Please don't tell me there are no secret spots. There may not be, but not everyone knows (you can tell by people always asking where to go) these areas as well as the when to go there. The when is as important as the where. Some spots one may be able to get to off the bottom of the lotto. Couple "look at me I'm good post" about that same area, it'll turn it into a need a ressi spot. Maybe you have a ressi all the time?
A great satisfaction in hunting happens when after some duckless days, experience, putting a plan together based off of that, you go there, execute and come in with a nice bag.
While you're at it, why do you need 3.5 inch shells to kill ducks, period??
No one can control what people write on these forums. I'll tell you this though. I know a guy that would always tout the line you are doing so now. He would always try to be everyones friend. He got invited on some hunts by folks he met off these forums. He had some good hunts in places he never went or had access too. He talked openly about it. Guess what happened? The invites stopped. Nobody wanted to hunt with him because he had a big mouth. Guess what he did? He stopped blabbing. Guess what happened? He got new invites.
These forums are not for blabbing. They are to share experiences, educate, make new friends, and hopefully get more folks into helping the resource. Spot burning is just that, burning, and has nothing to do with getting better as a waterfowler. All it does is getting a person you don't even know a strap for a day and crowd a spot.
Lighten up francis. The forums are just for that, duck hunting. If someone wants to post a picture of a pile of of birds and put the name of the refuge he shouldn't get blasted for it. Last I checked delevan isn't a 1 acre refuge LOL! No one will know the spot where those birds came from. Have a slight case of strap envy? Guess what I hunted greylodge saturday 12/7 WEST SIDE. Oh no, I just spot burned 5,000 acres! Good luck with that spot
I dont know what an invite feels like. I hunt alone now from nearly being shot by some dumbass. And arguing over a duck is not my cup of tea.
Are you upset that dfg posts the results online? Maybe call them too and raise a fit.
I can't even shoot 3 and 1/2 in shells from my gun
