Respect

Postby mmayes » Wed Oct 19, 2011 12:01 pm

I got to thinking (thats a dangerous thing) a thread from another site talked about Repsect. I pose the question how does one define Respect as it pertains to Duck Hunting?

Is it general knowledge of the sport and willingness to share ideas and thought?

Is it having all the cool toys and places to hunt?

Is it having the money to go to all the best places and clubs?

Is it the fact someone came up through the hunting ranks and reputation for ethical and legal hunting?

Is it for killing many ducks?

Is it letting everyone know you know everything (whether you do or not) about the sport and not bashfull telling everyone?

Is it being a prostaffer?

Or is it some mixture of the various parts?


Please everyone share your thoughts

Prostaffer, no doubt. That's the pinnacle of waterfowling. Looks like I've got a long ways to go compared to some of you guys. :bow:

The duck hunters that I have known that I respect the most are a mix of a lot of the things you mentioned. I think one of the most important aspects is a willingness to share with those who do not know and not do it in a cocky way. In other words, help the new guy out but not act like a know it all. They usually hunt with what works. They have probably had just about every new toy out there but have eliminated what does not work and often stick to the classics, because they just plain work. Some have hunted private land that they have hunted for many years and have never paid a penny for it, which is a testament to their sportsmanship and respect for others. Others have hunted public land and know it like the back of their hand. They know those that work at the public spot, including the cpo's, and they greet these people by name and never check their license's because they know these people are trustworthy. They usually kill birds, but it's often because they are more patient than other people in the area. They love to watch the birds work and love the time in the blind with friends. They can work ducks in more times than not, but could never win a calling contest. They never get into arguments over spots, if someone is there already they move on to another spot...they always have options.
These are the guys I like to hunt with or even just run into while out hunting. Unfortunately, there seems to be far more of the guys that aren't like this out there.

Hangin in there. Just sold my rig, and bought a duracraft 1860, so I need this rain to stop so I can get to fixing this thing up. Picked up a beavertail blind 2200 series down in murray for an excellent price, and I have it installed. Had to cut 1.5ft in length out of it, and trimmed down the outer poles to fit the gunnels.
Ordered and received 2-10ft x 20ft camo nets with mesh backing to camo the blind, and I already had about 20lbs of blind grass. Have to wait til spring to paint, getting too close to season for it to cure properly.

Im ready for the season to get started. Heading to Iowa in a few weeks, and then to central MO. Got drawn for Horseshoe WMA hunt for early december. Ready for the 3 months of early mornings, late nites, smell of gunpower and wet dogs, and the sights of cupped wings!!!!!!!!!!!

How are things your way Matt?

I am a 50 year old duck hunter. I didnt come from a waterfowling family or tradition. No one ever took me on a youth duck hunt.
I got my dog from a back yard breeder and trained her after reading a few books.
I run hotbuy decoys, and have some other used ones I picked up on Craigs List.
I bought an old jon boat and am fixing it up, but am having trouble getting a series of old boat motors to run.
No one taught me how to call, I am self taught. I started with cheap wal mart calls and slowly got better calls.
I get frustrated hunting on public land because many of my fellow Americans show poor manners and have little respect for the sport.
I drive a 1993 Ford F150 Pick up..
I am a volunteer for my local DU committe.

I am the 99%
