    pintails are like a plague where i hunt and we are always having to pick through the flocks of pins for the other ducks to fill our limits. i always get a kick out of guys askin where to get them, i probably shot close to 100 this season with 20 or more that were worthy of hangin on a wall. if you get a chance def go to the west coast for them, the numbers will amaze you. :tu

    Tough plague to have!! I laugh because we here in the New England area face the same with Blackducks!!! After you shoot your first one of the day - you sit and watch one after another tease you as you have to take a second look to be sure its not a hen suzie!!

    I wouldn't count on the curtain blind thing with 100% assurance. The weather dictates that hunt.

    I know a guy, who knows this guy that could get your so and you a Pintail...especially just before Christmas. He also could provide transportation to and from airport, shells, housing, food, etc. Just no Delivery Pizza...Also would treat you (not your son) to a dinner at Red Robin.
    This guy has pretty good success with his friends or visitors shooting bands and wall hanger Pins....another cool hunt would be to get your son onto a youth hunt.....
    I also heard that this guy has a connection to some sick arse camo. He also LOVES to shoot Black Ducks and Heavies...

    Let me know....

    Finally in a free state.
    If you make it out here to hunt with the crazy guy in Oregon, make sure and leave enough time to get over the hill so I can get you out in the scull boat. :tu:tu

    I second the west coast thing. We lease a field in arkansas and shoot plenty of sprig but I've never seen anything like the west coast.

    You need to look at coastal Texas or Catahoula lake. Either of those places are thick with sprigs.

    NCBADGES has it right. As close to a sure thing as you can get but the only downfall is you will only shoot Pintails & Redheads with a stray bufflehead here and there. The curtain blind is an experience of it's own.

    Hopefully someone with a fan boat from Utah will offer you a swap. It's a great ride with plenty of pintails.
