I won the gun at a DU dinner. Cost me $10. It was my first "plastic" gun, and I thought it would be good to use in the mud and muck when the fields get a lot of rain. I was right. I didn't like the chokes and bought some SKI and SKII Trulock extended and it really helped it along. Typical newer pump. Not anywhere close to the Model 12 or the Ithaca 37 for smoothness. It does have its purpose and the cost was right.

It does have a problem in that all it wants to shoot is hens and eclipse drakes....

I like the decoys.
Gevelot. Ugliest decoys known to man. Made from some sort of tar paper and wooden sticks. Some of the fields I hunt are flooded mud, and if you have to carry your stuff in, I will do it in 1 trip, so that means carrying the layout, gun, shell bag, and decoys and walking in 2-400 yds. I have a bag of 48 FUDS, and 36 of these Gevelots that I slip into my layout along with all my other stuff (I go in light, usually just bare minimum I need.) I can make a great looking mallard set for an early morning shoot (sunrise -30 to about sunrise +30). Work surprisingly well for a decoy that costs me 8 cents apiece.

Here is a little closer shot of those expensive decoys on another hunt.

(oops, somehow I shot drakes)

I'll bet you can't guess the shell.

Would probably be even simpler in The Pas just to stomp the eggs and avoid the commotion of shooting.

Camo from head to toe, usually all matching, including their purses.
Must be wearing lanyard with full e-bay collection and at least 3 multi-colored very bright duck/goose calls.
Sunglasses preferred.
Latest pro-staff hat
Barrel stickers on their Italian camo semi-auto shotguns.
No smiling in pictures.
Usually 18-25

Very funny and sadly true for many (but not all).

Lets see here.... Today Im wearing a Carhartt jacket with a white Avery hat. On my lanyard I have a blue RNT DC, a Orange Zink ATM, a White Zink XR-2, and a White/Black TG Triple Crown. None of the few bands I have were purchased off of Ebay. I got them all while legally harvesting waterfowl during season. I have started wearing sunglasses because I had a bump in my eye from being outside in the wind and sun to much, thats what Im told anyways. Probably from working on my farm. Oh and I don't have sex with farm animals. Its kinda weird that you bring that up but whatever makes you happy I guess! I don't wear my Pro-Staff hat unless I'm working a show. I shoot a Stoeger Model 3000 that I traded in a Winchester SX3 for because I couldn't deal with all of the issues I was having with it. Oh and Im 19 years old! Im not gonna sit here and tell you guys that their isn't guys out there that think they are the best thing that ever happened to waterfowl hunting. Shaun isn't one of them as well.

Not hacking on you here but 19 doesn't make a prostaffer I want to listen to about duck hunting. I know plenty of kids with good hunting experience. I know a lot more grown men that could teach those same kids a lot.

I relate it to going into a fishing tackle store and a new kid walking up and offering me fishing gear advice. He would be far better off asking if I have something specific I want and any good tips to help him out.

Having done something for a few years doesn't make you a professional or good at promotion.

I am a pro shooter at a local archery shop. Why? The owner forced it down my throat after 12 years of helping him at sportsmans shows, helping teach classes at the shop, and helping with sales when his staff is overloaded with customers. Why did I help and not bother being pre-staff. He is an Marine Vet, and a buddy, plus I enjoy improving the sport. I am an Army vet, and really enjoy interacting and training others to love the sport of archery.

Why did I take pro staff status after 12 years? He is a good buddy and actually got pissed at me about it on a deer hunt. He chewed me out really good about it and said he has been irritated and finally is pissed after 12 years of refusals. I finally said ok, after screwing with him for an hour and really winding him up. :devil: I could care less about the "Pro Shooter" status. The discount is nice and I use it on rare occasions.

If you are in it to enhance the sport, save a few bucks on product, and get the word out about product you believe in then more power to you. If you are in it for the glory, you really need to look somewhere else. Pro-staffing doesn't have any glory to it at all!

When did I talk about glory? When did I talk about knowing everything? Never that's the problem I never said any of these things. I love talking to guys at shows about what they hunt and how they hunt. I like to do something hunting related in the off season. I could do other stuff for sure but I like doing what I do! You've never even met me so don't tell me my lifes story!
