My name is Josh Paradiso from Central NY. I just recently moved to Beaverton, OR and decided i would join this forum so i could potentially meet new hunters on the west coast. Like i said, im new, so i have no hunting partners, no spots, no information on whats good and whats not, as far as areas. Im looking for a helping hand to show me the ropes. Hunting partner would be great, but i would settle for any information in general. Im a pro-staff member for an outfitter back east, and am no dummy to the sport of duck hunting. On average back home we harvest anywhere from 300-400 ducks in the fall. I admire the different species of puddle ducks you guys have here, and how common it is to see them, mostly the pintail. Numbers isnt a huge concern for me, it never has been. Im looking for a guy or guys to show me a good time here in Oregon, because i will be settling here for good. Below i have attached some pictures of previous success ive had. I do mostly field hunting in NY. Anywhere from flooded corn, to soybean fields. I stumbled upon the Tualatin Wildlife Area not to long ago and was super impressed by the amount of different species i saw. Its incredible to me mostly because 90 percent of the ducks i shoot in NY are mallards, although we have great success with the divers when the weather cooperates. Yall know how that is! I posted this on the pic section because i figured it would be the most popular....who doesnt like pictures of dead ducks?? My email is email@example.com
if any of you want to reach out and be a helping hand!
