New to Duck Hunting

Postby Muskie46 » Wed May 29, 2013 1:56 pm

Hey guys,

I have not been duck hunting before but I really want to start. I live in northern Wisconsin and will mostly be field and lake hunting. I have a Remington 887 Nitro Mag (12 gauge). Ok, in all honesty, i have no idea where to start. Im a total newbie so any advice or must do's would really be great.

Thanks

Welcome!

Get some used decoys from the classifieds, along with all your gear for that matter. Ask questions, listen to advice and don't turn into a know it all... :wink:

Also scroll down the forum home screen, and get into the Wisconsin forum.

Oh... and always remember... The Packers suck.... :hammer:


:lol3:

Oh... It gets worse... I'm no Bears fan. It's much... much worse...

I live in Loserville USA. You know... that crap factory to your 9.
In all honesty, I juts like giving people a hard time about their teams.

Plus I have to thank you guys for lending us your quarterback. When can we get Rogers? :hi:

Unfortunatly, for right now... the North Twin Cities suburbs... :fingerhead:

But there is a plan in place to move up to Gods country in northern MN.

I'm such a homer it's tough for me to jump off the MN bandwagon like all the "real" fans do every October/November. :no:

Worst fan base in the nation IMO... buncha' cry babies... :crying:

Now the Packers... Best fans in the league, and THAT'S why the packers suck... :hammer:

Well... that and the fact that since Favre went to WI, and now with Rogers, the Queens are always battling uphill.

But dont worry about us... we have Ponder... :help:

Although anything is better than all the sucks that sucked before this suck... :grooving:



GO VIKES!!!!! :hi:

Really warm waders !!! I live in indiana and learned my lesson with my 600 thinsulate waders I use in the spring for walleye fishing and come December I was ffffreezing! If you can't be comfortable you won't want to stay in the hunt to long! But that's if you plan on river or lake hunting but field hunting you may not need them but due your research and listen to the long timers they may come off full of bologna but they do have quite a bit of knowledge. I am fairly new to fowl hunting and I learned worlds worth of knowledge in my first year! But save your pennies and buy good quality gear that's dependable and reliable but that doesn't mean it's outrageous in price! And don't get caught up in the next big thing like the newest calls and the most expensive decoys! Rather have 6 great decoys and 1 great call and know how to use them then 4 dozen crap deeks and a lanyard full of garbage ! Get good review products and listen to the long timers!!!!!!! :beer:

I would watch every episode of Chad Belding's show, I think its called Banded Nation.

Get his DVD's and his calls, too.

Chad will teach you every thing you need to know.
