The Rambling DHC Decoy.

Postby don taylor » Wed Oct 13, 2010 2:04 pm

Daffy started off and from what I read had a pretty unfortunate outing with it.

Grunt doc is next. Let's hope for a better outcome. He should be getting it in short order and be posting up.

Clutch, Jehler and myself to follow.

Even if you have an uneventful day and/or get skunked, its not just about killing with it, its where its been. Post up at least a few pictures here. The sunrise, it in the decoys, whatever. Tell us about the day.

Bayou, I'd hope that the other ones involving any scheduling fade to the 2nd or 3rd page. Everything should be able to be handled through PM's now involving schedule changes.

Thanks for posting that up, rick. I read you two were going to switch. I'm glad it worked out.
:thumbsup:

Let's keep this thread about the decoy and not get off topic and we can make it how ever long it needs to be. My previous rant was just to try and keep people on topic. Every regular here is aware of how things get hijacked. The same goes for the ***OFFICAL 'Son of' Thread****.

Who do we have to see to get an official Decoy #1 thread stickied? We've got two going again and more confusion. One stickied thread with one master list, no matter how garbaged up the thread gets, makes a whole lot more sense than what we're doing now.

(My hand-off, Huntall6, hadn't seen that his date was moved and needs to swap for something earlier, and that's the sort thing a prominent list - and not waiting until the last minute to make arrangements - can help prevent.)

Rick, I'll post a message up in the mod forum to see about the sticky, and maybe a consolidation of the threads... :thumbsup:

Thanks for the sticky. Has anyone traded dates with huntall6 or taken his place, yet? I'd have no trouble hunting the decoy daily from its arrival here until it needs to go to Rcdinaz/+/+, but would hope someone steps up.

And that bring up another question: are you still in for Jan 15, Rcdinaz/+/+? If so, you might want to PM me a mailing address.

I would have to agree. it was a good day. there were birds in the air for most of the morning. The first group showed up just a few minutes into legal shooting time. We nailed the 1st 2 without ever blowing the call. Not a bad start. We had several fly-by's but no takers. All of the super secrete duck attracting tactics were employed: pouring a cup of coffee, taking a leak, walking out of arms reach of the gun....etc. all met with minimal response. Just as we were about to load up, a pair came in screaming fast and low. thanks to crappy shooting (by me), only one went down. Should have had both for sure. Anyway, the rest will be in the journal.

...speaking of which, has anyone given any thought on how the contents of the journal will be distributed? other than having whoever ends up with it scanning and posting each page, I don't see an easier way.

If I take it then it will have two trips through Texas, this bother anyone? Aggiechiro will have it around thanksgiving and will hunt near or on the coast. I will hunt it more around central Texas so it will be a change of scenery.

When you get it, you'll understand, but Daffy included a feather from his 1st Canada Goose in the journal. It got me to thinking, so I packed along a small woden box big enough to fit the journal itself and anything else that you may want to add to the project. A momento of the hunt, or something that would be considered typical of "you." It's nothing extravagant, but I did have to go into a foo foo craft store to find a wooden box in time. that's gotta be worth something at least.

one more note: please make sure you rinse the decoy off before shipping it to the next hunter. I for one would not want this project to result in the unintentional transfer of invasive species of plants/critters/etc.

Very good point. Ummm, I wonder if anyone who travels around the country duck hunting actually does this. :huh:

Flightstopper, I don't think anyone will mind that it goes to Texas twice.
