You can also squeeze underneeth the wings and that too will sufficate the bird.

Most dinner forks will suffice for a choke tube wrench. They are also much harder to lose.

The only thing a 10 gauge is good for is emptying your wallet and hurting your shoulder.

Here's a helpful anatomical chat I concocted in order to help someone find where to shoot a duck:

When setting out decoys before starting shed clothing till you start feeling cold then start setting up. This will help keep you from working up a sweat and you will warm up enough while moving around to set up. Don't wait till after you have already worked up a sweat. Your clothes will stay drier and you will stay warmer.

why do you bring pots hunting? do you cook in the blind/boat? why do you stash them? are you afraid that someone will steal them? :huh:

Dutch ovens are expensive so must be kept out of sight until in use, and then put away quickly after ingesting whatever you've cooked up. Pot theft is a huge problem.

if you are going to infiltrate a vegan/vegitarion site, don't tell everyone on DHC about it, just post the end result.

A standard Mojo will mount into a 3/4" piece of EMT conduit. I use a 8' stick to extend the depth my Mojo can be in.

Tip: If a black cat crosses the road in front of you in the wee hours of the night in a small town on the way to the hunt - that day's hunt will either be completely awesome (rare) or a complete bust. Nothing in between.

When going to eat after hunting REMEMBER to always tip your waitress well. The next time we hit that spot it wasn't the same.

When hunting flooded timber, throw rope over the surface of the water 100 yards to each side of the hole you're hunting. That way, anyone who wants to come squeeze in on your hunt will get a fowled prop.

lol. I used to use this same trick when fishing. On the weekends we would get the weekend urinal fleet trying to follow us out to the hot spots. Used to take 1/4 inch floating poly and tie a burlap bag on to each end, do a quick zig zag and drop the bags in the water. Sometimes we would get 2 or 3 boats in one shot. :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3:
