    Haven't posted or been on for awhile. Opted to get out and look and do more, and leave cyber scouting alone for a couple seasons. Plus got tired of some of the trolls. I am planning to do a flats hunt after the New Year for divers primarily-- my maiden voyage. Not interested in body booting. Have been on the flats off-season. Had hoped to get invited to hunt with someone with experience, but that has not happened over the past two seasons. It's a big deal for me to NOT mess up someone else's hunt while I am learning an area. So.....figured I'd ask for a tutorial trip with someone hunting from a boat before I head out on my own. If not, I'll give a a whirl solo. My schedule is pretty flexible with some advance notice. If available during the week, I can likely reciprocate your generosity with a river blind site of goose pit hunt. Thanks and Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays.

    I have 2 boats and all gear, but I am just a novice trying to learn things as I go. I would love to hunt with you guys!! Very serious!! I have fished and crabbed on the bay my entire life, but only duck hunted handful of times. Please let me know!!

    I've taken Don hunting on the Potomac after he moved to MD, you couldn't ask for better company in the blind and he has many years of waterfowling experience to share.

    I'll mail you that promotional fee this week. Seriously-thanks. I remark on that trip regularly. Never so happy to shoot one GW teal and shiver with my Florida hunting clothing on. Have tried to pass on opps for others when I can.

    Yeah....sounds like most or all your haunts are locked up based on your posts. Just bored and was wondering if anybody had comments on the progress or lack of regarding the ice. Hopefully this week gives us enough thaw to open things. Glad I have some goose field options, but today I decided to be a slacker and stay on the couch.
