A great state with a number of waterfowl. This Pennsylvania duck hunting forum is a great place to discuss hunting practices from all over the state.

Well if anyone was at the swamps today you probably now how bad the mosquitoes were! I have never had them so bad while hunting! And the rain wasn't real fun either, only made it until the skies really opened up at around 8:00 or 8:30. But the before that the ducks were really moving! The boys got three before we hung it up though!

Nice job boys! We made it until 9 had one shot that was missed. We didn't see the birds like we did last weekend. All in all we still had fun and the boys want to hunt more ducks...so mission accomplished.

I took out my long time buddies son and his best friend. I knew that one boy had only ever fired one shot which came the night before. The other boy had never fired a shotgun. I had a good bit of dirt between them and insisted they shoot ducks in the decoys. Wingshooting wouldn't be quite ethical or teaching them the right thing. We had mallards, geese and woodies all work, I called them in like they were dumb september birds, but at 10 feet above the water, everything flared. I had them too exposed, but it was a tough situation. Shooting at birds with little expectation of realistically getting them is skybusting. Even at 20 yards, it would have been just that. I offered to teach them how to shoot on a trap range and both of them seemed very eager. They wanted to do what their father's and I would have.
