As one grows older, the nostalgia of hunts from years past always seem to hold a special place in a waterfowlers heart. For me, as far back as I can remember, well before I could even carry a firearm there was such a place…..
The area known as Lac Qui Parle always brings back fond childhood memories including the evening orchestra of Canada geese on the lake putting me to bed each night. Although many things in this world continue to change, this area of the world continues to hold true to tradition.
Upon arrival to The Watson Hunting Camp, located in the heart of the Lac Qui Parle refuge in western Minnesota, I now bring my young boys with, to experience growing up in this waterfowler’s paradise each fall.
My good friend of over 20 years now, Chuck Ellingson owner/operator of The Watson Hunting Camp now cherishes the same memories with his boys as I do. Together we are raising our boys the same way we were raised, in the same area of the world as we grew up hunting.
