Jim, 40yrs old., live in Elkland. (about 20 miles north of Springfield), been duck and goose hunting since i was 15. Was raised in NW Indiana and hunted at Lasalle F&W, Hovey lake, and also on Lake Michigan.
Moved to Missouri in 1998. Started hunting again here when my oldest boy, now 16, wanted to start duck hunting. Have 4 sons i hunt with. 16, 12, 9, and 8. We hunt private ponds close to home. Haven't hunted any public lands yet, but plan to in the future. Not sure where to even go for public hunting.
