And just to clarify I drove 1730 miles the see our beautiful countryside of the USA and all the cool scenic areas along the way, meet and make some great friends out there, see the Prairie Pothole lands with my own eyes, and learn a thing or two about waterfowling and upland bird hunting. Shooting birds was only PART of what going cross country on an adventure is all about in my opinion but you do as you please with your cash and gas.

this fred bear quote prett much sums up what it is REALLY all about to me.


"A hunt based only on trophies taken falls far short of what the ultimate goal should be . . . time to commune with your inner soul as you share the outdoors with the birds, animals, and fish that live there."

Just to clarify I didn't call anyone an idiot. I just said any idiot can do it. As for standing in a pothole I've done it and it can be fun. I have a can and redhead on the wall I shot in a pothole out there. I hunted water the last day this yr because it was raining hard and I didn't want all of our field stuff soaked and then put in the trailer wet to sit out there til next yr. But to me field hunting is the ticket. If you like pothole hunting thats fine. My only grip is naming towns that some people hunt in and around. It just give first timers a place to aim for and increases hunters in that general area. Not to mention it will be much harder to get a room in the only motel in town. If I offended anyone I apoloigize.

PS. ibhansford if you hunt around where you live we prob know some of the same people. I used to work at the power plant there in Yorktown. Spent many nights at the Yorktown Pub

Everybody doesn't have an enclosed trailer full of field decoys and layout blinds either.
What time is shooting time?

sounds like fun to me! at the assumed risk of being a ducktard, i'd be interested in hearing how you went about picking, booking and arranging the trip... Trust me, I wont go to your area, but i have a hard time believing its as easy as showing up, find a non-posted spot and hunt... never done a non-guided hunt outside of my local comfort zone. ive got plenty of airline miles due to working too hard, so i might not drive!

good luck in a few hours. hope to see some feathers fly myself
