14/15 Texas Traveling Coot Thread

Postby MarkM » Wed Oct 09, 2013 8:33 am

Alright, since you honkeys are to lazy to make the thread, I will.

It is that time of the year again and it's time to start it up.

This year for a rambler, we are having a coot.

Copy the dates and fill in when you want to hunt over it. First come, first serve, yada yada.

PM the next person on the list to get their address and send it along to them.

Send out the rambler on Monday, that way whoever is getting it next has a chance to hunt it over the weekend. Be sure to take pictures of the rambler in the spread, on the spoils of the day(s), with hunting partners, etc...

Stumpjumper1590 has a special request to have it overnighted since he can only hunt during the week and don't send it to Matt since he is turning into a Hotlanta Hoodlum. Don't need him stealing the decoy.


Included in the box will be:
Whiteout pen to sign your name, DHC, real, or both I don't care.
Random item to pass onto the next person. When you receive the rambler, snap a picture of everything.



Try and time it up to hunt with multiple members if possible!

I'm out...only been here long enough to try to find some new honey holes for this season. I can't believe you guys aren't willing to share more information with a new hunter. I've only been doing this for 20 years now, and could've really used some help.

On a serious note...I look forward to seeing the pictures, and hope you guys have a safe & productive season.

Oh, I saw where you wrote in requirements, I'm just wondering why you feel you need to make stuff like that up. The worst that could happen would be a coot decoy would be lost. Also, I think there are some people that may want to participate that don't meet your "requirements".

Outside of a camera being sent as well, the requirements aren't hard to meet.

This is a lot less than others require: Have more than 50 posts, been active for a year or you have met someone on here.


You can get 50 posts within a few days if you wanted to participate.

No question. Only bringing up that if you didnt make up these requirements you might get more people involved. Even some that that havnt been here for a while.

I will just take the camera out and we can do no requirements then. Just snap your own photos and load em up.

Requirements are necessary and they have always been enforced on the main flyway ramblers. Those requirements are more than fair. This weeds out the people that don't interact/contribute.

Where you at on the coast?

If you want to put em back up, go ahead. It doesn't bother me, as long as the rambler makes it way around the state in an acceptable time for each person.
