Looking for partner - Chicago western suburbs

Postby j0seguzman » Tue Jan 01, 2013 4:58 pm

I'm looking to partner up with someone from oak lawn or the orland park area. Mainly interested in goose hunting on weekends, but would also entertain some duck hunting (next year). I'm willing to shell out some serious cash to complement whatever spread you have. I have a good work ethic and don't mind taking care of the grunt work.

I could use a 16 footer and, of course, filled with BFs. And, yes, a Sherpa to carry them out. Please let me know.

Funny, but I know there are many hunters who are up there in age and on a fixed income. They would not mind some help and would welcome newer decoys to their spread. I'm not trying to take advantage of anyone, just pointing out what I could bring to the partnership. If you are healthy, mobile and with enough disposable income then consider yourself lucky.

Better off going the guided route, the last few years have sucked.

Thanks, but I really enjoy seeing the results from all the effort put in, for me setting up the decoys and calling the birds in is an integral part of the hunting experience.

Not good to assume. Most veterans have fields and equipment well established over the years. And, some "up in age" have well established incomes and take less risks with their money. As a suggestion, maybe you should start purchasing equipment and/or find fields. Problem with people starting out or relocating is that they don't have anywhere to hunt, so I see your motivation to post. Public ground is a good start. If any one on here feels compelled to take you out, more power to them and you.

Thanks.

I do have some equipment but stopped buying as I don't want to buy duplicates to what a potential partner may already have. I have a property on the river and started (late) asking farmers to let me hunt, but everything is taken this year.


BTW: I did not take offense to your comments, a bit unwarranted, but no big deal.

SureShot, pm sent.

You can never duplicate equipment. Never. It's a sickness of how much you collect over time. Knock on more doors and others will join you. If you have permission from a landowner, ask them for a referral to other landowners that allow hunters. Works most of the time. Constructive criticism.
