A few questions for all you Portland area duck hunters.
1. I'm seriously looking at duck boats and I was wondering what configuration would be best down there at Lewis and Clarke NWR. I'm thinking that a Jon boat would be great for hunting areas like Klamath, but not quite stable enough for the swells that one might encounter out on the Columbia. I've usually hunted by walk-in-access and some tips on a God duck boat would be appreciated. Also, tips on a good motor would be equally appreciated.
2. I'm new to the Portland area duck scene...recently moved up here from Eugene. I've hunted years around the Eugene area & Summer Lake (who hasn't right?) all the way over to Warner and down to Klamath. Now I'm looking for info on SI and also Boardman. Anyone got any good tips out there?
3. I'm also looking for some new hunting partners. My guys are all around the Eugene area and are not always free to come up here. Don't get me wrong, I"m happy to hunt all by myself, but definetly enjoy a good day afield with like minded quackheads. I've got a top-notch Lab who's got more than a few years left in him and another top-notch Vizsla who does a bang up job on hunting quail, pheasant and grouse. Takers? Let me know.
4. This is not a question but a statement. This is one Hell of a great site!
I found some really good stuff just goin through the reposts. Good Luck guys.
