Marsh volume and behavior

Postby EcatMagoo » Sun Nov 18, 2012 2:20 pm

With the lack of water I find myself hunting around others much more than normal. Lately, I've been thinking about marsh etiquette. Some guys keep really quiet while others have no restraint to volume. What type of hunter are you?

Marsh volume and behavior

Postby DanJeffandJack » Sun Nov 18, 2012 4:43 pm

Went out the other day to a popular marsh. It was very busy lots of groups right on top of each other, but I have to admit with the exception of setting up on top of each other everyone was very courteous. No over calling, no shooting birds working other people's spreads that swing wide. I was actually pretty impressed.

Went to the marsh this morning, water really low and only a couple guys in the same pool. They got just a tad loud, but the next pool over sounded like they was having a pontoon party.

I bring out the portable boombox and crank it up in the marsh. Afterwards, we sit around in the parking lot drinking beer and bbqing. Who doesn't like to paaaaaaaarty.

I appreciate others who keep the unnecessary noise to a minimum. I try to do the same.

So far this year, I've not hunted near another party. (fingers crossed)
It's been a blessing.

Where is the option that i usually keep quiet, until some idiot doesn't send his dog and it barks and whines flaring birds for miles. Also when ppl are not being courteous to you and other by skyblasting, setting up on you, or just flat out shooting your swing, I will voice my opinion in those circumstances. The only thing that will ever get said by me is nice shot to the others in my group we might chuckle about a miss or a pillow fight but that is about it. You never know when the next flock is working behind you.

Is this acceptable enough behavior?
