Hey, well maybe not all of us are that familiar with online duck scouting to start with. I do plan on scouting for this next upcoming year, and anyone else whos new to the North Houston area.....hit me up with a PM, it would be great to find some guys to scout with!!!! Didn't quite know everyone on this forum was so protective....but hey I'm ready to hunt, I hope some of the guys that love to hate on the "new to tx thread" love duck hunting as much as I do...cause after all, thats why I joined this forum.

Lol y'all take it way too seriously. There's too many comments complaining about lake naming and Internet scouting. If folks wanna give up their spots or lakes who cares, let em. It's not like there's only a few good spots down here.

Coming from the guy with 5 posts..........guarantee 99% of all posts asking for spots are from people that joined that day and then never return. It's a forum not a hey tell me where to hunt because I don't want to go look for birds website.

Don't see how my 5 posts have anything to do with it, but ok. Just stating an observation/opinion Mr. Moderator.

It's sort of like an immigrant coming to another country and then complaining about how the country is run after being there the first week. They then comment about the people that are actually contributing to the forum aside from hey where can I hunt because they are busting the balls of the "immigrant" who wants to complain when they have done nothing or contributed anything.

So don't be a person who has contributed nothing to this forum, only to criticize how people who do prefer to not have places posted because they enjoy them.

Who cares about how long I've been around, which is longer than a week by the way. I didn't know you had to be a member for so long before you could post an opinion my bad. As far as contributing goes, I contribute plenty of hours and ideas and helping new folks get started outside of this chat forum. And the immigration analogy is just plain ignorant lol.

Its not just because you're new that whistlin is saying that. What you said is simply wrong. 'Who cares if they lake name or give up all their spots?' All the other people that hunt those spots do. Just because one person doesn't care if a spot gets overloaded with jr commanders doesn't mean all the other people that put in the time to find that spot won't care. It's not about being selfish, it's about having respect for your fellow sportsman.

If people new to this forum would spend some time actually reading some posts before making their own, they would know not to ask about hunting spots... It amazes me how lazy duck hunters are getting in general!!

FYI TallTexan... There are some great guys on this forum!! Spend some time here and get to know a few, the doors will open and hunt invites will come... Mouthing off gets you NOWHERE :fingerpt: !!

Ok truce, life's too short to argue.

On a side note, I'm redoing a little 14 ft Jon this summer for a fishing/duck hunting boat. I've got her all patched up and a good base paint on. I'm about to reinforce the transom to be able to throw a small outboard on. I was wondering if any of y'all have ever worked on boats, and what would be best for doing this (wood, steel, aluminum, etc). I have some pretty light weight 1x3 hollow steel I was thinking about using bc I figured it would last longer than the wood. Thoughts?
