Need a guide in RP zone

Postby ohioboy » Tue Aug 14, 2012 9:29 am

I recently found out that my wife is having twins. I need help finding a guide in the resident population zone that you guys recommend. I would like to shoot geese and ducks if possible and assume I can find this fairly easily. This might be the last big outing for a while, so I don't mind paying for results. Any leads or suggestions are welcome.

Now about camo outfits for twins. Anyone have extras. :beer:

Bill is a good guy and will let you know if he's on birds or not. When they are in his fields, the shooting can be awesome.
My wife says I don't pay enough attention to her...or something like that. I really wasn't listening.

Ohio, you sounded like you were doing ok last year... Why the change of heart to pay someone this year? If she hasnt had the twins yet, (congrats by the way), then you should still have a few months before you have to stick closer to home...

I've hunted with M&A many times. Good outfit and good locations. As said, Bill will treat you right.

I worked with Bill at M&A for a number of years and he is a stand up guy and will treat you right.

buzz, i looked at our private and public conversations and i am not sure where you got the impression that last year was good. this is a direct quote from me last year "nice sunrise, bad year." and i would say that pretty much summed it up. greydog, you agree? look man, i got nothing to hide and i am not too proud to admit that last year sucked.

i want a good hunt, and one that someone else does the leg work on. M and A looks like a good outfit. i emailed them. thanks guys.

Buzz, you seemed to have lots of luck last year and hunt not to far from me-why dont you take me out? you claim you saw ducks last year that i have never or have rarely seen around here. and all in one day...let's say i am calling your bluff. i would even come without a gun and help with decoys. just want to see what you are and that i am not.

I am with you OB. 2011-12 was not the year for the killers, or the bird watchers for that matter. Enjoyed many nice mornings that were unproductive. Got pretty discouraging near the end of the season. Waterfowlers are the ultimate optimist/masochists. Have to think it would be pretty hard to be any poorer than last year. The one thing I can say for being a card-carrying pessimist is that I'm rarely disappointed. I, for one,can't wait. :biggrin: :thumbsup:

I said you were doing ok! As far as what I am, and you are not... probably not much difference between us. As anyone on here that hunts with me will tell you, I am no fantastic caller, or great shot, or have nice decoys. More than anything I just scout a lot more than your average waterfowl hunter and I am very good at getting close to, if not on, the X. If you wanted to get together at a nuetral public spot in between us sometime this season, I would be happy to split a thermous of coffee and a sunrise with you. Maybe even a beer and lunch afterwards if we do well.

Ohio, reading your reply to buzz, I can't help but think you're implying that he was lying or embelishinf his reports last year. I have hunted many times with buzz and can tell you hes a stand up guy and doesn't lie or exaggerate on his reports. I can also tell you that he scouts like nobodies business and that is a major reason for his success. To basically call him a liar and then ask for him to prove his reports by having him take you to one of his spots seems out of line.

Not trying to start a war, just think it was unfair to call him our like that. That being said, congrats on the twins and good luck this season. :beer:

slice, i am just a skeptic. thats all. not looking to steal a spot, regardless of our differences, i would never do that. this is a tough area to get permission. i get that and respect that.
