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.

Now he'll find out if he really likes waterfowling or not.
A year from now, you'll wish you had started today.

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?

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..
