Heres some helpful advice for those just starting out: STOP! Don't go thru all the time, money, manhours,more money, boats, motors, trailers,4 wheelers,decoys,duck calls,more money,trucks, duckblinds, leases,shotguns,waders,dogs,food for the dog,dog to the vet,more money,licenses,stamps,mojos,jerkducks,spinners,recorders,amplifiers,rags,stakes,sticks,sleds,carts,
and EVERYTHING else in between!! Let the older,wiser,seasoned veterans go thru this so you newer watefowlers don't have to.
Waterfowling is a very expensive hobby and sport so get your wallet out and start getting all the items mentioned. If you ever get to a point that you have everything you need, call me, I have a second list to shop for. It takes alot to hunt but the fun and excitement will last a lifetime! Good Luck!
