hey man shoot me a PM with your number and i'll help ya out. I'm in jax too.... west side of town out in argyle. We can get you going in the right direction and i'm sure i'll find room for you to tag along in the fall if you want. One of my good hunting buddies lives over there with you (im sure he will jump in here too). there are plenty of oppertunities around if you know what your doing or catch a ride with someone that does. If it works out we can trade out some deer and dove then GREAT and if not well that's fine too.... I always try to help out guys when i can and as stak said your certianly going about this the right way by offering to exchange with guys and not just begging for everyone's secret honey holes. that gets you outcast quick!! Duck hunters are more than a little touchy about sharing hunting info...
Ohh and start collecting the basics too... now's the time. At a VERY min your going to need a shotgun, waders, half a dozen Blue wing teal decoys, rain gear, and preferably a small boat. Kayak, hybrid, canoe, small jons, 4 rivers, or momarsh's are the ticket here. Trolling motor also really helps but you CAN paddle most of the time. If your really wanting to go for it then a small 10 HP or less mudmotor is nice. Then the sky is the limit from there. Lots of different decoy options, mojos, bigger boats, layouts, dogs, fancy gear, clothes, ect ect ect.... But thats all unnessesary really, just nice sometimes.
