Then I would look for some guys to hunt with and then you can buy your gear slowly.
The season is over so you have time to get read for the next season. :beer:

If you ever travel down to Evansville, let me know and I'll give you some decoys to get you started if your serious.

I didn't think about it, but if you're down this way and want to go duck hunting a couple of times before you invest to much into it, let me know and we'll get you out on a couple of hunts.

if your serious about wanting to get into duckhunting then Ive got a dozen GHG mallard hot buys that id love to give to a young guy starting out. Ive also got some waders you could have if you can fit in them. Do you have a place to hunt or are you going to try public land?

There are some excellent opportunities to hunt public land near you. Tri-County FWA for instance. And they offer jump-shooting sites. Which means you don't need a boat. All you need is a handful of decoys, a bucket to sit on, your gun/shells, license/stamps, camoflauge and a ride to the property.

But it would be wisest to hunt with an experienced waterfowler a few times and then venture out on your own.

Careful though, this sport is incredibly addicting. Like to the point that you are browsing hunting forums 5 months before the season starts....... I've already been rearranging decoys, cleaning the boat, motor maintenance and planning this falls hunts. It's ridiculous.
