Looking for duck-hunting partners and places to hunt

Postby Ryan from NorCal » Thu Jun 07, 2012 7:55 pm

Hi there,

My name's Ryan. I just moved to Indiananapolis from California. A life-long duck and goose hunter, I'm looking for some nice Hoosiers to help me get into the swing of things out here.

I've got all the gear minus a duck boat (I sold mine in the move). I can call, and I've got a well-trained chocolate lab. A hard worker, I actually enjoy hauling heavy gear, slogging through mud and breaking ice. I'm respectful and polite to landowners and would never, ever litter -- that includes discarded shell casings. I believe in keeping good spots secret, despise sky-busting and believe that politeness and courtesy should still apply among fellow hunters -- yes, even on public land.

I'm also a great game chef who takes pride in making even the funkiest duck and goose taste amazing. You haven't lived until you've tried my corned honker, my pulled goose sandwiches, my smoked whole canvasback or my mallard meatballs. I even have a recipe for spoonie chili so good you'd pay for it at a restaurant.

No joke.

So shoot me note if I sound like the kind of guy you wouldn't mind shivering with in a blind, could use as an assistant guide or who you wouldn't mind having on your property to get rid of those dang birds that eat your silage and crap everywhere.

Hope to hear from you soon.

I hunt a lot of public land for ducks and do alright you need to go in.gov/dnr and go to where to hunt that should help you out. You have camp atterbury by you. I have done some good up there but you have to watch it some people shoot for the moon up there.

I just moved to the area myself. I have been upland hunting since I was a kid and this past year got in to waterfowl hunting. I have all my own gear and am always interested in checking out new spots. I have been looking at the public land and marsh areas and am planning to visit some of those this year. Throwing around the idea of even getting a jon for fishing/hunting. If you ever want to check out some of the draws I am usually up for it. Just give me a heads up and I will try and make it happen.

Just take what other hunters there tell you with a grain of salt.

yeah early season my suck this year.... the corn crop i normally hunt hasn't even been cut yet and don't even know if it will be cut in time. I may have a hard early season. So I guess i am going to try my late season spot and see if it pays off this year. It's really sad how this summer has been.

Where do you hunt in MO? I recently lived in the Lou and used to go to Columbia Bottoms and some of the lakes with group of friends on the IL side. Good times!

I just moved to Indy this past summer from NW Indiana. I hope to make some trips back up that way to hunt with my buddies up there, and vice-versa, but I will hopefully be looking to get out around here some.
