Hello everyone - another new duck hunter here! Although I have been “stalking” everyone on this board for over a year, I decided it was time to register and finally join the conversation.
I’m in North Central WV, not far from Fairmont and Morgantown. I’m an avid fly fisherman, bow hunter and bird hunter but I have never hunted ducks, basically because I’ve always believed that there are not that many around – but as I’ve gotten older I’ve realized that low numbers is what makes the pursuit even more enjoyable.
As I mentioned before I enjoy bird hunting and own/breed German Shorthaired Pointers but bird numbers are really down in my area and I’m looking for a new challenge. Hopefully I can get my pointers to start water retrieving this summer so that I can take them along. I also have a small johnboat but that’s all with regards to duck hunting.
Thanks to all of you that have been so helpful and willing to share your knowledge on this site with us newcomers. You can be sure that I’ll have plenty of questions during the offseason…and if anyone has an extra seat in their blind next season I’d be happy to tag along and pick up as many pointers as I can. Good luck and many Blessings.
