I have a mixed feeling on it. I think it is cool that you can see where they go and how they move. Some of those ducks go a long way. I dont like seeing there current hold on the map. To me it is like cheating. Thats one of the reasons I hunt ducks and turkeys. There are hard to hunt. You have to do your homework and scout alot and it can change overnight. Now all we have to do is get on the computer and look to find them. I guess it is just new to me but different and would take some getting used to. It just kinda takes the fun out of the supprise of scouting before the season and seeing the ducks filter in. This topic is going to get alot of posts. :thumbsup:

I have to agree with Patrick on this one...I like seeing their migration path and everywhere they have been in between...but, too many hunters are going to use this as a scouting tool and i don't agree with that...being overseas right now i check the satellite ducks about once a week just to see where they are traveling...happy hunting and hope to be hunting with some of you next season...

Correction, those are not hunters, theyre lazy worthless waste's of skin. :thumbsdown:



Survey Says...
Cyberscouting


Why give the sorry ***, cyberscouter's another tool to help them in their lazy arsed way of finding birds.

Get your *** out and scout if you want to kill ducks work for it!

So whats the deal with your buddy Jim (sutherdukhunter) and his woodie shooting ability. I cant get him to elaborate on the whole issue :toofunny:

I guess he's planning to get back down here to Grandma's house before season's over. I'll see if I cant put him on a few easy shots.

i took him out during the early teal and woodie season before i left for overseas and we had been shooting clay and he was lighting me up and talking trash...then when it came down to meat he couldn't seem to hit anything...we had four ducks come with in range that first morning and i hit the first 2 and the other 2 got away...so i give him flak over it...pretty good duck caller though...i will give him that...give him flak next time you see or talk to him...

Cant say that I do, I'm not familiar with the Bobcat.


Edit...
Just found their website.
Actually I do know of these. A buddy of mine in hastings has one.
He loves it. THough he added some wood the floor and made a layout type backrest in it and added some weight its still a good low profile boat. Tracks well when paddled with a kayak paddle.
THey are a very stable platform for hunting.

Hey fellas, I don't see it saying how "up to date" it is.

Does it show you within a 15 minute window where the ducks are, is there a 3 day delay?

I definately like the Idea, but to avoid the cyberscouting as pre-mentioned I would hope they would put a delay into effect on it.

Not sure how long would be a good delay, but definately something over 48hrs.
Are you listed on the Worldwide Waterfowl Hunters map?

They update the site once a day, now what time of day I am not sure of. But, that is still not enough of a time delayt for the cyber scouters. I like the idea just might need to rethink some parts of it.

Maybe not show the map just tell us what states the birds have moved in or if they started to migrate. just to get an idea of what kind of ducks are coming down. So the lazy people have to still get out it just a matter when.

I think as a term of Hunting they should close the site to the public and reopen it when the seasons are over. The only people that need that kind of info are the people studying the birds. Once a day is not cool. That makes things way to easy. If it doesnt stop, people are going to use this to the point of going to hunt an area that they have never scouted and the people that do scout are going to be &#^%ed because of the number of people that use the computer as a scouting tool and then hunt the areas form what they have seen on the computer. :thumbsdown:
