I love my $1300 Benelli M2. I have had it in the mud so bad I couldnt see the camo on it. Thursday I dropped it in the water. Of the 4 guns that were there, it was the only one that didn't freeze up (2 of those were pumps) I have no guilt about using it as the tool that it is.

Its all a state of mind. When my fancy camo gets worn smooth, I am going to get out the krylon and touch it up.

The thing I find most funny is that a Benelli treated like that often times will out last a "work horse" pump that has been babied. By far!

simplyperfectbenelli wouldn't last 2 trips to the launch in south Louisiana without having his rudeness pointed out to him and returned ten fold. Topwaters at the launch learn in a viciously Darwinian manner how to quickly load and get the fridge out of the way, or they suffer for their learning disability.

There is no excuse for three guys to take ten minutes getting a boat on the trailer. Ever.

Lazy inconsideration grates my very last nerve.

Interesting that we have so many OOS'ers on the Kansas forum. I don't mind, it's just interesting.

How many of you Kansas residents lurk on other state's forums??



I don't.


Perhaps we Jayhawks are just more interesting..........?

This cracks me up. You only had to wait 10 or 15 minutes to load your boat? Try going to a busy ramp in the summer time and wait on the part time boaters to load their boats. You would go into cardiac arrest because you would be so upset! On the other hand though, the ramp is no place to put gear away and tie down boats. Get it on the trailer and get out. Tie it down and put away gear away from the ramp. Common courtesy.

Nobody won. A buddy of mine has been hunting with nelli and says hes a pretty good guy. Now were butt hurt toward each other over something that could have been resolved easily.

Seems like every time I read this forum, I'm reminded why I quit posting here. You young guys will someday understand why many of the more experienced waterfowlers roll our eyes at most of the pissin' arguements you guys have on this board.

Just ask Mudpack, most ethical and curteous hunters will go out of their way to get on and off the boat ramp as fast as possible, especially if someone else is waiting. The beefstick measuring contests about who kills more ducks and this and that only serves to label you as young, nieve, and arrogant.

I can second the comments by the guys from LA. When I lived in TN, one boat ramp would offload 30-40 boats in about an hour and a half......no BS, watched it happen time and time again. But, when some topwater showed up and didn't know the peckin' order, he got an earfull, and was helped off the ramp and put in the back of the line. Lesson here, is get your crap ready BEFORE backing onto the ramp.

The future of duck hunting in KS is bleak due to the limited waters and excessive hunter numbers, but at the very least we should learn to be curteous and thoughtful of others. If you have the "me against the world" attitude, and you think you are the best duck killer in the world, get yourself some perspective, you have no friggin' clue! Everybody had to learn somehow, but in my day we ate some humble pie once in a while. You guys should learn some humility, it would go a long way to give others a better opinion of you.

Good day,

No high and mighty card here. Just common sense and decency. Unlike many of you, I don't read this board daily, so forgive me for commenting on a thread you had forgotten about. :bow:
