Ed Johnson, while hunting ducks on
the Kelley lake a week ago, had quite
an experience. Standing up in the
boat to shoot at some ducks the gun
kicked him out into the water. The
lake is muddy and he kept going
down deeper until he managed to get
one oar and to wrap his coat around
it. He stood on this with the water up
around his shoulders for about an
hour. The boat had tipped over and
in getting it up again he got it nearly
full of water. Taking his hat, he
dipped the water out of the boat, when
he was able to get into it and paddled
his way to land with his gun stock.
Ed says he doesn't want another wet
experience like this one.
