Re: Do You Hunt Ducks or Geese?
I live 15 miles from Stuttgart AR and everybody here but me hunts ducks. I hate it. Get up at 330 in the morning so you can ride 45 minutes in a boat in 20-30 degree weather, usually raining, wade a half mile carrying your gun, plenty of ammo, a massive decoy bag and the rest of your gear. You get your stuff set up and then put out the decoys, kill five ducks, gather your stuff and do it again in backwards order and go home. Not for me. I prefer deer hunting. Got the whole summer and early fall to get your stand ready when it is time to hunt, I go to my little house on the hill, its a ten minute four wheeler ride, and if I feel like walking I will park a quarter mile away, and walk the trail to my stand, if I don't I will ride straight to it. go in my stand, sit down, light the heater, hang out and watch for deer to walk out at 715, 840, and 935 in the mean time watch the back side of the hill in hopes that grand daddy slips up and shows me more than his head. then at least once every weekend a have a group come by I haven't seen before in a new area. That is how I like to hunt. Otherwise I get down off the stand grab ol' thumper (encore 45/70) and go slippin down in the creek bottom.
