search of my greatest passions. Ideas such as sports, trucks, and politics stood out as potentials, but I quickly discarded the collection in favor of my more hotly burning passion: duck hunting. Ducks dominate my thoughts and dreams in an overwhelming fashion. The pursuit of waterfowl has influenced my life in a myriad of ways, such as impacting my college choices, affecting how I spend my time, and dictating how I budget my money. Even my Christmas gifts revolved around the sport as I received numerous pieces of equipment designed to aid my endeavors chasing the aquatic game birds.
I got 6th place in the tournament and was not happy but I gained experience and never gave up. My father and I drove back to Dallas and were greeted by the rest of my family who were all over the country and some in different countries. My Spring Break was fun because I got to spend five days with my dad and we did what we both love to do. I was upset that I did not win but you can’t always win and you have to learn how to lose and be a good loser.
It was interesting to learn how a family started out of their farm and made it into a big company making duck decoys. Walking over to the Carriagehouse my mind became so overwhelmed with how people live in that era compared to how we live now. Personally,
In 1959 the two namesake state universities in Oregon kicked off their annual “Civil War” game. What do you get when you blend two school mascots - a duck and a beaver? Well, a Platypus of course! The two-foot wide, 18-inch long platypus is carved out of maple wood.

Philip Rhayader, who saved many soldiers at Dunkirk, died at age 37 of being shot in battle. On May 21, Rhayader sailed his little boat to assist in aiding the soldiers stuck on the shores of the English Channel.

Benjamin Rush was born on December 24, 1745 in Byberry, Pennsylvania. This name may have no significance to you but to me it has a lot. When I was in 5th grade, I had to do a project history and I asked my grandparents if they could tell me anything. My grandparents on my father’s side told me how my uncle Mike lived next to Igor Sakorsky, the man who invented the helicopter.
