Yeah good idea... Like how long you have been hunting, where you hunt them, how you hunt them ducks(fields, sloughs, timber, rice, etc), dog, type of decoys, guns, calls, hunting buddies, boat, vehicle, memberships to conservation orgs, etc, etc... the sky is the limit :thumbsup:

For an example example I'll do my intro for ya all.
My name is Alan and I have been hunting waterfowl since age 9, which is 36 years of hunting now. I hunt MN and MB and occasionally SD, and have also hunted ND and SK. I hunt both ducks and geese, and both field and water for them both. And I hunt both puddle (sloughs)and divers(lakes), and both CA and S&Bs. I got a GR named Casey who is 9 years old now. I shoot a Win SX2 and use G&H smags for the ducks and Bigfoots for CA geese and custom socks for S&Bs. I drive a Chevy S-10 4x4 which hauls my 14' boat and 25hp motor or the 5x8 enclosed trailer for field hunting. I am an active member of Delta Waterfowl, DU US, DU CA, and MNWA being I have been on their local coommittees for the last 10+ years (except DU CA).

Well, there you go, so now do not be bashful, post up an intro-even the guys that have been here a while should do so so we can get to know one another a bit better. :smile:

My name is Duncan. I am from Oklahoma. I hunt all over the state and plan to make a trip to North Dakota this year to duck hunt and South Dakota to pheasant hunt. I did shoot a Remington 870 Express Supermagnum, and just bought a Winchester Super X2 Super Mag. My retriever is my set of cabelas ultimate waders. I moderate the gear, shotgun, target shooting, and oklahoma flyway forum.

Well I'm one of the longest members here, but I'll reintroduce myself.

My name (what a shocker by the screen name) is Chris Hustad, and I currently reside in Bismarck, ND. I've lived in ND my whole life and God help me if I ever leave. I've been hunting since I can remember, and I'm currently 26 years young. I hunt waterfowl around 40 days/year, and I have a VERY understanding wife. I'm mostly a goose hunter by heart, and I normally hunt snows/blues or Canadas.

I'm a diehard decoyer, and if it doesn't decoy I may not hunt. :)

Welcome.

Just joined today. Stumbled on this site while in search of info & advice. I live in Murfreesboro, TN and have just gotten serious about waterfowl hunting over the last couple of years. Before that I was into big game & upland birds. Have all the equipment in the world, just bought a new BPS 10 in February. I used to belong to a a bowhunting site that seems similar to this one and it was a great resource for information. I'm hoping this one will provide the same for my new passion.

Here it is.... Stay on the west side, Seattle area. Been here for 4 years then moving on. Try to hunt the home state of Iowa every year when time or deployments permit. Hunt everything that walks crawls or flies. Always looking for new partners to shoot with in the off season and hunt with during the season.

Hi my name is Jim Wenzbauer. I live and hunt in southeast Nebraska. I hunt mostly ducks but like to shoot geese as well. This coming season will be my 20th year of duck hunting.

I would like to get out of Nebraska and do some duck hunting. If anyone has some info on public or private ground in ND or SD let me know. :salude:

Posting up for the new year :yes:

My name is Bryan. I live in NW AR and have a very understanding wife. sevral childern, (four of wich were in a blind with me on one of my better hunts last year). I have a chocolate lab which was trained as an upland bird dog but is a natural in a blind. I have two boats .... I should say one flatbottom, as understanding as my wife is she will not let me camo the family ski :help: . Needless to say I don't use it often.

I hunt the rivers in AR and OK mostly. I jump hunt when I am short on time. Have a large need to hunt in Wyoming again. Hunted ducks up there in the 90's and it was great.

Ok, I'll jump in here. Hello, my name is Dave, and I'm a Duckaholic

("hello dave")

I have been hooked on duck hunting my hole life. Started going to the blind with my Dad when I was 5. Killed my first duck when I was 7. That was 32 years ago. Have not missed a season since. I hunt all over Arkansas, and Oklahoma, from the rivers to flooded fields to flooded timber. Also have hunted ND, KS. TX, & LA. "Have gun will travel."

I'm married, have 2 boys (6 & 2), and a yellow lab, HR Captain Rhett of Stuttgart.

My wife's favorite comment about me is, "He's a pretty good husband till duck season rolls around, then he's not worth a S***." :mrgreen:

InTheDecoys, I agree. I feel like I'm getting in on the ground floor of what's going to be a big waterfowl site.

Howdy :getdown: , My name is Ty i live in northern IN, some say im obsessed with duck/goose hunting i think i like goose (canada) most but ducks are fun to. We really have a lot of geese around here and the farmers hate them so i hunt in the cow pasture with a pond and the cows make great decoys. :thumbsup: I like to hunt in ND cause the people are so friendly (ducks or no ducks) I found this site thru Nodakoutdoors. I have to say the only kind of hunter i cant stand is a sky buster :withstupid:
leave it better than you found it!!!

Just found this site a couple of days ago through the Avery website...thanks Mallyard. This is a great looking site that I will surely pass on to my buddies. Anyway, I'm 32 years old, from Missouri and have hunted ducks (and geese) since I was 6 years old. I've hunted some great places the last several years but nothing beats "gettin' em" close to home. I've made a lot of friends and memories in the blind but my biggest thrill to date was taking my 5 year old son Lane on his first dove hunt last September. With my job, I get to travel around to waterfowl and outdoor shows alot...so, hopefully I'll get to meet some of you'll on the road. Again, congratulations on a great site!

Postby Brett Neffendorf » Sun Jun 27, 2004 9:58 pm

Hi I am new here as well.

My name is Brett Neffendorf, I am 17 years old and going into my senior year of high school. I am a football player (QB) and baseball player (P,1st) . I am currently just moving to Bend, OR (central , OR area) and am leaving some great duck and goose hunting behind me. I am having to move because of my dads job which is going to be in Central OR. Currently I dont know of a whole lot of duck and goose hunting in Bend, OR but hopefully I can find some.

This past season I shot around 60ish ducks+geese. I currently use a browning BPS and blow Double G goose calls and Echo Duck calls.

Here is a link to some of my hunting picutres from past hunts.

Postby falco » Tue Jul 06, 2004 2:24 am

Hi all,

My name is Leonidas Mitsialis, I live in Athens Greece, 35 years old, father of 2 boys (4 & 2). I 've been hunting waterfowl for 3 years, before that it was mostly small upland game for me, but now the marsh gets my full attention. Next week there'll be a new addition to the family, a 9 weeks old English Springer Spaniel, which I hope I can turn into a great water dog.

By the way, great site. If any one has any Greek friends, send them to our site as well, www.e-artemis.gr.

Hey guys....my names Joe. I live in southwest Michigan and I'm 15. I do a lot of goose hunting and haven't done a whole lot of duck hunting at all. Want to get into it more, just don't seem to have all of the great places to go. I do most all of my hunting with my dad. We have a 98' Chevy pickup that gets stuck no matter where you go. Definetly need to get a 4x4 next time. We both shoot Mossberg 500s. Nothin too fancy, but it gets the job done. We hunt over a bunch of silo's and shells.....haven't broken down and gotten into the fb's yet. We don't use any fnacy calls....just some flutes and a call.

Hope to get into some good conversations with you guys and learn a lot of stuff.
No, I'm not a good shot, but I shoot often.
