This SUCKS

Postby JinAK » Sun Sep 12, 2010 2:17 am

Deployed to Iraq and yet I am still getting pre season jitters! I find mysef surfing the web for new decoy's the latest gretest calls and reading about the new shot loads out there. Only to realize My duck season wont even start for another 13 Months! :fingerhead:
Anyway...good luck to you guys this season. :beer:

I do have a snow goose hunt planned for R&R this spring. That might hold me over for a bit.

I feel ya man. I'll be in Afghanistan for all of duck season. My R&R went to the birth of my first kid. Wifey wouldn't still love me if I used my two weeks for hunting instead. I am thinking snow geese for my welcome home present. :grooving:

I definitely know the feeling of missing waterfowl season! Stay safe over there and I hope those spring snow hunts happen for you guys!

Hear ya- was gone all of last season to AFGH- saw some ducks on the Arghandab from the helo......but didn't get any shots. The TB season was pretty good though. I took advantage pf the extra cash and bought a bunch of new dekes though....so look at the positive things and spend your tax free pay and buy more duck hunting sXXXXX

i did just that NC, picked up a few DSDs off of eBay for a good price and grabbed some more goose hunting gear as well. Traded a few calls for some new styles and am using the time to practice. Stay safe and shoot straight boys. :thumbsup:

Must be a Coastie if you got them orders. Stay safe and think of all the cool gear that you can get with the tax free money you will get.

Champ, you can hunt on pendleton and a few spots in the area around there. Shoot the Base Game Wardens a call and they will help ya out. 760-725-3360 and their office is by the Mechanized Museum by Lake O'Neill. PM me if you would like a few numbers of some buddies of mine that are still there and will be hunting this year.
