Hi everyone, I am new to this site, and recently new to Wisconsin. Living and working in Sheboygan Wisconsin. Been hunting about 32 years now, since 18 years old. Began hunting rabbits and pheasants in Ireland, moved to Canada where I got into waterfowl and training retrievers, now I live in the states. Still hunting strong. Now I normally hunt ducks, almost never hunt geese anymore, although I still love upland hunting and am looking forward to chasing Wisconsin grouse. Just bought a boat in Wisconsin and am planning on installing a cover blind on it this summer, still have to figure out where to hunt and hoping to hookup with a few hunting partners. Back home in Canada I have a 50 year old sneak boat with a 49 year old working Chrysler 3.5 hp motor, still keeping the old ways alive.
Love to run my retriever, only have one now, been too busy to train more. Hoping to hunt a few more U.S. states this coming fall, perhaps will take a trip to Chesapeake Bay. I love to hunt all kinds of ducks, but the last few years I have concentrated on hunting over water and less and less field hunting, although I do enjoy field hunting ducks. A few years back I switched to my 20 gauge over and under for waterfowling and enjoy taking late season divers with it.
Perhaps this forum will help me get to know some local hunters with the same interests and we can enjoy time afield.
