    for me anyway, it started two weeks ago, but I wasn't able to make it out.

    Little slow time between flights:

    I've never had duck. I would hunt them some day, but there isn't a place around where I hunt that has any of them. I've got a 28" barrel Mossberg Maverick 88 that I bought for bird hunting. What kind of equipment did you use?

    Nice. Duck is alright to eat. I eat it every once in a while but they are just so damn bony and they are a little rough to eat.

    Ducks good, I just breast them out and eat the breast, the rest is too much of a hassle to clean for what you get and the taste.\

    As for equipment, I've got my (new) Stoeger M2000, 3 dozen deke's, a pair of hodgeman waders (what the shotguns are resting on), and an avery water bag (behind the dog) to hold shells, coffee, license, phone, gloves, calls, etc, etc. Along with a bunch of miscellaneous shit.

    It is indeed a girl lab, and she surprised the hell out of me, I thought at 7 mo old river hunting was going to suck, chasing after the ducks ourselves, but she retrieved all but two of the ducks in that picture, and we only lost one.

    goose is better, but de-breast the duck, and throw it in some cajun batter. Fry it up. :yum:

    Duck has always been too greasy for me.

    I cut the breasts into smaller strips, then use a regular batter and fry 'em up, then I add some hooters hot sauce (complements of the ex roommate), definitely tasty.

    Jamie hit up www.duckhuntingchat.com and www.duckhunter.net and look at your local forums. You may or may not find anyone to help you get started. A lot of hunters won't share their honey hole, because all across the country waterfowling is getting more popular, and there are less and less places to hunt that are not over crowded, so naturally when you find a great place to go, you're hesitant to tell anyone about it. But you should at the very least find people that will help you find the resources for local shops, gear, and wildlife management areas open to everyone. Feel free to PM me with any questions you have too.

    Join ducks unlimited, delta waterfowl or both, and start giving your money to people who try to conserve and create more swampy areas for the birds too :bigthumb:

    :cool: I give to Ducks Unlimited now and then. My dad used to duck hunt all the time; not sure if I'll even see any ducks here in central TX. I s'pose I'm willing to drive some distance on a weekend. :)

    :cool: Sucker your dad into being your hunting buddy, nothing like experience from an old geezer to get some birds in.

    :) I'd like to. 'Course (a) he lives in AZ, (b) I live in TX, and (c) he did all his hunting when I was little and we were living in MN. I'll do some research though. :)
