    I'll hear on Monday, but it sounds like i'm on a "short list" for a 3 year job in Homer. Anybody familiar with it? Pros/Cons? Decent duck hunting? Thanks in advance for any input you can provide.

    I've lived there for the past 6 years and don't intend on moving. Duck hunting is good, getting to the ducks is the hard part. ATV for puddlers/geese and a decent ocean boat for sea ducks and divers. NOT many duck hunters in this neck of the woods. Lots of pheasants around with no limit, no season (invasive species, pets that escaped and have done well) HOWEVER, they are mostly in city limits in people's backyard. Lots of info that I can almost write a book, depends on what you want to know. Places to eat, drink, what to expect, places to avoid, fishing, hunting, trapping, taking advantage of the seasons, where/how to get stuff, etc.

    By the way, got an easy 4 inches of snow last night.
