FYI To you all Okies

Postby YJSONLY » Tue Jan 07, 2014 9:25 pm

After driving over 1200 miles from Florida to Oklahoma for a 3.5 day duck and geese hunt we as a group / groups killed 50 + ducks and 14 geese. I seen geese and ducks that I have never seen before besides on tv. Killed ducks that y'all take for granted (mallards) one of which will be going on my wall. I was took there as a +1 on a swap hunt with a buddy of mine after getting into duck hunting the "correct way" I have shot ducks for years but never taught and have found a hunting partner who has hunted ducks 7 or so years. Down here we do not have the numbers and species you guys have mostly just rings necks, buffle heads, woodies, reds and bluebills yes there are a few others but mostly that's it. I say all that to end with this..... You all are some lucky $&%@?¥! And I hope to see that red dirt soon!!!

Phones lets dont even bring up phones.... We left a Florida one in a 400 acre corn field on day 1. Mine did not like the cold and fried the battery! And "the guy" we stayed with never answers his phone / keeps it charged!

I certainly appreciate the waterfowl variety here. I don't know if I could live in "bluebill country", I really like the taste of a good dabbling duck. Glad you enjoyed your stay in the state and hope you get another chance to hunt here.

I for one understand exactly what you mean. I moved her three years ago from SE TX. A mallard was a trophy duck, and I had never seen this bird they call "Canada." I have enjoyed my time and seasons here tremendously. Some of the nicest people I have ever met when discussing birds. On the coast, I was fighting snows, which seldom cooperated, I thrived on teal and gadwall with a wigeon or pintail thrown in. I also fought hundreds of other people on public land, sitting in line at 9p on a Friday night to hunt the morning, and wishing that I could afford the $3K duck lease that got me access to a pond that may only produce a few times a year. I have not taken this time here for granted. I will tell you that. Glad to know someone else is enjoying it as much as I am.

Sooooooooooooooo, you are REALLY one of them damn Texans being thrashed about on the oher thread? :lol3: They still call me a damn yankee even though A) I been here for over 20 years now, and B) Maryland is actually SOUTH of the Manson-Nixon line.

Agree with your sentiments. MD had basically zero public hunting (I was fortunate as I hunted APG). A lot of the born and bred Okies will never comprehend how good they (can I say we yet?) actually have it

You hit the nail on the head about not knowing how good they have it. Don't feel bad about the Yankee comments. Where I'm from, anyone north of I-10, even in TX, was a yankee. :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:
