Was wondering if anyone has given any thought to having a DHC hunt again this year???

Thanks,

I'm game. I missed out last year due to a wedding but I'm for sure in for this year.

Yea, Zman I would do it again. Your somewhere in Central PA right? I think we talked about this some last year.

Only bad thing is I hate to commit too much to a date because things just seem to pop up. Unfortunatly I missed last years DHC West hunt do to an installation job in MD that wasn't planned. Still feel bad about missing that.

PA Waterfowler,
Yeah I was surprised someone else had not already started this thread...

I know the days that work for me for a mid-season (Nov) hunt would be first weekend in Nov. Which we did the last 2 years. Possibly the 3rd (16th) weekend, or the weekend of Thanksgiving (30th).

I'm in SW Central PA (according to WJAC-TV)...LOL.

I don't know about November, still a little early to tell. Usually though November is just about the busiest month of the year for me. Unfortunatly I'm not strictly a duck and goose hunter, I hunt and trap everything. I do know I would be availabe from about mid-December to mid-January. I don't know what your schedule is like then. That's usually the best time of year for me to, as far as numbers of birds we kill.

Let me know what your thinking, and feel free to pm me.

Keep me posted, and maybe others will chime in once the season opens and the juices get flowing.

Weather usually freezes me out by that time on the water. I could potentially have some time during that period though, and would be interested in a field hunt for Duck and or Geese.
Usually by the end of Jan I'm in predator mode, but I think we can probably work a hunt in...

Thanks,
John

I'm not signing up to make the same mistake I made last year. Planning a hunt this far in advance is almost pointless. There are too many variables. I understand people need to plan for a date, but going hunting for the sake of going hunting is silly. I'm jjust going to wait. If the weather and flights look right, I'll show up. If you guys want to wait until the prospective week of, that would probably be smarter.
