Invite a Military Service Member to your Duck Blind

FYI, Follow the link to the DHC Military forum to post a reply.

http://www.duckhuntingchat.com/viewtopic.php?t=58813&sid=f2f204fc8cebc87e9d7ad7ecdcffd0f1

Here's the place for DHC members to post an invite to host a military service member or veteran for a day in the field. It doesn't have to be limited to just waterfowling! Turkey hunting, Fishing, Sporting events are just a few examples to name a few. A simple home cooked meal away from the hustle and bustle of the base has always been a favorite, especially around the holidays.

If your interested, post the details with your location and what you would like to offer as a Morale Booster to our members in uniform. All offers are greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Hello, Im in the Illinois National Guard and currently deployed to Afghanistan. I was deployed to Iraq June 05-June 06. I'd love to go on a hunt or even trade a hunt when I arrive back home this winter. I have been really wanting to get my Grand Slam, but just started duck hunting and am starting to fall in love with it also. Anyways, just PM me or something. Thanks!

I was in the navy from 02-06. But in 04 went to the sandbox and got hurt. So now I limp around. I'm happy to see people doing this for us VETS. Thank you very much for taking us into your blinds and helping us Vets enjoy the freedom we fought so hard to protect.

Hi All,

I am North of Boston, near the coast and some great salt marshs for waterfowl. I usually hunt with a one or two other lads from Ireland who live around here. We hunt waterfowl in Mass, New Hampshire and Maine; plus grouse and pheasant in New Hampshire and Peasant in Mass and Maine.

We have two hunting boats, one a 17' Duckwaterboat coastal boat (great for seaduck), and we have a smaller 14' jonboat for getting into some smaller tidal areas and lakes.

So if there are any active, reserve. guard, CG guys , etc who want to try either upland or waterfowl, give me a shout, I feel it's the least I can do to show support.

Hi MM,

No I never served in any branch of the US Military, the nearest I got was my ex brother in law, who was a reserve naval Lieutenant. But being out in the ocean in summer and fall/winter, you get to appreciate those who might have to come rescue you someday.

In the cold of January, when most areas have frozen solid and we are hunting from shore blinds, we often are really thankful for the CG 47" patrol boat going out at first light to the rough bar at the mouth of the Merrimac River, they often push the geese off the floating ice rafts and bring them to the shore. Also the mergies and golden eyes will avoid the CG vessel and hug the shore line giving us some good pass shooting.

Around this area, there is only the CG, and USAF base is nearby Portsmouth, New Hampshire, all other Mil in the area are Guard mostly, but I am happy to give any of these guys a chance at some upland or waterfowl. We have the gear, boats, dogs, and even extra shotguns, so all any one needs is a license and some cold weather gear.

You just be EX CG yourself?

Yep, I'm an old coastie. . . I loved it - wished I had of stayed in. . . I'm familiar with the small boats, they used to be 40ft, but now they are some fine vessels. I was rescued a couple of times as a kid by the CG and thought I needed to join. I've even had a mis-hap fishing and needed them after I got out. Always there - always prepared. I hope you get to hook up w/ one of the guys and take 'em hunting. That would be cool. . .

later man. . .

Hey Tader - dang shame you are on the other coast - I could hook ypu up on the eastern side. . . Funny thing - I just hooked up with an old shipmate of mine from 30+ years ago. He was an SA when I was an RM1/2 on CGC Comanche - he became a GMC and stayed in - I wished I could go back in - too dang old now. LOL

Hey guys i am E-4 in USAF stationed in LA but from Arkansas and Mississippi. I am taking leave from Dec.4 to Dec. 20 and would love to go to either missouri, maybe illinois. or AR or MS. I hunt all puclic land got boat decoys all that mess. If anyone is unterested PM me!!!!! and to be honest with you i dont expect anyone from AR or MS to respond. For you guys in the north It is more of a buisness down here and it is amazing how much a military person will get screwed over. I walked up to a farmers door and told ask him very politely if i could hunt said i was military and home for about a week and if i could hunt it for one morning and he said yea if i have 500 dollars i can. yea that made me furious.
