Retired Army Staff Sgt. Mike Hulsey, of San Antonio, Texas, calls ducks Saturday in a duck blind at the Grassy Lake Hunting Club in Ware. Hulsey said his invitation to last year’s hunt had a big impact on him. “At the time I was really depressed,” Husley said, “I didn’t know what I was going to do.”  He said he was planning suicide until the day he was invited to the 2010 Wounded Warrior duck hunt. “I had a loaded shotgun in my mouth and my phone rang,” he said. Husley said the call was his invitation, which he accepted.
