    Um, I guess I should explain the way things work on these internet forums.

    Most serious duck hunters are not going to give you serious scouting info, especially when you only have three posts to your name. You are not the only one that reads these posts so it is like an open invitation when serious info is posted.

    You might want to try the Private Message function to ask people for help.

    You should try to scout areas you intend to hunt yourself as well. That is part of hunting.

    No ducks...at all...they hate merritt:dv

    This may just be the internet, but scouting on here is frowned upon just like sitting at the ramp and watching where everybody came from and what they shot.

    Not illegal by any means, just not real hunting like Floridaboy said

    Cut'em send me a PM with what area your are going to hunt and I'll share what I can. I hunted there 3 times since the second phase opened and have done pretty good. Lots of pintails working right now so be very selective of your shots.

    Wow, what a joke. I scout 3X more than i hunt. I scout non stop, all year long. Only problem is I live 7 hours from merrit island so it is kinda hard to get out early and scout. I plan on scouting once I get there sat. morning, just thought yall might help me rule out some areas since i have limited scouting time. I didnt ask for lat&long, just thought some locals could give general areas, and common local knowledge. I know up here in the north west part of the state we actually enjoy helping others. With that said, I know there are some good people down there, I had some of them pm me. Thanks for the help. I yall are ever up in P.C. I would be glad to help.

    It ain't worth 14hrs of driving. All the sky busters have scared the ducks.
