Went to the club Sun. just to watch the ducks. Two youth hunters were having a good hunt in the pit behind me. Saw a lot of ducks, one group of greenwings had about 50 in it. No mojo and no calling and the ducks were still coming into the dekes. Makes me wonder.....???

i dont use a mojo of anytype i made a bouncer and a feeder,,,, feeder is a decoy with a modified head using a fish bucket bubbler,the hose out the bill., gives good motion and action.
the bouncer is atipper with a line and a quiver magnet for extra action.

Another MO hunter

Postby mlangenh » Mon Oct 23, 2006 10:26 pm

Hello, everyone. My name is Matthew Langenhorst and I'm 20 years old. I am originally from St. Charles, but am currently enrolled at Westminster College, so I hunt Eagle Bluffs a lot. I have been duck hunting for 5 seasons now, and each one gets better as they go. I am a member of Delta Waterfowl, and now this forum. My newest accomplishment in waterfowl hunting was shooting a double-banded goose in early season this year. :thumbsup: And I'm excited for next weekend to get here.

Hello all,
Rex and Rose here. We are getting ready for Rose's first season. I was always talking about the few hunts I went on in South East Mo. (Duck Creek, Ten mile pond) So she asks me to take her. We've been getting our gear ready for a couple of months now. We live near Lebanon Mo. at Bennett Spring. We will be able to hunt middle and south zones and are planning on a trip to Duck creek and Ten mile pond in Dec. She is almost excited as I am.

I'm from outside Jeff City and new to this site and new to waterfowl hunting.

I've been hunting for 25 years and actually had my first bow killed deer before I killed one with a gun. But I just started waterfowl hunting at the end of last year's season and it seriously 'got into my blood' as they say.

After a long off season waiting, buying equipment(including a new gun), practicing my calling, and training my new lab puppy(like I said, it's in my blood), to say that I'm anxious would be a serious understatement.

Last year I didn't start hunting until the end of December and I missed most of the good hunting. The few times I went we never really even decoyed any birds, but it was still a good time. So I'm REALLY looking forward to fresh ducks and an opening weekend. Only problem is that it's so dry here in central MO that we're not seeing many ducks yet.

I hope to learn a lot from you good men(and women) on this site.

Good Luck to All

I just bought an Xtrema 2 for an all purpose gun. Used it during dove season and it cycled the light loads perfectly. I like it a LOT, unfortunately they aren't cheap. Through lots of shooting during dove season and patterning 3" and 3-1/2" I haven't had even a hint of a sore shoulder. I think the KO system works great in these things.

Live just south of Warrensburg. New to this site but have been hunting for about 8 years (ever since I moved back to the states). Usually hunt locally within an hour drive from the house. Usually don't do too bad.

H20fwlkillr, not too far at all. Do you breed or train any of the dogs on your site or are the two pictured your only ones? Any tornados lately?

I will be breeding the two I have this fall. I do train my own dogs and sometimes take on a dog to every now and then. I mostly just help another trainer outside of Odessa. I find training is much more enjoyable when working with someone.

The twister that hit R&D Flatwork S of Holden, went across the back of my property and took out 2 of my duck blinds. Luckily that was all of my damage.

Hey all, Rose and I just checking in for this year. Rose really enjoyed our duck hunting last year and is looking foreward to this year. We have another dozen decoys and some new tricks to try and lure more ducks with in shooting range. Thanks to all the more experienced hunters that shared tips and tricks with us around the fire in the campgrounds at Schell Oscage, Otter slew, and Duck creek.
Good luck all,
Rex&Rose
