Posted: Wed Jul 26, 2006 11:43 pm Post subject: Hi there, My Intro. post. (callinfowl)
My name is Dan King I live in Concord CA. I hunt the Ca delta river bottoms. ( public land )
I have been waterfowl hunting for 35 years out of my 42 years of life.
I am a mallard purist. And really enjoy hunting Specks and honks:yes:
I am a competent duck & goose caller thanks to my wonderful father.
Pop's stuck a duck call in my mouth when I was 5 years old ( Faulks) I picked it up fairly easy from there. We hunted 2-3 days a week for most of my childhood ,mainly colusa CA. public and private lands.
I hunt small tule ponds for Mallards and get up to the Sac. Valley when the timing is right for the geese.
I am a union plumber Local # 38
I have a wonderful wife and NO KIDS
I pride myself in my ability to adapt to most waterfowl situations.
I hunt with my best friend (now my bro -inlaw of 4 years) and a close friend.
All three of us really enjoy fooling Mallards into very close shooting range
( under 20 yards is the norm for us.)
We shoot 85% green for a season tally of 300 to 400 birds.
( for the three of us. )
the 05-06 season was a test for us , we had to deal with rain swollen rivers and a broken transom on my 17 foot Gregor ducked out boat.
(we got rear ended on the freeway on the way home from a hunt in Oct.)
We where forced to use a !8 foot fisher for the remainder of the season.
( thank God we don't hunt out of our boat)
It would of been pretty hard to hide the big blue boat.
If I could only carry one duck call for hunting it would have to be
my R/N/T African black wood Original although I like to bounce around between R/N/T's, Joe Lares , Buck Gardner And Echo's .
For specks and honks I stick with Basin Abomination calls.
I shoot a super blk eagle and a pintail or the old stand by 870 when I'm in the brackish waters of the Susiun Marsh.( spelling ???)
Besides all of that stuff , I live to hunt fowl much like the rest of you guy's and gal's.
I'm glad I couldn't sleep tonight or I never would of found this site.
( surf'n the web )
I see lots of friendly, familiar names and look forward to participating in this forum, good to be back on the boards,and hello to everyone.
