That is why I'm here :yes: There was a big hoopla over the duck dynasty crowd screwing with everyones hunts saturday it seemed more than average numbers and when people started raising cain about it they axed it myself included. Had one group of idiots hunting out of a blue bass boat wearing grey t shirts set up 50 yards from us and shoot coots at 80 yards then came over to chat about 9 am.He walked up with 4 brand new duck commander calls even though I was ticked the birds weren't there so me and my partner got a good laugh out of it.

That got outta hand quick. I was watching it. 0-100 in no time at all. Alot of their main posters
got banned. Guess they proved their point though. They don't care about seasoned water fowlers just cyber scouters and newbies. Hope they enjoy it.

O I agree it was getting rough I was online as it was happening I mean let a man rant as much time and money as seasoned hunters spend getting ready and doing their sport to have some newbie or googan come in and screw up weeks or preparation let him vent a little. Granted if you choose to hunt public water that is what you get like myself saturday morning doesn't mean I'm not ticked but some of us don't have spare cash after paying for everything else for a lease plus in middle georgia I enjoy hunting the bigger lakes I prefer hunting divers hard to get those on a beaver swamp. Did killer come over here or just give up on it?

Y'all's posts are spot on... All I do is duck hunt, I spend lots of time and money to find, and hunt public land birds.. There is nothing better or more rewarding than having public ducks committed to your decoys.
The googans are in force more than ever, and it's not just where I hunt, but every where. There is nothing we can do but vent on a forum, or possible jail time!
Go ahead and vent... True duck hunters know what it's about!!!

Yep. Rem, apparently I logged in here before as PaulD but can't remember my password or what email I had it on. It's a googan fest, had guys up river where I've never seen a soul before on the opener. I got booted off of GON cause I associate with known trouble makers. Whatever that means.

Lack of common sense over there, you can't be political correct to every one hoping that nothing will get out of hand. That's what's wrong with America now, I will not try to please the masses!

After 25 years on the water hunting ducks and geese all I can tell you is it cycles around. The guys complaining now are the ones that were doing the same things they are complaining about to others 10-15 years...though they'll never admit it....and the ones doing it now will be complaining about new guys doing it to them in another 10 years.

Waste of time complaining about it...it continues and just gets worse every year. Blame it on new guys, Duck Dynasty, Drake Waterfowl, etc....it's just a part of life. Once you learn to ignore it and make it work for you on the water you'll be a lot happier and better off for it. The complaining just makes you miserable when you go hunting and takes away form the real reason we do it...or at least me anyway...to get away from everyday life for just a moment or two and recharge my mind. Don't let someone else dictate your mood...not worth it.

ON the flip side....glad GON shut it down. That was embarrassing for both the new guys and "seasoned" hunters. :no:

New here and had been on the other sight too, enjoyed all the guys then giving advice and knowledge they had. Understood their frustration and thoughts. Agree it was unfair and childish that governing bodies couldn't let feelings be heard and voiced. There was no harm done and many some of the wanta be duck hunters would have read and listened to the experienced guys. I won't go back there.

No, it wasn't that bad. At least I didn't see anything that bad. From what I saw one of the moderators didn't like that he got called out and challenged a little bit, so he banned half the normal contributors and nixed the forum for a while. In my opinion the moderators were more childish than the ones making the posts they didn't like. The almost seemed to gloat in it a little bit. It was like, "I don't like that you challenged me, so I will just nix the whole thing for everyone." I wouldn't mind if they left it down. It was entertaining at times, but I think stopping some of the name dropping would keep people from riding hours to hunt bodies of water they have never scouted. Those are the people that most of the guys were complaining about that started the whole thing.

Lmao!!! Yep! Then when they say "we kill our 11" then you point out they didn't have a limit in the picture, they say "I never said we killed a limit!"...... Uumm,
