So Cal is my guess. The mountian outlines should be a dead give away to any of the locals out there as to exactly where it is.

Thats heaven where the birds never quit landing, and the shells just keep coming. No plugs, no limits, just sore shoulders

Quacked...funny thing about your post is that there would be sore shoulders in Heaven. It is kind of like a painful reward. But you gotta have the bruise to go along with it. Lets call it a "duck hunters tattoo".

all good guesses. the peaks you see in the background are the legendaryy "buttes" found north of sacramento in an area known as the "butte sink".

all around are mountains like this(approx 1000 feet high so really hard to call them mountains) and ther area around uit "sunk" in an earthqauke millions of years ago. it is the wintering grounds of 60 percent of the sprig in noth america. it can be seen as a background in many waterfowl paintings offerd by du and others waterfowl artists. it is also the home of "grey lodge" wmp. saw this view on the way home sunday evening and had to grab a pic.

BTW, i don't get to hunt this but we have about 100,00 acres just like this around that can be hunted.

this pick was taken saturady morning, same area, but with the fog the buttes were covered.

hope you guys think it is pretty as i do!

look on a map and find marysville/yuba city california. about 50 miles north east of sacramento.

the catch is finding a place where they will let you hunt. that is when you will know you are a real duck hunter:salude:

there is a club 1 1/2 miles up the road from this place that has identical rice fields and they hardly ever have a duck fly over. 3 man pit goes for $4500 :yes:

grey lodge refuge , at the base of the buttes, is open wed, sat, and sunday and will hold 400 hunters at a time. you have to draw or stand in a sweat line. they get about 3000 apps for the 400 spots each day it is open. i opt for takimg picks and shooting my ducks elsewhere as i have finally become a real cal duck hunter. :thumbsup:

Well that place isn't anywhere around here because we don't have mountains that big, but I do recall the ducks comming into us like that :tounge:

No thank ya, I dont stand in no line for no christmas sell and i will never stand in one to try and hunt somewhere just to shoot a duck. Dont get me wrong I love to hunt but I rather go 30 times have 2 good days than pay anyone that amount of money to hunt. :thumbsup:

Guess i'm the oddball. I have to stand in line to hunt all the time if I want to hunt MO Conservation Refuges. Stand in line, draw pills, hope to draw a low number so I can at least hunt. Hoping to get some land along the Mississippi in the next few years, so I don't have to do this.

I'm in the same boat you are GPS. I live in Calif and I have to wait in line on the freeway to go and wait in line at the refuge. 300 miles one way. I'm just glad I get to get out and hunt. I raise my glass of JD to all of you that get to hunt or even scout new areas on your way home.

tstrong: more folks should listen to what you're saying. As much as I complain about W. Pa., @ least we can get permission from farmers as well as hunt state - maintained gamelands. In other states, it's line up or "pay as you go". Problem is, the latter is the trend of the future. Pay up for expensive leases or line up for refuges is how hunting is going. If one can buy land in the heart of the flyways, that's the way to go. But not everyone can. Good info; a wake up call for anyone who's paying attention. :thumbsup:

you are correct mark. even if you can afford land ion the heart of the flyway does not mean you can find a place to hunt.

the hardest part about hunting in califiornia is actually hunting a place to hunt.

we have game everywhere but we also have people everywhere. most don't hunt and don't think you should either.

when i get a shot at a duck i consider myself every fortunate. when i get one i feel truly accomplished. when i get 3 or 4 i feel like i have hunted a safari equal to any in the world.

i feel bad for my grandkids as i don't think they will have as much opportunity as i do now. :eek:
