Howdy, Im the Fatweed. Ill explain the name later, but for short its what my little girl says i look like in camo.... hehehe Im 55, got kids from 10 to 30...five of em... some hunt,,some dont... anyway... ive been huntin since i could walk... and sometimes now it seems i can just barely walk..specially after tryin to walk all day in mud.... hehehe. I hunt everything there is to hunt around here... Kansas Now. Ive lived in Colorado, (Elk, Deer) and Nevada, (Geese, Ducks), Yeah believe it or not if ya can find water in the desert, theres some waterfowl huntin...hehehe
I grew up in Kansas, and am back now, been here three years...for shootin..??? wellllllll Since I lost my best huntin partner last spring (Dad), ive got his old Model 12... fine gun... birdseye maple... and had a bazillion shells shot thru it..... still works too.... ya couldnt haul off in a freight train all the birds that gun has shot... most offem legal too....hehehe, Dad usta say...just lay that gun on the hood...and it will get birds.....hehehe. Its basically gonna be retired tho.... ill use it dove huntin and shoot a few just for old times sake and dad.....otherwise... ill just keep the rust off it.... For the serious stuff, ive got a browning BPS 3.5 camo 12.... I can hit better than my kid with it...hehehe hes a little slightly faster with his Benelli 3.5 auto... but he only puts more steel in the air,,,, I think my steel is a little better placed maybe..??? LOL...im sure ill hear about that from him...hehehe. Maybe id like one of them benellis..??? dunno.... just cant picture John Wayne a shootin with an italian gun... heheh Noooooo,,,I know they make fine guns... its just dunno.... guess i like tradition...ya know..??? Funny,,,, i think ya get that way when ur older.... heheh its either that...??? or stubborn..???? As for huntin here in kansas...?? Yeah it can be good... its not like the old days tho... sure,,it seems there is more game in some ways..??? but not game ya can shoot at... Used to be in the old days... ya found game,,, asked if ya could hunt and that was it....nope not anymore.....too many people have ruined a good thing...anymore ya almost either gotta marry into good huntin..... or be able to afford to buy it..???? or go the public hunting route.... Nothing is wrong with any of them mind you,,,, its just not as easy as it used to be.... Nope...hehehe i dont have alotta money.... so its the old fashioned way....that i hafta earn the right to hunt some places..... and No,,,im not much willin to share those places with just anyone... I will share,,, but like i had too....ya gotta earn it... Get my drift??? So...for some ya novices out here... one place to kinda be leary of is the net huntin... last year...i was talkin it up on the net,,,,,next thing ya knew i was blown outta my spot.... so ive learned to keep my mouth shut.... hehehe... wrong.... LOL...ill probably blow it all again... LOL... or if ya hear me a braggin up my honey hole here... hehehee uhhhhhhh think twice... i might be lyin to ya.... hehehe...well unless i know yah.... hehehe... anyway....im just pullin ur chain a little....hope ya dont mind.... *S*..Keep it safe boys and girls...and play nice.... *S*
P.S. about forgot the huntin rig... LOL.. got an old 2x4 73 chevy pickup... all rusted out... call it uncle woody..she smokes some, uses some oil,,,and dont get very good gas mileage, but we aint in no hurry usually LOL... but it holds three of us....Im buildin a new engine for her when i get the shed done... got an engine all picked out to rebuild too, my dads old chevy my brother has,,said i could have it since he got dads newer old buick...LOL
Momma wont let us use her blazer...or the jeep.... long story.... And my sons only gotta newer s-10.... cant haul nuthin in that..either..??? so we use uncle woody.. its gotta rack on it..can either put the boat on top...or the canoe... holds lotta decoys...and dont mind a runnin it thru the brush either... it just polishes the rust....hehehe...if we get it stuck.... which, we havent... (I learned how..and where to drive alonggggggggg time ago.... LOL) if stuck then can push pull or drag it out with about anything.. dozer,,,tractor... whatever ya got... LOL.. dunno... heheh guess i could afford maybe a new big 4x4 diesel rig... even had one awhile back... but theres just sumpin about that old pickup,,,and the musty damp wet smell of them seats and interior that just says and smells huntin..... hehehe so ill stick with uncle woody.....

You may need to change your handle to fat fingers instead of fat weed.... You had 3 double posts... :laughing: Click it 1 time and wait a bit before clicking it again. But if it is your fat fingers, well then I suggest that you use an upside down pencil to type with :toofunny:

FYI, to delete a post, click edit, and when the new screen comes up, look below the dialogue box, there are 5 boxes that you can be checked - the last being "delete this post", check this box and then click submit and that should delete the entire post.

As for your other possible handle---maybe we should call you minnow...

Postby DuckFan » Sat Jul 10, 2004 10:28 pm

I go by DuckFan and live in Pleasanton, CA. This coming season will be my 41st for ducks. My dad got me started when I was 10, although I went with him for a few years before that.

Grew up hunting Wister Refuge on the Salton Sea and also hunted the central valley at Kern.

Now, for the past 18 years, I live in Northern CA and love it. Many more opportunities to hunt and fish.

My son hunts with me ( 28 years old now) and he started when he was 10 too. My brother also hunts with me and last year I got a neighbor's son involved in the junior program. Fun to take a young man out again.

