Call me Craxty but...

Postby Craxty » Sat Dec 03, 2011 8:28 pm

I've spent the last week sitting in a tree stand hoping that some deer would be dumb enough to come within 70 yards of me; the whole time I'm sitting there I grow increasingly worried that the temperature is going to plummet and freeze over my few water holes and end my first year as a waterfowler. Dammit, ducks are just more fun and intellectual. I'm officially hooked.

That being said, what the hell do I do now that the water is freezing????? I'm scared as hell.

A word of advice, wear thin layers while breaking ice. You'll be sweating in no time.

Chainsaws work quick but I don't recommend it as it leaves a lot oil on the water. Just not good.

Weren't you hunting a river or creek next to a pasture?

good points made by ALL a friend who ''tried duck huntin' with me last could only think about it while in his deer stand ,,he saidd ''Hey what's wrong with this picture?' .He left the stand early.

ill say this i enjoy deer hunting.. but you will only see me in a stand in early archery season when there is a gap in waterfowl seasons..

When you have spent a missed season in the sandbox of the middle east.. you learn that every hunt, good or bad, is a vacation well worth the time and effort..
