Hmmmm, I gotta give it to you blackjack.... That was probly the best post you have written thus far. But as far as respect goes I have more than you could ever imagine and just b/c I'm not from arkansas doesn't mean I dont live and breathe duck hunting as much a you do bro. But I kill about as many ducks in Alabama as I do Arkansas but its just a different style of hunting and yes i kill plenty of mallards here, maybe not the pintails but definately plenty of mallards. I also hunt in Venice Lousiana quite a bit... Which is probably the best duck hunting in the nation... my (opinion) before you get your panties in a bunch. But yeah I enjoy hunting in the rice fields in arkansas, marshes in Venice, and timber/rivers in bama cause its all different. The Point here is I dont care where anyone if from if they enjoy ducks like I do, we are good to go. YOU are the one that has absolutely no respect for other people or your southern heritage.... I guess the Order nor your state taught you respect or u wouldn't act like you do. I could almost understand you going to some yankee forum and bashing them... thats almost acceptable but why would you start something in the heart of dixie's forum? You dont see any of us coming to your forum saying disrespectful things. No b/c deep down we respect every other southern state, ( or at least I do) But I guess the teaching of the spiritual founder R.E.L. didn't teach u much. Maybe if you aren't to ignorant you'll learn something from this post.
