    Seaducks are not considered divers by diver hunters. We will kill them, but they are not our focus. I live and hour and a half from where Pitboss shoots all his video. It's not hard to go kill them if you want to and have the proper/safe equipment. I have 150 diver decoys, layout boat, big vhull..... I have zero scoter/old squaw decoys. Everyone around here knows someone with a seaduck rig (3-4 dozen decoys). Used to be once or twice a year we go out and kill seaducks to give the dogs a nice tuneup, now with the season cut back, it's just not as popular.

    The videos are advertising for the outfitters, which is fine. It's funny to watch the **** poor shooting.

    This cold weather coming in should get some diver posts. To me they are both open water ducks and I enjoy both.

    Well said, I think if you spit the forum, there will be zero traffic. I say, you want more freshwater stuff, then post it. There are great opportunities for freshwater hunts, and a ton of Seaduck opportunities on the Great Lakes now as well. So post up guys.

    TonyH I don't believe I ever see you post up any hunt pics or stories only highlight your product which by all means you are a sponsor, but let's see some hunting pictures

    If someone wasn't pushing his service, there wouldn't be so much. Look at the post as little ads. He's a sponsor, so it's fine. That's what being a sponsor gets you. If they made a sea duck forum, he would just have to put the ads on both to reach as many people as he can.

    It's just my opinion, but business must be slow for him to be pushing like that, I've never seen him so aggressively sell his service before.

    I am not sure splitting the 2 would solve anything. I personally enjoy seeing all the pics of successful and comical hunts. Our sponsors hunt Sea Ducks, Divers, and Brant. Keep it all together.

    Tony, that wasn't directed at you. By the way the two men Kalashs look great.
