I hope you weren't talking about me cause I'm one of the biggest picture poster on the NJ forum, cause I have invited many a member to hunt with me and I'll do the same for you, but like Dgram and JerseyDutch mentioned it is pretty quite round these parts til the season gets going. You'll find the members here are very friendly and we do share, more so than other states. But we are also protective of our spots because of the cyberscouting, so don't take offense.
I'm just up the road in Brigantine and shoot plenty of black ducks and Brant, but can see almost anything on any given day so if you're interested send me a PM and we'll try to make a plan.
So who do you carve with, Jamie? Tony?

I'd love to hook up on some hunts together, I really a just want to steer away from shooting so many damn divers this year! Any puddle duck hunting will do but as I said I'd love to get into some of what u consider exotics (sprigs wigeon mallard teal).
I actually do a lot of carving with jamie hand and dave billig, they have been guiding to become a decoy carver for two years now I would say, I started when I was about 16/17 I'm only running up on 19 now! I know tony but he seems to enjoy some solitude, I'm a big fan of his work though.

I'd love to meet up with both of you guys during the season and swap some hunts!

I would love to learn more about coastal hunting. Being from Iowa, quite honestly it scares me a little...I've vowed to learn how it all works, tides, migrations, big water, backwater marshes etc, but as of right now its completely foreign to me. once i get some spots figured out, i would be willing to swap a hunt. Might take me a few weeks of the season to get into gear though...

Big difference between JC and Denville. I'm in Jefferson which is right next to Rockaway. I'm 10 min from the Rockaway mall. There's a few decent spots up here, you just need to do your homework.
I just moved out of JC a few months ago and am now up in Northern Bergen county. There's a spot just a few min. / miles from you there and if you think Jersey is good, you should check out NY. I'm always looking for folks to go with so let me know if you want to get together and I'd be happy to bring you around to places I know.

Other than that, I try to go up to the ADKs as much as possible since I have a couple friends with houses up there or the Catskills since they are closer. I've only been up to the Finger Lakes area one time, but it was vacation and not hunting - but I loved it.
NY just has way more public land (and allows Sun. hunting) - although its obviously mostly much further spread out than in NJ since its a much bigger state.
