Hi, I am Lisa, I am 13 years old. I live near San Francisco CA. I LOVE duck hunting with my dad. I hunt at every opportunity and almost every weekend. I think I have gotten really good now at duck hunting. I can almost run thought the mud and water, I am the fastest one walking out to our blinds despite the fact that I am carrying almost 50 lbs about a mile there and back. I now am a great caller and have been updating my lanyard constantly. I made a goal this last season to get a limit (7), get a drake mallard, drake spoony, drake wigeon, and drake gadwall. I have succeeded in all, and now the season is almost over. :sad: I have shot some snipe, geese, and coots this year also. I don't hunt any big game yet, my dad isn't into that kind of thing.
Oh, a bit about my family, I have two sisters. My older sister is 16, a vegetarian, and hates my dad for some reason. My little sister is 8, a total spoiled brat, and is not really into hunting. My mom is a stay at home mom. My dad works at NASA. I have a black Labrador that is 14 years old named Thor. He is great though he can barley walk and I need to carry him everywhere. :sad: I also have a gun shy golden retriever that is 13 and named Butterscotch. My dad found her while hunting and decided after 3 years of working my butt off for a dog, he would let me keep her.
Anyone else around?

:welcome: I think that is great!! I am new too but unlike you I am new to the site and new to Duck Hunting. I don't know if the time that is listed which BTW is 0315 is actually the time where your at but if it is and your not out of school for holiday or weather related then just my thoughts :oops: but then you should have been in bed. LOL That is the Mom in me talking. School and an Education is far more important!!!!!! BUT enough of the sermon....Congrats on the getting the Drakes :thumbsup: !!! Hope you have many more wonderful hunts to tell us about in the future..........

Welcome, Dog! You are EXACTLY what this sport needs.

I'm really glad to hear you hit all your goals, and I know what you mean about the approaching end of the season. I'm a new hunter and haven't gotten a bull sprig, and I'm hoping to get one before sunset on Sunday.

You sound like a terrific huntress.

I don't have any advice on your younger sister, but on the vegetarian? I say she probably deserves respect for living her values (not eating animals) as much as you do for living yours (getting your own meat animals instead of buying it at the store). I've found most vegetarians respect what I do, believe it or not!

Three cheers for your dad too, for taking you out in the field!

Good luck for the rest of the season!

Thanks, you guys. It is much better talking to other girls than the men who don't understand anything about us. :tongue: :smile:

That's why we're here! I adore men, but sometimes they just don't understand us. It's always a huge relief to talk to other women hunters.

Welcome, Tara! :welcome:

You've taken the opposite path I've taken - I've started with ducks and I'm trying to branch out to big game, but I can't imagine how anything could be as fun as duck hunting.

Be sure to post some pics sometime to show us how the taxidermy is going.

thanks! I've had some real flops!!! But everyone says just keep trying, and you can tie it all together......that's sweet you've been doing it since you were a youngster! there's not that many of us out there.....I think this is sweet that this is dedicated to female hunters as well!!!
nice to know I'm not the only one out there....sometimes I feel like it though...I work with almost all women and I have to keep my passion to a min. there, I don't think it'd go over well with the members of PETA (I know of several) to have some duck mounts in my cubie....lol... :lol: I have thought about it though.... :eek:

Hi,

Well as you can tell my names Nicole. My husband and I just stumbled upon this site. We have been married for about 5 years. Although I grew up in a hunting household I didn't really start hunting till we got married. I have found its a way for us to really connect.

New to the forum :)


Well sort of, i've been hiding over the hubby's shoulder for months while he went through EVERY post on this forum.... 20 times lol.

My name's Laryssa and i'm living in Delaware but from Canada. Just coming to understand the great mystery of how i'm just NOW becoming a hunter when I grew up in Canada (then again i'm only 19 :rofl: ) Hopefully this upcoming season i'll get out and kill some ducks and geese.. and head up to Canada for some moose :)

I'm so glad there are other women on this forum considering men will never understand us :)

Redhead, can I call you Redhead? :wink: I hear ya. I guess I would fall somewhere in the middle when it comes to experience. I started hunting with my dad too when I was a kid. He'd go out scouting for bow season and he'd let me take my .22 and try to shoot a few squirrels. When I turned 14, I was out there deer hunting, and I've only missed one opening day since then. And I SHOULD have been in the woods, I wouldn't have totalled my car that day then. :rolleyes:

I am however new to shotgunning and waterfowling. Last year was the first full season that my husband and I have hunted waterfowl, and we were completely hooked. Two years ago was the first time I had rabbit hunted (our group brought home 50-60 bunnies that season), and last spring was my first attempt turkey hunting. I WILL bring home a gobbler next year!

I know a lot of other women are really into bowhunting, but it's not for me. I enjoy shooting at home, but with bow season running during duck season. Well, the ducks win. :wink:

Hi all, I'm new

Postby ripnrr's wife » Mon Jul 28, 2008 12:03 pm

My Name is Danielle. I'm 23, married & loving life, have a 3 1/2 month old baby boy, 7mo choco lab (training to hunt) & a 4 1/2yr black lab (gun shy, but showing interest in duck, she would make a great duck dog) and a crazy cat that thinks hes a dog.
I'm new to hunting, this year will be my first. I just finished my hunters ed. Wanted to start last year but was prego. I can't wait for the season to open and get a feel. I am staring on dove then going to duck & geese. I'm not to bad a shot we go clay shooting all the time so I hope I will be able to pick it up pretty easy. My Husband has been a hunter all his life more in the bears and etc, and he started duck last year and is hooked.
Its nice to see they have a section for woman, any of you in Nevada? I might need someone to go with sometimes so I can leave both the boys at home :biggrin: . Glad to meet you all, I hope to have some great hunting stories to share soon!

:welcome:

If you love the outdoors and shooting already, I think you'll find you'll love hunting. And can't wait to hear about your new experiences! My hubby and I are fairly new to waterfowl too, this will be his third season and my second. We deer and rabbit hunt a lot too. We try to fill the freezer with deer as quickly as possible with venison so we can get back out duck and goose hunting again now. Yep, we got hooked too. :rofl:

I'm not sure if any of the other ladies are from Nevada. NorCal Cazadora is in CA and I'm a lot further - Michigan.
