I have been reading this website for quite sometime and this is my first post. I live in Chicago, am 27 years old, and work in finance. Despite my current residence, I love to hunt ducks and geese and try to get away from the city at least once a week to get in a hunt during the season. In the previous years, my dad was my primary hunting partner. However, due to a recent back problem (hate to watch parents get old) it looks like he will be spending more time with mom and less time in the blind.
I have a few spots that are decent, nothing spectacular but getting away from the city/office and staring at some plastic decoys with the dog beats sleeping in on Saturday and Sunday.
If anyone is interested in swapping a hunt, joining me for a hunt, or anything else related to bird hunting let me know and hopefully we can work something out.
I have a pick up truck, a fair amount of decoys, a mutt dog that cries and doesnt retreive brids, and am willing to travel.
Good luck hunting this season and be safe.
