The happy place where duck hunters go to talk about anything other than duck hunting. Well sometimes duck hunting but normally not.August 22, 2014 at 8:34 am #8282
Nice job!August 22, 2014 at 8:33 am #8281
Some old, some new folks still hanging out, waiting for duck season to start.August 15, 2014 at 9:00 am #8255
Haha, I sure hope to! I am not sure on how good the season will be. From recent scouting, I am not seeing a lot of teal. Seeing woodies and mallards. When you buy it by the case, you get free shipping:)
I figure if nothing else, I can reach out on the dove a little farther n them.August 14, 2014 at 8:53 am #8247
I like 3′s and 4′s. I just picked up a case of Kent Teal steel in 6′s. I do a fair amount of jump shooting creeks and small ponds before and after work for wood ducks. Normally in close and personal shooting. When decoy hunting I like the bigger shot because the birds are normally mallards or bigger ducks and some days they just don’t want to back paddle at 10 yards and you have to reach out and talk to them at 20-30 yards.August 5, 2014 at 1:06 pm #8232
How does the drawing work?
Do you get a spot and build your own blind or does the lake/dnr provide the blinds?July 29, 2014 at 11:51 am #8201

Duck hunting is a little over a month away. I am guessing it will pick up then.July 22, 2014 at 11:17 am #8175
I am starting to think my money might be better spent putting up wood duck houses and mallard nest. I finally figured out the membership issue with DU and for some reason is has left me a little pissed off at them. I will reup with Delta, DU I am not sure about. I might change my mind, I do like the magazine.July 22, 2014 at 11:14 am #8174
I read that Miinnneeeessssoootttta was the only state to shoot it down. Hopefully you guys will get it next year. I am curious to how long it will last in WIsconsin. If a certain number of non teal are shot, the season will be shut down the following year. Wisconsin has a lot of duck hunters that are the sharpest crayon in the box. A lot them are running around a brick shy of a load so we will see. I am thinking if the feds are out in force, we might not have it next year.July 18, 2014 at 7:28 am #8158
I contribute to both.
I am talking with a customer service rep for DU due to the fact they stopped sending me magazines. DU says my membership expired in February. My online DU account says it expires in September. I have emailed and called, waiting to hear back.
I also emailed DU awhile back and asked them to stop sending me shit every week. Literally once a week I get a packet of info to join or renew DU. In my email to them I asked why not save the money on printing this stuff and put it towards the ducks. i never heard back. It seems silly to constantly send out this stuff when I have been a member since i was about 16 or 18 years old.July 11, 2014 at 9:58 am #8150
Thank goodness they got rid of the noon opener!July 8, 2014 at 12:17 pm #8137
The 9:00 opener stems from a hunting accident back in the day. I think it was in the 60′s. Some young kids were out in a boat hurrying to their spot when the boat capsized. At least one drowned maybe more. One of the kids was a son of politician. The politician then passed the 9:00 opener so people would be going out in the day light. I am not sure what the difference is between Saturday and then Sunday. Its a rat race every day of the season.
If you are hunting a large public area, the 9:00 opener keeps birds moving but overall really hurts the hunting. Sunday is normally a better day.June 27, 2014 at 1:11 pm #8121
Haha, yea a 9:00 opener but the 2nd day is normal half hour before. I have to double check but I think we have to stop hunting at 7:00pm. The DNR is thinking the 9:00 opener will reduce the morons from shooting woodies, mallards and other ducks.
Yep, lots of steel shot. I hunt mainly public and you have to use steel for everything from dove to turkeys. I am thinking 3 inch mag 6′s for the all around shell. Shoot teal, dove and honkers. Just make sure to hit the honkers in the head!June 25, 2014 at 7:51 am #8114
Yu, correct. It does not stop even after the 90 minutes has passed. Goofy game.June 23, 2014 at 1:51 pm #8111
Just read the last issue, that is some great reading!June 23, 2014 at 1:35 pm #8110
Soccer- The only game that goes on after the clock stops. Goofy stuff right there.June 20, 2014 at 1:51 pm #8101
FB is fun for pissing off my liberal friends. It also is fun to see how stupid some people can be. Cheap entertainment really. The whole NSA and federal tracking thing is pretty scary. Big brother watches all of our moves, facebook, email, phone calls, text messages. What ever you do, they know about it. The strange part is nobody seems to care.
