Otter Creek Duck Hunt
By John Campbell, TV9 Sports
Tama County-Rob Bevins of Belle Plaine can handle a duck call with the best of them He is a past Iowa and Kentucky state champion.
He just returned from his 4th straight appearance at the World Championships where he made it through the second round.
Rob says his calls are usually louder in competition than in the duck blind. Tuesday morning at Otter Creek Marsh he didn't get to do much calling and the reason was simple. No ducks were flying.
Three geese did perform a "flyover" but Rob decided against shooting.
With ice starting to build up in the cattails, Rob figured this might have been his last hunt of the year.
