I tend to fish too, but for the mostpart i explore new hunting areas and use a lot of time scounting, i go out and i pratice with my duck call and try to see how the ducks react to it. i go through all of my equipment, see if the decoys are broke and count how many of them who are ready for "action".. and of course a lot of trips to the shooting range! Planning new stragedies on how to improve my hunting and the results of it..

For me its not just a kill or equipment you use.. its tool and tools can be used in more than one way and im constantly dealing with ways to improve and better the result.. everytime i hunt and it doesnt go the way i want to i grow in experience
, am i the only one thinking like that, and what do you guys do in the off season :D?


Story of my duck hunting life.........damn I hate the offseason. :mad:

Does anybody have any ideas of how to make money. Because legally I can't get a real job.

I definately know what you mean. I try to call for atleast once a day. I also spend time working with my dog and going through my gear. This year i will be scouting a lot more, now that I can hunt refuges. I also try to do a lot of fishing and other hunting during the off season.
