Not completely certain why, but wanted to make mention of a couple of thing that happened over the weekend.
First, while at a high school football game.....notice a younger gentleman...approx. 20ish.....wearing max 4 jacket and asked if he hunted ducks. He replied "yes".....so asked where he lived.....he said around the monroe area.....then just kinda turned and went his way.
Next, while in the waterfowl clothing section at bass pro....struck up a conversation with a younger gentleman as well....bout 25 or so i'm guessing......again, ask where he lived and turns out he lives fairly close to where i live......during our conversation mentioned that i end up going alone alot and asked if he was interested in getting together sometime.....he said " well I'll take your number and if something comes up i'll give ya a call".
Now, maybe it's because I'm an older individual that's been around awhile, but what ever happened to just talking without being threatened that someone is going to try to take over your dang hunting hole. What happened to the opportunity for new experiences with new fellow duck hunters......or is it you have so many dang friends that there is no room for another. A gentleman who has never seen me.....just knows about me through this forum......has offered for me to come shoot with him sometime. I hunt some private ponds and on lake lanier in the hall county and surrounding area.....some over near carrollton.....now, no secret where i go.....if your in the area sometime and would like to hunt with a 45 yr old, husband and dad of 3 who loves to persue the art of killin ducks and learning more how to be more successful.....give me a shout sometime.
