So I got stationed at Scott afb back in March. Been doing doing some scouting and I'm just wondering where...joking, screw that noise. I'm from east coast we never had the opportunity to field hunt.

From what I've gathered field hunting is kind of big here, is it best for me to drop the cash on a layout blind? I'm trying to learn the Midwest ways. So far it is looking a hell of a lot better than Carolina duck hunting.

I know you're close to St Louis, which means you're close to the Mississippi. That's where it's at. If you go east looking for hunting opportunities, yes, it will be mostly field hunting. If I were you, I'd look into finding opportunities along the Miss. That's gonna be where it's at.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

I'd bet that he will tell us he's been using that name for a long time, and the new Duck Commander craze has ruined it for him.

Remember Michael Bolton from "Office Space"? "Why should I change my name? He's the one that sucks".

I'm his defense he joined in '11 which was before the craze stated. I think...

This guy's been on the site for close to two years. He's just new to Illinois. In the internet age, two years is old school. He was into Duck Commander way back when.

LOL. Tough love, man. I will help you out too. Call em close and shoot em straight. Can you like me now?

I would take you out if you were closer to Northern/Central border. It would be a haul to just look at clouds all day and think you saw a duck fly over.

And, I will admit fault. I never looked at your post numbers. I assumed you just registered. My bad. Stupid Polack.

Yeah, what these guys said DC. You ain't too far off the x where your at. I do know it can get pretty cutthroat out there though. There are a few really good members of this site from that area that I will pm and ask if I can put you in contact with them. It wouldn't surprise me if you knew who they are already though :thumbsup:

I'll probably take you up on that Huntall, I'm thinking I might explore a little more this year instead of the same ol thing. I had a real good duck year, minus opening day, and even killed a few geese.
