Hey mark,I'm a mass-hole but I hunted ducks in Rhode Island for a few years. RI is the best kept duck hunting secret. I can never find any post on the sites. I hunted the Sabin point area and loved it.
I'm going to be hunting in the Ocean State the Sunday after Thanksgiving. I booked a hunt and am going to blasting at some sea ducks somewhere around Middletown. I can't wait. I will let y'all know how it goes. :salude:
Talked to a friend that went sea ducking this morning both of them got limits of black,surf scoter and some eiders you should have no problems bagging some birds with a guide post some pics when you get back would like to see them
Presently stationed in Virginia, will be relocating to Newport in Jan 07, (my second tour in RI) Cant wait to get back and hunt waterfowl without so many restrictions (VA). Seaducks / Marsh / field hunting for geese, I have all the equipment and always have room for 1 or 2 responsible hunters.
Looking for hunting buddies to help me kill some of the Canadian's. It's now early season, headed back to field 1 in the south shore managment area, this weekend. There is a new pit blind in that field, it's cool.
I will be moving to Mass in Oct but I plan on hunting in RI alot. ! have 8 DZ shells and Silos and 2 lay-out blinds, if you wanna hook-up for some late season waterfowling or Bow-hunting. Let me know, I will be working in Newport.
Myself, a long time hunting buddy Scott, and a new friend that I met here on "duck hunting chat" Silenthunter, will be hunting at O'dark early. It is early season, and we don't know what will happen. We will be hunting in a feild that has just been cut over the past three days. Tons of corn in the field, I just hope that the birds have found it.
I will post our results after the hunt. I hope we have some photos of birds to posts as well. Wish us luck.
The corn has hit the ground, and so did the birds. Today was one of those days that you read about. The day started out with a high pressure system with stars over head. By the time we had all the decoys in place, the weather was starting to turn. Clouds comming in from the southwest with a nice wind kicking up.
I met with my new found hunting buddy Silenthunter and another that I have hunted with for years. We got down in the pit for a cup of coffee and started shooting the breeze. Before I could put my cup to my mouth, "HONK-HONK!" It was on!
To make a long story short, see the attached photo of our limit of early season honkers.
I think that I will take Silenthunter along with me on all my hunts, I think he's good luck.
