are you serious? That doesn't get old?
We hunt about 15-20 different areas (multiple spots in each) and rotate based on our scouting. we scout about 1 day for every hunt day.
Quite serious, and no, it hasn't gotten old after what's become a lot of years. I guide in a state with regs against that on most public lands and a very strong lease structure on the private stuff. So we lease the best private land we can afford and most of our camp's guides hunt spots strong enough to stand up well to daily gunning. My morning duck blind on the freshwater edge of the coastal marsh is one of them. Hunting geese in the afternoon requires me to move around our ag land leases, and the changes of scenery often come at the cost of not being my being current of flight trends or able to set up as well as I'd like. And I sometimes wish that were a one-spot deal, too.
In any event, I've the stroke to choose pleasant locations for my own, and the new crews of hunters and day to day challenges of making it work for them keep it from getting old. Then, again, if I only had one arse ugly spot to hunt and no one to hunt with but the dog, I'd still be out there every morning enjoying it.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.
