i absolutely love duck hunting. unfortunately, the only opportunities i have is when i take a trip. i have been to arkansas a few times and this year i went to maryland and absolutely loved it (mainly for the geese). the more i waterfowl hunt, the more i want to. i would like to start trying to create some local opportunities so i can do it more often. i am pretty overwhelmed with how to get started though. i know i will need a bunch of gear, etc. but i don't really know everything i will need and more importantly where i can go locally (in SC). i have been 1 time @ Santee and only saw 1 canvasback hen. any suggestions, tips, advice, gear recommendations, etc. anyone has would be a huge help to me.
i hate being the new guy trying to get involved with something like this....thanks in advance.
