re: Duck boat flipped in the river near Ft. Jackson??? - Tigah D
Just horrible to hear of......wear your f-in PFD headed out to the blind, MS River or otherwise. I can see not wearing in some lil marsh canals that are 2 feet deep from boat house to blind, but outside of that it's just not worth it. Kill cord and life jacket for me; only took one time find...
