No one else has any tips?

Tip of the Day
In the spring, smallmouth bass become very protective of the bright spots on the bottom that mark their nesting sites. Hook a dark-colored plastic worm through the head, cast it to a bright spot, and let it sink to the bottom. Then just leave it lying there. The bass will become irritated by the worm's presence and will pick the worm up by the head to carry it away. "

Hunt Geese In Comfort
A folding chaise lounge makes an excellent goose hunting seat. Adjust it into its flat position, put it in the middle of your spread, and cluster decoys around to break up its outline. Drape it with camo cloth and lie down, then cover yourself, keeping your gun and arms free so that you can easily sit up to shoot. Hold a decoy between your legs to simulate a goose on a vantage point.

Tip of the Day
Logging skidder trails tell you the way out of the woods. Skidder trails originate at log landings on traveled roads. As the skidders progress into the woods, they make a trail with spurs that fork off to the right and left. The forks make Y shapes, the bottom leg of which always points back toward the landing. Follow the skidder road in the direction indicated by the leg. "

Tip of the Day
Can't keep your tools in order? Here's a solution. The compartmentalized plastic dividers that high-powered rifle bullets are packaged in make excellent holders for small workshop items. Mount a few bullet dividers on the wall in your workshop and use them to hold pencils, screwdrivers, small chisels, files, awls, and drill bits. "

Here is a good tip- When you shoot ducks, kill them with the first shot, it makes hunting much more enjoyable for you and the duck

Tip of the Day
Oily fish like salmon, bluefish, or mackerel taste better when plank-grilled. Marinate a fillet in soy sauce and lemon juice. Lay it skin-side down on a 1/2-inch-thick hardwood plank that you've soaked in water. Put the wet plank on a gas or charcoal grill, cover, and cook for 12 to 15 minutes. The plank will steam, then emit just enough smoke to flavor the fish perfectly."

When you have to entertain for a large group in the blind or tailgating, etc..... precut your green peppers, onions, mushrooms, jalepenos,etc.... the night before and store in one of the NEW and CLEAN clear compartmentalized tackle box trays that you might get in the fishing aisle. I also put white wine into one of the wife's smallish tupperware cantina's with the plastic lid sporting the pour spout so that I can marinade meat. I can cook some venison, duck breasts, steaks, etc....and have the veggies aldente and still socialize or hunt with everyone.

Use old pillow cases to protect your full body or any other decoys. For the cash we shell out for the things it helps keep the paint from chipping. Also you can find some cloth bags at the dollar store. at $20-30 a pop for a decoy we all get a little tear in our eyes when we see the deeks starting to chip.
Once you've had Quack you never go back!

Keep the plastic bags that your decoys come in and use them to protect the paint when storing them.

Take you two(2) roles of toilet paper, brand of your choice, I personally prefer the angel soft with aloe :yes: , take two(2) ziplock baggys and put a roll of toilet paper (of your choice) in each. Put one in your truck, in a cubby hole or wherever you prefer (make sure you dont forget where you put it, sometimes you need it lickity split :yes: ) and put the other role in your blind bad or backpack.
My work here is done... :salude:

My grandfather told me this one when I was a little boy. I don't agree.

Put one duck in a roasting pan with two onions and a brick. Cook at 600 deg. for 4 hours. Remove the bird from the oven. Throw away the bird and eat the brick. The brick tastes better.
It's not my fault I'm at the top of the foodchain.

You will need to sign in to your photobucket account. You click on edit, at the top of the picture that you want to use as your avatar. Where it said resize image, make sure that is on: "avatar 100x75" Then you can click on resize.
Let me know if it works. :salude:

People, I am going to appologize for getting off track...I am sorry. :oops:

I didn't realize that I was in this thread, I should of sent him a PM...pardon me.

My tip: Keep a hunting log. Certain spots on a lake or marsh draw ducks year after year. If your records tell you ducks throng a particular hole on days with, say, a northwest wind, that's the place to hunt under those conditions. :thumbsup:
