well i suck at waterfowling, but i think it's because i haven't been out enough.  maybe i'll head down to south dakota and have travo put me on the birds.......John Andrews, you aren't that far from sioux falls are you??  We could probably use someone to retrieve the birds in case the dogs get tired. ;D ;D

It takes patience to break a good hound. Ya gotta be persistent and it helps to be a lil smarter then the dog.

You rascals!  ;D I live quite a ways from there, across the state.  :) And, I have already fetched my last duck, a couple of years ago. Duckers are having some poor hunting in most of this area because of no pothole water all season and everything freezing up. There are a more divers this year and not nearly as many mallards and woodys. The goose shoot has been less this year, too. We still have a heavy local goose population, but the hunters aren't killing many. It's supposed to warm up this weekend,  season about over, most guys are already pulling their dekes. It was +02 F last night without counting the wind chill, and -2F with the windchill this morning. With 7" of snow on the ground since last Thursday night, it's the death of most of our duck hunting here. The folks on the open water on the Mississippi River here are doing OK.  How's that for a duck report?

I hunt on the Black River in northeast Arkansas.  We hunt mallards in green timber with a few woodies and teal mixed in.  So far, this year has been one of the best in the last 5 years.

Travo,
would you take the time to explain the "how to's" to duck and goose hunting?

I've never hunted them before, other than shooting the heads off Canadian geese, in our farm fields, with a high power rifle....   :twisted: 

I have a dawg in training and we've been working on water drills. I would love to go along hunting with the dawg to see what he's got....  O0 

Come on, start teaching a newbie the sport.....   :wink:
Who was the first person to look at a cow and say, "I think I'll squeeze these dangly things here, and drink whatever comes out?"

man,would i be more than happy to. there is so much to know,yet what attracted me to waterfowling was the immediate sucess that i had. i am not a good big game hunter,but maybe found a knack for waterfowling. its tough to post everything at once,so ill just start with what i have been doing this time of year,right after waterfowling ends. the best thing you can do right now is get a call and start practicing. although i am a phil robertson fan, no one teaches calling like buck gardner. go get a single reed call and one of his cds and start practing in your truck on the way to and from work,so the wife doesnt shoot you. this is also a great time to buy dekes and other gear,because stores dont want to sit on it and inventory it another year. ill try to add more as time allows.