Nice to find this site.

I am from west-central MN (MN portion of the prairie pothole region) and hunt at and around Lake Christina. (For those that don't know Lake Christina...it was the major resting area for canvasbacks coming down the Mississippit flyway). So, as you can tell, I love to hunt divers. I started hunting at age 9 (currently 31) and have hunted waterfowl in MN and Manitoba.
I love to field hunt giant canadas, puddle ducks in shallow marshes and diver hunt in deeper lakes. Diversity in both bag and hunt has always been my style (which also dictates me owning an arsenal of boats and dekes). I only hunt over decoys, and have a 2.5 year old black lab.
As my avator shows (summer-avator) I love to hunt muskies. I am also an avid bowhunter, but nothing compares to waterfowling!!

BC, do you know Jim K.? He has a cabin on Christina(south side) and is/was(?) one of the CIA officers? Jim took me up hunting on Christina a few years back. Was a bit slow for divers -unless you count coots :laughing:
Too bad his Mom passed away last month, he misses her a lot.

You know the House kids? A couple of them used to email me for awhile a few years back, I think it was Mike...he should be early 20s now I think.

I have met Jim twice (Ostrom introduced him to me). As for the House's, I know John and Tom. Both are great supporters for the area and to the sport. Tom spent a lot of time lately working on hen houses with the Pioneer Heritage Conservation Trust (a non profit where people can get hen houses if they want) and has had great success. John donates a peice of art each year at our banquet and does whatever he can to promote the lake and sport.

As for coots...Ashby is the coot capital. Hopefully Christina can rebound after our latest treatment and structures effort. She bounced back beautifully after the late 80's treatment...

Hello everyone, my name is Keith Spader and I live in eastern Neb. I've been hunting since I was 12, got into duck hunting at 14, 11 years later I still get fired up about it. I go after just about anything my dog can retrieve, but my real passion is snow geese. When I'm not hunting, I'm usually training my dog or practicing my calling.

Great site :thumbsup:

I just found this site a few minutes ago and signedup. I am jeff from Sacramento. I moved here from Texas 2 years ago due to job changes. It's weird out here. I have been a hunter as far back as the earliest my Dad would take me out.

I only started "hunting" ducks since moving to the land of fruits and nuts. We used to kick'em up off the tanks back home during the season, not really hunting.

Thanks, and I hope everyone has a good year this year.

Just joined tonight. I'm 28, live in Lone Tree CO, moved out here from MN because I love big game hunting and there obviously aren't any elk, mulies, bighorn, antelope, etc. in MN. Have had some great luck whitetail hunting in MN the last couple years, just missed BC last year so I am searching for more "wallhangers" out here. (Plan to go back to MN for all the great whitetail hunting though)

Love the big game but duck hunting is still in the blood.......I'd love to hook up with someone who wants to do some duck hunting in CO this fall, if you would be willing to take me out please email at viddles456@yahoo.com, I've got everything except a boat and I'm definitely not a rookie when it comes to waterfowling, just lacking all the hunting buddies I left behind in MN.

Anyways, nice to meet you all, hope you have great luck this fall.

I just found this place, And a nice place it seems to be.
I haven't seen anyone from Alaska in here yet so hay here I am.
Eveything you have heard about it is false fishing sucks,hunting sucks,
so don't bother coming up I 'll just have to live with it.
But serious I'm 40 years old and started hunting a age 8.
Mostly ducks now with a bear hunt there and a moose hunt here,and maybe a caribou or two. The one thing you can count on is, you will only find wild game in my freezer.Oh and did I mention the salmon.
We have a fair amount of ducks up here but where I hunt 30 min or so north of Anchorage we only have about a month and a half befor the water
gets hard and you don't get to many ducks in color. But hay I don't eat the feathers any way. I'm in and out a lot so feel free to E-mail and maybe I'll get back to you :salude:

Howdy Folks!!

I'm Matt, a youth pastor in Sulligent, AL (put your finger on Birminham in an AL map, and go left about an inch to the AL/MS line). I'm new to duck hunting, this is my first year. I bought a choc lab pup last year named Angel, and decided to train her to hunt, thus I'm getting into duck hunting. I like this site layout, and will be on here to learn a lot.


And I was reffered by "Mallyard" the great. What up bro? :thumbsup:

Nice to meet all of you! I am brand new to the forum myself. My name is Kevin and am 26 years old. I live in Quincy, IL and have spent my entire life huning and fishing in the area. The great thing about where I live is I can drive 30 minutes in any direction to find great duck hunting. The Mississippi River is ten minutes from where I live, and to the East is what is called the "Golden Triangle" of whitetail hunting. I wish you all good hunting this season. :salude:

h2ofwlr brought this forum to my attention, so I decided to sign up.

I'm 25 years old and have lived in Arkansas all my life. I've been working for a large healthcare organization for the last 5 years.

I started duck hunting when I was just a little kid and haven't missed a season yet. 2.5 years ago I picked out a butterball of a yellow female lab named Haley and she turned out to be a great dawg despite my training her.

We pretty much stick to lakes and rivers in the area. It's definitely not what Arkansas is known for. The nice thing is the boat ramp is only 10 min. away.
