new to area

Postby wiscoduck » Sat Oct 19, 2013 10:18 am

Hey guys. I have just recently moved to Medford, OR from Wisconsin. I am a big waterfowler but haven't really gotten my feet wet out here. I am not looking for secret spots or anything but some direction and advice. Maybe even finding a hunting partner would be great. I have spent a lot of my time hunting the Mississippi and have some great experience when it comes to duck hunting. Any help would be great.

Big time waterfowlers from the central flyway don't always go scouting, but when they do, it is on the Internet.

The amusing part is that you think I'm trolling. I am actually quite serious. Internet scouters are almost as pathetic as the folks who give them information.

Dig into the Oregon bird regulations. Find summer lake. I'll be there this Tuesday through Saturday 22nd - 26th. Camped at river camp on the WA. Free camping. Terrible weather but a few birds are around in the sunshine. Gold 07 dodge 2500 with cap. TT with yellow stripe. Snow geese are the main target. Not everyone here is a poor Droll

OP: "I am not looking for secret spots or anything but some direction and advice. Maybe even finding a hunting partner would be great."

JON, looks like you've got a reading comprehension problem; the OP is looking for advice after moving to a new state and maybe even a hunting partner, not information about hunting spots. If you're going to treat people like a$#@%)s why dontcha move to California and troll that forum, you'll fit in well with them; here in Oregon we're friendly to new folks.

The Klamath basin is a big stopping point for birds in the migration; I'm sure there are plenty of residents around, but once the migration starts things can get hot. :welcome: to Oregon

I have watched internet scouters in action for years now partner. The hunting partner ruse is just a way to sucker you into helping them out. If you are so high and mighty, which I can already tell you are, quit bitchin and take the man hunting. You will learn your lesson soon enough. No skin off my back.

Jon, all I can say is SO WHAT! We all have to start off some where. Are you SOOOOO GOOOD :bow: :bow: that you NEVER ask Rob or Jimmy where the birds are when you hunt the wildlife area? or your buddies that you hunt with? I agree not giving specific spots. But good grief cut people some slack.

You can name drop on the internet all you want. Makes you look like an idiot when you are wrong though. Like in this instance... I don't call them. I must not be as plugged in as you.

It's not about being good... it's about hunting... not killing. I would love for people to figure this out... it would make the whole experience much better for them.

We all started somewhere.... but it was before the internet. We earned it.

Thanks to those who have given some pointers it is much appreciated. Just a FYI the whole hunting partner thing wasn't a ruse I seriously would like to hunt with people because as any waterfowler knows half the fun in the field is the jokes and sharing the experience. Not to mention combining of equipment and splitting up the work helps. Thanks again.

No kidding and no worries. This is a good place to find people to hunt with, I'm sure there are more around Medford that just don't get online every week (I take months off of duckhuntingchat at a time). Apparently only our most immature member and one moderator seem to think looking for people to hunt with is "internet scouting" --- ignore them, they don't have anything better to do. Hopefully they'll go away eventually and we'll all be able to ask around for advice and people to hunt with without having to deal with their immature backlash.

Since u live in medford go check out denman wildlife area. Or along the river is going to be your best bet until u get private land. We have lots of private land but still go to denman couple times a month just to give our honey holes a break
