So im heading down towards Ft. Lauderdale after work today to stay with my girlfriend's parents until next friday. Ive never met her dad before, and figured I might need a break in any tensions of living under his roof for the week. Me being me said you know what, I bet theres some excellent duck hunting around there. Sure enough, DHC members pulled through and are swapping a hunt with me while im there for a future hunt of canadas and mallards(they apparently dont get many mallards at all). I was told mottled ducks have legs like chickens, and fulvous tree ducks can be as plentiful as the mosquitos on some days and when the pintails get there they stack em up. I saw on some crazy map that cinnamon teal even sneak around the area but my new friends who have hunted the area for years said theyve heard of only a couple getting taken in the area we are heading. Itll be a interesting experience though since ive never even seen the tree ducks or mottleds outside of pictures, and Ive never been on a airboat either which sounds pretty cool. Ill be sure to post some pics on here of me sweating my jewels off in my 1200 thinsulate waders in the everglades. Good luck to all you guys getting out next week, the weather sounds perfect! Ill be back next Saturday, save some birds for me. Or push them all to my private spots, that works too
does having multiple screen names on a forum and having a conversation with yourself make you an extra special rock star hunter?
