I've also always wanted to duck hunt but had too many hobbies. I'm totally green and would love to learn, and I'll do my best to not be a pain in the ass. I'm also not averse to swapping a case of brew in exchange for helping schlep your gear and soaking up your knowledge.
I live in Martinez, 33yrs old. Can leave the dog at home.
I just realized that this looks like some bizzare personal ad, but I don't know how else to get into it without knowing anybody who hunts!
My suggestion... Find some where you and the "teacher" can do a day hunt. I'd suggest a day hunt because it ensures you get out to hunt, yet it does not cost the fortune of a full season membership incase you did not like it (I do not see how that is possible).
I'm 21...been huntin' ducks since I was ~5 years old. I've been calling since I was 10, and have gotton my ass chewed for screwing up--so I do not screw up too much anymore ;)
If I had my own personal blind, I'd tell you to come up and leach off me (not saying I know it all)...but the fact of the matter is I am a guest of the owner =( PM me or IM me if you'd like anything else.
Ohh yea...in Sacramento now hunting the rice fields.
