            I grew up hunting in Mankato and know the lake you were on. Quite a story! That life jacket is a pain but it may be the verythnig that saves you. Having watched my son go down I know I will always have mine on.

            Ya David it will definatly make me approach the water in a much safer manner!! All I have to say is when your in 36 degree water for over a half hour.....well lets just say guys we know what happens!! haha Have to try and keep my humor through all of this haha!!

                This was one of the scariest times out duck hunting Ive ever had. I was fortunate to have a another boat around to help me out. If they werent just a few 100 feet away Im not sure what would have happened. Thanks Dad!

                  Final Chapter- The Pole Is Recovered

                  Talk about committed!! Rich and Dusty continued to dive and today they recovered the Avery Push Pole that was lost when the boat capsized. Methodical searching paid off! Thanks guys!

                      This summer go jump in a pool or shallow water (with someone there to assist you if needed) and learn how to float with your waders on. It can be done and could save your life.

                      Might also help wash the smelly funk out of your waders from the previous season.
                      i never knew this, i figured if you fell out of a boat with waders you'd be a goner, i'm going to try this to see what happens, thanks.
