A buddy pointed me to this thread cause he knew I was out that day. I was on point judith on or near that day. I was out friday and saturday. Friday we were out on a buddies lobster boat out to do some cod fishing and we saw two sea-duck hunters. One was on the wall heading out into open water, and the other hunting group was near the outside can on the far side of the wall/jetty. Both guys were shooting, and dropping birds, looked like a good hunt for both parties. My boy got sea-sick on the way out so we turned around and anchored just to check things out, maybe 1/2 mile away from the outside hunting party. The next day we set out to sea-duck hunt the outside wall on the open-water side. Pretty rough day, didn't see another hunter nor hear one. I'm not terribly familiar with the area, but I have been told there are ponds on either side of point judith. Either way we didn't see or hear anyone on the while we hunted. We ran into some guys, three, with a chessie heading out from what looked like a lunch break around 1100hrs. They had a couple nice canadians but that was it from what we saw. From what you mention in your experiences, hell, I'd report them if they leveled a gun at you, theres no need for "sportsmen" to even think of acting such a way. As for the poor hunting practices, theres a difference in ignorance and stupidity, maybe give em your .02 politely and make them better hunters. I know if I was hunting anything anywhere, and someone came up to correct me with sound advice that was in all of our interests, I'd listen and then thank him. Just me though.
