Please do not shoot at geese or ducks that are 100 yards up in the air, get the in close and kill them, skybusting will only educate the birds. A hint to knowing a goose is in range is to clearly see the white patch on the cheek. Let them get close, worst thing they can do is hit the blind.

What was bad, took someone that had never been before and he even said the looked awful high as they flew over, just before the volley started.

Ducks were pretty decent numbers before season, but now next to nothing, need a solid week of cold to freeze up the the small water and push some new birds in. Geese are wise, but still good numbers.

No worries brother, it goes hand in hand with it. What area are you in and are you military? May not be Arkansas, but we still have some good shoots. We could link up based on the situation.
Shoot me a PM. Wish they still had the state duck stamp, amazing what $12.50 does for idiot avoidance, born again duck hunters (after deer season).

It is not all about limits, but conservation ended on opening day.

The future of our sport is to introduce as many newbies to the sport, train their mind set.

I will agree with woodie on this one. The future of duck hunting isn't about how many ducks you kill. The sport of duck hunting is being able to make the ducks come to you not shooting at them a mile high. I mean even with a super fullturkey choke they couldn't kill them all they are doing is ruining it for the rest if the real duck hunters. I have been trying to get laws past to keep them from skyblasting. Even on the odd chance they hit a bird by the time it lands and usually there not dead it just swims off and no one gets the bird. But oh well I guess skyblasters are never goingto learn. Right with you woodie!!!!!
