Rookie waterfowl hunter

Postby Bohdichaka » Sun Dec 22, 2013 11:27 pm

Hello all,

My name is Jeremy and I am a resident of las cruces, nm. I just recently registered on the forum and wanted to introduce myself. This is my first season hunting waterfowl and I must say I have enjoyed myself. My first hunt was at bitter lakes nm and then a couple more around las cruces. So anywho hope everyone is enjoying the holidays and the hunting is going good. :grooving:

Looks pretty close haha just buy a mask so you don't have to spend the time putting on your makeup I'm not trying to be a jerk but face paint is a sore spot for me with all the duck dynasty people but I'm glad your having fun... It's addicting right? Just practice the right way to hunt

Nothing wrong with face paint, I've worn it before, but going all rodeo-clown with it is funny. No way around it. And there's still a lot of shiny face showing even with the racing stripes. :biggrin:

Keep having fun man. That's what it's all about.

I didn't know that cork was pore friendly. Thanks for the pro-tip. I'll throw one in my bag when I get home tonight.

Not sure about fooling anyone................. I flared and made it out like a duck by seeing the glare of your forehead :tongue:
Unsure if comb overs count as camo

And Jeremy. Expect some sort of abuse. Its a shame we have to have thick skin coming to this site. Keep that face from shining. Nothing wrong with hiding a glaring face from them ducks. Keep at them.......Practice, Practice, Practice.

No it's not...there's a bunch of hunters hanging out in one "spot". Everybody is going to get ribbed a little bit. Doesn't matter if it's on the internet or standing around a campfire. If you can't joke around with folks or handle someone laughing at you every now and then, maybe you should take up chess. I hear most chess clubs don't tolerate any kind of shenanigans.


Besides, this is just the internet...don't take it so seriously.

i think we got a healthy mix of both...some old-fashioned, good-natured ribbing, and plenty of those willing to call bullshit when the need arises. not to say that often times the 'locals only' vibe doesn't permeate the board, it certainly does. and sometimes there's a definite jock mentality to the whole thing, but i think, by and large we usually find common ground; and those that can't take or don't like it usually just fade away. besides, i think a little hazing now again is a good thing, it separates the meat from the chum, as they say.

Fisrt let me say yes, face paint was a bit much, however my bud and I had a blast. I appreciate the razzing (I got thick skin) just don't be mad when it comes back your way hahaha. Also it was between the commando look or braveheart. I doubt I will stop the face paint either...somehow it just gets me in the duck hunting mood.

The best piece of advice I have for you is buy some Zquil. Last weekend was the closer of goose here and I still only slept 2 hours!! This sport is addicting and I get way too antsy the night before a hunt haha. Glad you had a good time though, duck hunting is great for being with friends and family. Ducks in hand are just a bonus. Theres a ton of good guys on this site, just stay away from Mud motor talk as some people are ruthless over there!

Good to see a health community here, and whenever I go on my beer drink trips it's always an extra to harvest whatever I'm hunting :thumbsup:
