Yea, it was a good line, and i don't care for the old timer reference ( just joking) i have been ducking for about 35 yrs, maybe seroiusly, the last 10, but i still wouldn't consider my self an expert, i do ok, but more important is i am having a ball doing it, etiquette wise, i figure if i wouldn't like it done to me , i wont do it to someone else, but being on these sites could give a newbie some worry, some of these guy's act like this is curing cancer, and if your not doing it right, you shouldnt be out there, i say p*$# on them, go out there, learn and have fun, i have learned a ton from my father who is still very involved today, as a matter of fact, he's going with me on mon, but i learn alot on my own, just by paying attention to whats going on out there, weather conds, time of season etc.i also keep a log, with some general info, where i hunt, time of day, weather cond, stuff like that, as far as the scoters, they are new to me also, up until about 2-3 years ago, i hunted mostly puddlers, when i came down to the bay, it was usually with my dad, but this is the 1st time i have seen them in that close, my dad said he doesn't think they will stay in there too much longer, it's not that normal for them to be in there, hopefully i will get a few before they leave, and i am dying to try sea ducks out on the ocean, i just don't have the equip for it.
I have been down there at least once a week if not more ever since thisseason started, and i havent seen anyone in matawan creek yet, i'm not sure if the mouth of the creek would be such a great spot, with boat traffic, and cloeness to the road and all, but on youth day this year, we took the kids back in that marsh, there is a channel that always has water in it, and they did a ton of shooting, i have heard guy's back in there last year, but not really that often, and as far as old timers, or anyone else having any claim to that spot, thats bull, it's public land, if your willing to get up an extra hour early to get back in there, than as far as i'm concerned, it your spot for that day, anyway, i hope some of my rant has helped, feel free to ask anything anytime. crew :
