Well since qd has been so good to me, I have decided to sell my honey hole. I have about 200 acres prime swamp ground, with about 90 acres of mature pin oaks on it. Looking to sell, just give me a hollar, a considerable down payment will hold it for ya.
I would think that you would just donate it to the MDC and let them make it another QD area. That way we would all get to hunt it dozens of times every year.
Well, I considered that. I contacted MDC, after they finally got back with me, we discussed doing just that. MDC told me that at this time they could not add another area to qd, since it was still a pilot program and all. I told them that I could not donate my prime honey hole without the qd provision. Their counter offer was for me to just pound sand, that they will not bend to any pressure what so ever. They did however thank me for my offer and to continue to hunt and fish in MO, keep the MDC revenues up.
Oh well until 2015................
Well I will tell you how we can remedy this situation. You donate the land to me and I will turn around and instantly (in government terms this means after using it myself for a few years) donate it to the MDC. You see I have an inside connection that is high up in the QD management dept. You've heard that I have had a QD for every day this year haven't you? Anyway, I will pull the necessary strings to make sure that this land is put into the QD system right away and I, oops
, I mean the new manager of the area, will see to it that it is one of the premier waterfowl areas in the country where the intrest of the common man and everyday hunter is of utmost importance and everyone's input will be listened to and implemented for the improvement of the area to create a waterfowler's utopia.
Well, I have taken my honey hole off of the market. Although you have given me a great idea. I have never met you, but I believe we could get along. So we will just turn this into a private club, you can be my area manager, we will conduct our own quick draws.I think we can hunt four blinds without too much of a problem, so 20 people daily, make that 16, you and I have to have our spots. Now we can run over to the slough, with our qd's in hand, to see if we can get a top 10 spot. If we get a spot to our liking, we hunt the slough and let our place rest, if not we go back have breakfast and hunt the honey hole.
Now everyone knows this is all possible, cause waterfowlers get from the 1st of November through the end of January off from work (with pay of course) to be able to pursue our passion. Oh yea we will probably want to just hunt the slough on weekends, make the best of our daily qd's.
