Hey everybody, I'm Rob. Currently living in Rolla, MO, originally from IL, south of St. Louis.
I've been hunting ducks for roughly 15 years-- freelance and draw-in public land in Illinois, some private land, a few hunts at a St. Charles club (don't judge), currently hunting a blind with my dad at Prairie du Rocher, IL when I can find the time to drive back. Done a few draw-in hunts in MO, and would like to do a bit more of it if I find time and gas money (Rolla is 2 hours from everything, apparently).
I've shot more wood ducks than anything else (except maybe teal), and never scoff at "others," as I've heard some people call birds that aren't greenheads. I still like those fat & slow birds, but I'm generally not in a position to be picky. Going to try hunting from a kayak this year, just to see where it can take me- worked alright for teal season, and hauls about a dozen mallard floaters.
Always looking for like-minded people to hunt with. Good luck this season.
