There's nothing wrong with giving someone a couple pointers. Nothing is more depressing than waking up early, burning a tank of gas, and arriving at a new lake only to come home without firing a shot. That's not a way to keep new hunters interested.

My question is where in my original post did I say anything about giving specific details? Had you had taken time to read what I wrote you would've saved yourself a lot of typing.
I'll give you a little background on my hunting cred to maybe help you calm down and take a step back. Well to be honest I have none because I wasn't fortunate like you and grew up in a household where my parents didn't care what my interests were. They chose them for me based on how it fit in to each's money chasing schedule. My start into duckhunting was kind of unintentional actually. I had got a lab during the spring time of 2007 and after a few months the desire to hunt came back to me so I figured "hell might as well now since I already got the dog.". I came on here in 2008 not knowing a single iota about any aspect of waterfowling and used this website as merely a tool to give me a starting point. '08's season was pretty bad to say the least. I didn't get one limit and was too scared to call. With the help of a good friend I met off here and a lot of tips here and there from other members last season I got a few limits and even called a few birds in. Do see anything in there where people gave me specific spots etc.? Hell, most of them don't even live in the same state.
So do you see how a lot of people come on here soley looking for a starting point now that maybe through whatever circumstances they didn't get into hunting until later in life?
I get the feeling you're kind of a troll based on your last few posts. Your response to what I typed above will give me all the indication I need.

Kacey ... this thread is nearly 3 years old.
But ... I will be taking the opportunity to point out that TRUE American heritage in duck hunting is MARKET hunting, it had little - nothing to do with building friendships and sportsmanship. While obviously this has changed, I guarantee in days past ... people who did this for a living didn't share information.
