Here is the "decades of experience"

Just joined your wonderful web world last night. Love the info, comments, and Water Fowling spirit. I think it's a great place for a young guy like my self to hook-up with the Ole' Massas' and step my game up - right now it's lacking!!
I like many of you have the disease! Caught it at the end of last season and I'm terminal!
Was able to, by mostly luck, bag some sea ducks of Duxbury beach in the late season, I live and grew up in Hingham. I'm trying to get all tuned in for this season and be ready to go, yeah I know I’m getting a late start, but I’m thinking of it in 90 degree heat, so I have the making of a young duck man!
I would really like to get an idea of some places to scout out in the South Shore, where I might bag some Mallards or other puddlers. I've hunted upland most of my life, and think that Myles Standish has potential but it's not really a place I can scout after work...
Was thinking about Trip Hammer pond/Wompatuck State park in Hingham. Any other thoughts or advise? Please barrage me with any and all info that you think a Newbie like me might benefit from.
Anybody have any experience at Duxbury beach in the early season? I'd imagine that there's a decent Mallard population held up there during the early migration, but I never was around to check.
I look forward to your responses and hope to catch some of you in the blind! Best and Happy Pre-Season -Erich S.
