He's bragging about a jacked up toyota? Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against toyotas but come on if you're gonna brag at least have something classic or something truly tough.
I think jamie should read the respect post. In my experience, those that have to brag can't really deliver when asked to.

Well, I personally don't have any elves to bust ducks for but I will keep it in mind if someday I find myself with some elves to take care of.

if you have never hunted a day where ducks absolutely ignore your calling, you don't get out much...


knowing how and when to call are very important tools when it comes to killing ducks..

that said, there are a few tricks to killing ducks on those few days a year when they seem to go deaf...

Jamie Duck- man you stirred up the folks around here. I am thinking you might be onto something with the calling and busting some ducks. I am thinking I might learn a few things from you. Besides I could use the calling in the blind to turn them onto the X

bud i have been reading these forums for a while and the consesus is you really dont need to call to kill ducks like said before be on the X and if they want to be there they will come. You can have all of your expensive calls and decoys and i will use about 10 mallard dekes and let my calls sit in the car and watch the birds fly in because that is where they want to be. If you ever hunt public land you will understand exactly why no calling is better than throwing hail calls and everything else you can think of at those ducks. This is the exact reason by birds are call shy because everyone and their brother is calling to them trying to get in. I normally hunt on my own out at Cedar Creek Lake in Stanford and i will not call at all when i go because it is useless if the bird want to be there it will come if it doesnt you can all until you are blue in the face and watch it fly off just like everyone else. Hate to sound like a prick but most of the people will agree its not all about calling.


You ever hunted Bayou Meto?

hoyboy wrote:i agree with the x factor method. do your scouting and find where the ducks want to be. Ive been in flooded corn fields with the decoy spread looking flawless, motin in the water, everyone well hid in the pit, and some impressive duck calling to top it off and have ducks just look and keep flying and struggling to just end the day with a few ducks on my tote. but on my best hunts ive had only a couple of decoys set out and never using a call and could not beat the ducks off with a stick. I have been walking in the decoy spread and have ducks light beside me.If a duck has a predetermined mindset to be in a certain spot, then it is going to go there! as far as having a well trained retreiver to help you kill ducks ...... :huh: .......its just nice to have one of them so my lazy *** doesnt have to get out of the blind to get the duck and i can eat some eggs and sausage that kydrake has cooked in the blind :biggrin:


Nothin like a good breakfast in the blind!! I love cookin!!! :yes: :yes:

Its always nice to see a new guy join and stir things up a month or two before the season... :thumbsup:

In my world the most important factor is being in the field more often. The less a fella hunts, the less chance you give yourself to kill ducks. Basic Kentucky math. Keep scratchin' your heads young pups and rollin' your eyes. You'll get married, produce children, get a career, work overtime, go to 5 Thanksgivings and 5 Christmases one day. And if you think your Juliet is "real cool with you hunting" while you're dating now, just wait til you throw that bling on her and she's sitting at home alone during duck season... you may still hunt, but there will be repercussions. :bow:

Hardly have it rough, but I wouldn't have it any other way! I'm just saying enjoy the being able to cut class, spending the night whenever/wherever, and the runnin' and gunnin'. I mean who wouldn't rather be in the blind/pit/field/slough/timber/boat than at work? :huh:
I enjoy the slow down, I'd just rather enjoy it with more hunting involved.

Mox, it is amazing how the rules change when a ring goes on the finger. Hunting wasn't a big deal at all before...now at times it becomes grounds for divorce. And the multiple holidays really gets to be a headache. But hey all in all the tax return makes it all worth while!!! Ha ha

Don't forget he calls em first! Calls em from miles away. I heard he once called a duck that was flying over Texas all the way to Kentucky! Hit the call and he sucked right in!

The X factor....if the ducks want to be where you are then they are going to land there. Most of the time if the ducks are coming right to you then you don't need to call unless you do a few quacks and chuckles but I wouldn't even do that until I see wingtips and tail feathers. As for decoys...I am using the same decoys my dad gave me 5 years ago, with no new paint and old as can be and we are still killing ducks. Equipment...I can make my 20 dollar haydels double reed mallard sound just as good as somebody else RNT

Oh boy!! If ain't ole bluewaffles himself!! Even gots him a new screen name as well. Waffles and junior duck must be cut from the same genes. They both truly know more than all of us, can make a kazoo hypotize large flocks of greenheads and definitely have the same problem with repetitive BS flowing from their mouths.

Warning: these guys are straight up killas!!!
