How many of you hunt

Postby H20fwlkillr » Mon Jul 24, 2006 10:12 am

land that you own? It seems that most people hunt public land. I bought some land and built a 1.5 acre pond to hunt. I am in the process right now of expanding it out to 4 acres. There will be 1.33 acres of water 18"-24" deep.

I don't hunt any ducks or geese on land I own. However, I hunt deer, turkey, coyotes, bobcat, foxes and little critters on family owned land. I do hunt more on private land than public when it comes to waterfowl, though.

Well then H2O do you need a decoy hauler? LOL If so I am willing to apply. Sounds like you're gonna have a good set-up

Well I hunt 98% of the time on land my family owns. The only time I hunt public land is if I get drawn for a reservation or someone invites me to go with them on their reservation.
If they weren’t meant to be eaten, then why are they made of meat?

I got plenty of room. I have 2 blinds on the pond.... one is 4' x 7' and the other is an earthen blind that measures 8' x 14' inside. I can easily shoot 8 persons in it. I don't hual my dekes anymore. I leave them out all season. I like hunting this pond so well, I built a house about 200 yards away so I don't have to get up so early. OK, I really built the house because my wife said if I could build the pond, I could build her a house. It is nice though to be able to get up and be set-up and hunting in 20 min.

If you go to the hunting section here http://www.geocities.com/h20fwlkillr/ on my website, you can see my blinds.

I duck hunt on mostly public land since we sold one of the farms. I deer hunt on my wife's family farm only. High powred rifles and trigger happy hunters on public land frighten me.

Looks like you have a pretty nice setup.

Looks like a pretty cool little farm you got there H20. You train at all with the Big Muddy NAVHDA chapter out that way?

I barely have time to train at home, much less run trials. I hope at some point to be able to though.
I wish early goose season would hurry up and get here. I've had 14 giant canadas sitting on my big pond for a week now. My dogs don't understand why I don't go shoot them.
