If you like I'll stand at attention and yell "Greenbo Alabama, Drill Sergeant!"

I'll leave the grammatical incompetence in your comprehension of the word 'you're' alone as a courtesy.


And we'll leave your grammatical incompetence of terming a contraction "you're" a single "word" alone...
As a courtesy.

Where is this article. I didn't see it?
I went to school in Arkansas and the way they talk about their hunting being soooo superior I can't figure out why they'd drive all the way to western Oklahoma to duck hunt?

Cuz it's Fayetteville area and they don't have ducks in the hills like down in the delta.

Ducks have wings and fly around from state to state. Now how do you know your %#@$ ducks weren't hatched in Canada?
Your ducks, their ducks, my ducks...ridiculous.

Unfortunately an NWR a little ways from the border, which is hunted by 90%+ AR, has given them a bad name. They have basically turned it into the OK version of Bayou Meto. I have encountered a few normal ones there but it always amazes me at how the vast majority of them behave.
I can sorta understand them hunting there since it's a decent drive from Ft. Smith, but the ones I come across much farther west is kinda baffling. Not judging them or labeling them, just confuses me as to why one would drive that far from AR.
We have more than our share of resident idiots here, I will readily admit that, but at the NWR I previously mentioned, the amount/% of idiots from AR really makes them look bad. I have been to some of the most infested resident OK yahoo areas, and only one of them could even possibly compare.
My point is, I can see where people are coming from when they make generalizations about this, it's not purely from the state on the license plate. Not saying that it's ok to label all of them, but our eastern neighbor does have a reputation/tendancy for yahoos, and most people I have hunted with are a little leery/cautious when they first see an AR plate, until they see how they behave. Just like the Iowa hunters at Kaw who have earned the reputation they have.


I agree with the majority of your sentiments shoveler, I think the age of a lot of the boys down there has a lot to do with it and quite a few over privileged young fellas hunt that area. I know when I was in school my parents would've smacked me if I spent money on the OOS license when I had opportunities for hunting close to home. And there was no way in he!! you would have seen me driving a jacked up chevy with my own boat at that age either. Not saying all those younger ones are bad apples bc i know a few that are stand up guys but there a quite a few that I'd like to pull the plug from "their" boat as well. Those are the guys that give us all a bad name regardless of one's state of residence.

I've seen carbon copies of these young "duck crews" in every state I've hunted and they are no worse in one state than the other. There are more of them in certain areas, which can usually be attributed to the proximity of a large university, which makes certain lakes and rivers undesirable for the average joe who enjoys a leisurely hunt.

I still hunt near this NWR, and I can still enjoy myself, but it has taken time to find areas that are unencumbered by the mobs. I don't duck hunt because it's easy, I do it for the challenge. The way I see it, people are one more hurdle hunters in our era have to deal with and make those good days all the sweeter. I guess if it wasn't for complaining us hunters would have a heck of a lot less things to talk about: weather, wind, migration, water levels, decoys, calls, boats, aaaaannnndddd too many people. Heck this website probably wouldn't exist if it weren't for belly aching. Good luck, make the most out of these last two weeks!

I don't blame him, half of them don't even work properly.


This is true! Between ducking with DW and visiting friends in Tulsa about once a month I'm about to enroll in PikePass so I can just blast through that friggin toll station on 412! That change machine is not real reliable at 0-dark-thirty!


From my time at the U of A, I usually travelled free on that turnpike because their pike pass system on it hardly worked. When I used the Cimarron, Turner, Creek, or Muskogee turnpike, it worked.

Im so sick of hearing y'all whine about this. As long as they are legal what difference does it make. The very principle of wildlife management is clearly stated in the North American Wildlife Conservation Model. The Public Trust Doctrine is a legal principle derived from English Common Law. The essence of the doctrine is that the waters of the state are a public resource owned by and available to all citizens equally for the purposes of navigation, conducting commerce, fishing, recreation and similar uses and that this trust is not invalidated by private ownership of the underlying land. IT IS PUBLIC LAND! It doesn't matter if your from Ok, Tx, Ar, hell Ak. Its just as much theirs as it is yours.
