some real sportsmen on this site

Postby 6x6pinz » Wed Jan 02, 2008 7:40 pm

My hunting buddy and I got a second chance to go down to Yuma and hunt with desertducks of this forum. We had a fabulous time again. It is good to meet some real sportsmen who are willing to take new guys out and show them the ropes. We actually manage to get our first Pintail. Unfortunately mine got into the reeds before I could retreive it but my buddy is very excited about his. I have not seen such a variety of ducks around Phoenix. If memory serves me correct we have taken seven different varieties this year. This sure can be one addicting sport.
Thanks to you again Desertducks

Good to hear you have met some good people. I wish I were more available this year. But it has been a rough one for me. Next season will be better.

It is amazing what you will see in AZ. I have shot all 3 teal varieties here, cans, read heads, golden eye, buffle head, ringers, blue bills, pintails, wigeon, gadwall, mallards, spoonies, I think thats all of them. I have seen hooded mergies, and common mergies, wood ducks and mexican ducks while hunting. I know of the general location of some tree ducks supposedly. I plan on looking for them next season. And I saw a eurasion wigeon on a golf course last season.

There are ducks here, just got to go find them.
Have you ever woke up one day and said. Damn when does the season start.

I did not know we had so many varieties of ducks that move through AZ. I saw a couple of cinnamon teal but did not get a shot at them. Of course the wood duck would be nice also. If this keeps up I will need to get into taxidermy. The set set (M/F ) of buffle heads and the hooded merganzer we picked up early in the season are going to make nice additions to the other mounts. I guess one of the largest problems with this sport is the cost of the mounts of the really nice birds. There should be a warning to all newcomers that this can be a costly sport, expecially if you like to get birds mounted. :wink:

Just wanted to say thanks to you for taking me out several times I know if you didnt meetup with me I would not have had as much fun as I have had everytime I go out.

Thanks again,

Hope we get out a couple more times before season ends.

I also have to be back on Sunday. Time to slaughter a couple of lambs for the party next week. Should be a good time. We are going to have lamb, duck, turkey, pig and hopefully buffalo, oh yeah and lots of home brew beer.

Saturday depends on DD. If we go to Yuma then I can stop by and pick you up. I usually head out of here around 5:00a which would put me at the Circle K at 5:45A and then off to Yuma.

The party is actually the following weekend. It is just an excuse to get together and have some good food and of course drink. If you have the time you should bring the gal and stop by.

I can't wait either. I want to try out my new duck gun. It is getting near the end of the season and desperate times call for desperate measures.

Whats up guys? Well to start things off i am very interested in duck hunting Arizona. i was born and raised in a small town in Wisconsin, and was spoiled. (had private land to hunt on for ducks) it limited me to mallards and wood ducks and the occasional GW teal. i live down in tucson but i am more than willing to dive but because i work nights saturday mornings are usually rough. i have 30 mallard decoys and can call ok. ( i didnt scare them off while i was home). was wondering if you guys could point me in a good direction to go out , or if anyone would care if i would tag along? let me know.

infamous, sunday i tried to go to picacho. i say tried cuz i failed to bring a good map and a guy i used to work with told me it was easy to get to. you just go up 87 and take a right onto a dirt road. i think i drove on every road except the one i needed to. thats about it. got me a new map, so ill try again. i did see about a dozen ducks flying around overhead. i did hear it was dry but i figured there might be a couple potholes with the rain it got there. and i am more than willing to pull my weight, if ya'll invite me out

6x6, remington spr 310 over under, just got it for Christmas.

Heck ya always welcom new faces.
You will be very happy with the 310. I have had one in 410 for a few years now and picked up the 12 in November. Really like the way they work. Infamous can tell you we hunt with a guy with a Ruger red Label ($1,200 gun) and he has nothing but problems with rounds being ejected. He has actually just started hunting with his Stoeger sxs. What a step down, but at least it works.

i am happy with it so far. it is a little heavier to swing than im used to, but im adjusting to it pretty good. i shoot a beretta back home. but i keep that there cuz i still go home to hunt each year and transporting guns back and forth just gets to be to much to carry.
