Thats tough. Ive hunted flooded timber, flooded fields, open lakes, sloughs and marshes. But if I had to pick one place it would propably be in mexico or up north off the coast. Both would be something different.
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

I'm with ISHOOTDIVERS, I'd like to shoot a King. It's the last bird in my North American Duck collection to fill. I also need 6 hens of various species to fill the "pairs" collection. So I'd have to say the Aleutian Islands would probably be my pick. I have a friend going after his King Eiders this next season, and let me tell you that it isn't a cheap hunt. He's spending $3,500 on just the guide fees alone! He's guaranteed 4 birds, so you do the math :eek: !

My pick is any where that it is legal and there are birds and game.
Build memories, take a kid out doors and teach them about nature by interacting with it, hunting and fishing.

I've never really had the urge to leave Manitoba, but I sure would like to hunt flooded timber someday.

Is it september the 8th yet???
