:beer: Hi all, first timer for DHC for postng, but I have read several of the forums in past. Great material/content overall. I have been killing ducks for more than 25 years. My family had a large club back in Californias central valley years ago. I was privileged as a youngster to skip school for a few days at a time and go out hunting with my pops, when the weather cooperated. Through college, I hunted the refuges in northern California but then moved back to the Bay Area. Now, I hunt from a 17 foot aluminum boat powerd by a 70 hp johnson in the Bay Area and delta regions of California. It has a full tig welded cage blind. Pictures to follow, aka the money Pitt. :fingerhead:

Hello fellow water fowlers just joined about 10 mins ago. Names Nate Im from Syracuse NY. Hunted ducks and geese as a kid with my father he stopped going so did I. Just got back into it 2yrs ago because of my buddy he is in a wheel chair but we get out every weekend during the season. I have dragged him many miles lol and we have a blast! I was wondering if any of you folks have ever heard of someone shooting a pair of mallards that came in together both banded one band ending with 24 the other ended with 25 one male one female? A couple people told me I should get em mounted so I am. I shot them in western NY zone.

D Comeaux.... those down in your area are no doubt of the same lineage as me. Acadian, or Arcadian. When the Brits did the big sweep to try and rid eastern Canada of the french, my ancestors fled to New Brunswick, eventually some landed in the northeastern US. Those in your country are the ones the Brits put on the boats, and headed them south.

Recently, I purused through a pile of paperwork my uncle compiled on our family history...seems there was a pile of people with the name Arsenault (or Arceneaux, my Granddad made sure we knew that was the original pronunciation), all came from one man and his many children who immigrated to PEI Canada several hundred years ago.

Know doubt you already know these things......and thanks for the recognition! :smile:

From the great town of Stuttgart, AR. I have hunted most of my life but strictly waterfowl. Love RNT and not just cause I'm a hometown boy. I have tried several others like echo, hobo, Watkins and haydels. Nothing can compete IMO although all are great call makers. Look forward to reading posts, getting feedback, giving feedback, etc. Right now I'm looking forward to the duck calls people sell. But I think about and plan for duck season all year. Waterfowling is full of opinions and looking forward to reading them all.

I dont know why or how but im already hooked on ducks, yeah ill hunt some tree rats ans turkey before deer.. but ducks, ducks ducks! mayeb its because i grew up surfing in ocean city nj, fishing crabbing and clamming. love the water. i have been doing so much research and learning the past months, even been on this site plenty of times before becoming a member. stopping in hunting stores lots of talking. take my hunting test this month on the 17th. I want to thank everyone here that adds helpful information, not only do the forum members read but so do guests like i used to do, excellent site! :beer: :beer: working my way to buying all the gear for next duck season and i can not wait at all im so pumped to get out there!

Hi there :hi:,

I feel a bit out of place here as I have always viewed hunting as being primarily a guys sport. I hope those of you who are somewhat accepting of women wanting to take on this sport, especially with a significant other, can help me out and accept my wanting to learn and interact with others on here :thumbsup:

My name is Patti and my kids school just had a live auction and I won a pure bred lab puppy for a great price. I love labs but I've never hunted. My boyfriend and I decided that we'll take up the sport of hunting so the lab is able to do what he's bred to do. I have lots to learn. The breeder holds private hunting trips for clients and he will be training our pup starting at 5 months old.

I'm unemployed now :sad: and looking for whatever gear I'll need on the cheap if anybody has ideas on free or low cost gear? I'm interested in good websites to visit for beginner hunters, training a dog at home, equipment needed, how to gut pheasants and ducks etc.
I want to learn and I'd love to learn by watching someone and then having someone coach me. I in the Twin Cities area in MN and I'm looking forward to :sniper: my meat to reduce the cost of going to the grocery store :thumbsup:

Hi everyone im Brett I live in Michigan and hunt a little state game area that is flooded timbers, and flooded corn fields with some crop standing. Last year I took a trip to north Dakota with some of my hunting buddies and we killed over 200 birds in 6 hunts, unguided! ive been duck hunting for bout 4 years (since I was 15) and fell in love. as far as gear is concerned I wear cabelas waders, blow nothing other than zink calls. I have a golden lab retriever, and shoot a benelli (looking to upgrade to another) as far as boat goes. 14 ft flat bottom with a 13hp mud buddy with a chainsaw wench so I can get wherever the ducks are! :thumbsup:

Hi All
Been shooting trap for the past 4 years (my first shotgun sport) but been shooting bow, long rifles and pistols since a kid (now 39yrs). Though I enjoy shooting frequently I've never been a big hunter. Recently I've been talking with a few of my buddies who are avid hunters and they want me to start going bird/waterfowl hunting with them. Never hurts for the boys to get away from the old ladies for a few nights over some whiskey and beers. So my main reason for joining is to read up on what's what in the equipment end of things as I'll need a full gear setup from gun (looking for a 3.5" Semi) to clothes. I also want to get a better understanding of how to hunt the different seasonal birds and what techniques are best. I'll for sure be spending more time reading than posting until I get a little expertise under my belt. Great forum you have here, thanks for making it available to everyone to learn from.
Cheers,
John

Hey all. Looks like a good group of knowledgeable hunters, will be picking some brains and hopefully be adding some wisdom? hehe gained in my 30+ yrs of waterfowling. I try to be versatile , hunt beaver ponds, small streams, inland lakes and the bay of GreenBay Wi. I m blessed to have extended family in farming so I do some field hunting for ducks and geese, though I prefer, to hunt water. Boats include 10' jonboat, 18' canoe, 16' deep v, and hopefully a layout soon. My current pup is a 9month old Chessie that is on her way to greatness!hehe, does show great promise though and is responding well to the training to this point. My wish list of future hunts is western Minn, SD, and Saskatchewan. I have two sons that are very busy in fall but are finding some ways to get out there with me, hopefully that trend continues.

My name is Taylor, I have been hunting since I was about 11 (now 21). I grew up in Butte, Montana and just moved to Los Angeles to go school and have had a hard time being successful. I'm open to meet new people and find new hunting buddies, also if anyone has some pointers on where I could go to find some birds I would greatly appreciate any help. My go to gun is my baby, my 12 gauge remmington 887.

My name is Zach, I am originally from Kansas but i left for the military about 3 years ago and have been in Wa ever since. I haven't really had much time to hunt while being in the military so i am excited to head back Oklahoma where I will permanently reside very soon. I have hunted quail, pheasant, dove, and deer most of my life but i am new to duck hunting. I got the chance to duck hunt with a good buddy of mine a few times last season and of coarse I wasn't able to get enough. The wife and I will be adding a new member to the family a few weeks after I return home (new pup!!!) I am pleased to be here and I have already learned a lot of good stuff just from the few times iv been on the website. :hi:
