Sorry it took me a while to respond.
I have medical issues that will probably keep me from hunting this year for the first time since I'm a teenager back i the 60's. And no, I can spell, after all I went to college when they actually would teach. You see, when you get older, your abilities will suffer a little; like sight without reading glasses. The things you gain with age are special attributes. Such things are respect for a fellow hunter, respect for the game you hunt, appreciation of long time hunting buddies, and most of all the great memories of being able to enjoy the outdoors. A great experience can be destroyed by some yahoo skybusting birds because they don't know which end of a call to blow. But it's not his fault; the ducks are pouring into my spot because it's the location drawing 'em in. At least that's how mister 'don't know how to hunt sees it'. And no I don't even hunt Catahoula. I have been hunting public since the 60's. I've seen my share of yahoos, and know of what I speak. They come and go, but I persevere. I too have had blinds burnt and destroyed. My greatest joy comes from wacking my share right next to a blind floating hundreds of blocks compared to my measly 8 dozen. It's more often what's on your lips and knowing when to call that's the difference. I always took pride in getting them in my face to offer the best chance for me and my podnas to make clean kills. Public hunting tries one's patience; especially when someone next to you skybust birds they can't decoy so you don't have a chance on them. It's things like this I'm talking about. Never mind, there still might be hope for you; wisdom comes with age. I leave wishing you hot barrels and birds on de water. Later 'dude'.
