    :thinking: :thinking:

    I can't take it any more...every evening when I'm out Bow Hunting I get several flocks of Geese flying in low circling around to land at the local Pond or Lake,these Geese come in so slow and low that I'm seriously thinking about getting the old Mosseberg 20 gauge out and buy myslef a Goose and Duck tag/stamp?


    We sat in the blind this morning and counted over 30 misc small Ducks too....not sure about hunting them though...their pretty fast and hard for me to identify them as a beginner Duck Hunter? :whistle: :thinking: :shrug:

    Its easier to ID the ducks after you shoot them, so don't worry about that part. You will learn, just keep going down the path you are on, to enlightenment

    :rof2: kidding of course

    Heck, go for it. But I have a feeling it is like Turkey season when you see all the deer. And deer seaon when you see all the turkey!

    goose hunting and duck hunting are TOTALLY different. Always keep that in mind.

    If you ever do go make shure you pick out a single duck or goose in teh pack. Dont aim at center fo the pack, you chances of getting one is way lower.


    Have fun, it is a blast even if yo not get any. But it is a exspensive hobby even if you go the cheap route.

    The ducks you are seeing are most likely wood ducks, being that there are still a ton around.

    I LOVE TO KILL THINGS AND WE ALL KNOW THIS! PROBLEM I HAVE WITH DUCK HUNTING IS, I JUST DO NOT LIKE TO EAT DUCK! OTHERWISE, I WOULD MOST LIKELY BE OUT THERE. I JUST HATE TO KILL IT AND NOT EAT IT! WELL UNLESS IT IS A YOTE OR A NASTY DILLO. THOSE ARE FREE GAME.

    you just need to take the ugly out of the duck, Soak in salt water, rinse Soak over night in whole milk.... then slice very thinly and marinate in teriyaki sauce, skewer em up and cook slowly and not over cooked... put some honey teriyaki sauce to sweeten them up and enjoy....

    After taking my nine year old son out on the youth deer hunt this weekend and sittin in the blind without seeing anything, I asked him what he thought about deer hunting.
    His answer: "Well it sure ain't turkey huntin or duck huntin. I think I'll stick with that."
    I couldn't have been prouder.:rof2:
