So not to sound like a sad sack, but I have had a rough go of it this year. I lost my Dad a few years back and he had all the connections with the private stuff. I decided to get back out and start hunting again, public. I have no connections with the private stuff. Dont have any local buddies who hunt waterfowl. Dont have any good spots. Cant afford to join a hunt club. Been out 4 times this year and have been sky blasted more times than can count, been skunked with no birds on 3 hunts, only got 2 birds so far this year. blah, blah, blah. I am just looking for any advice. I dont want to steal spots. I am willing to be a tag along if you will have me, just looking for some good folks to go shoot birds with. Freezing by myself with nothing to shoot at is getting old. side note - I dont know if anybody surfs around on coloradowaterfowl.com but I have been waiting for my activation for 4 weeks, just another note of frustration.
