    Live in Redcliff in SE Alberta. Am re-discovering water-fowling the last few years. Duck hunting was one of my first hunting experiences along with upland birds. Got away from ducks for a number of years but a chance encounter with a Delta Waterfowl biologist rekindled my interest. I was in the Canadian Armed Forces for 26 years but retired in 2006.

    I got really drunk and somehow ended up in Key West two nights ago. No snow geese to be seen. I was disappointed. Florida drivers are terrible. No turn signals, drifting in and out of lanes, and accidents everywhere.

    In previous week, I enjoyed a cruise down to Honduras, Belize and Mexico for a week, to get out of the cold weather.

    If you are looking for Canadians, check the snowbird parks in Texas, Arizona, and Florida.

    Seafood was great. Prices for accommodations were on the high side. Roach motels were $400 a night and we shared a condo with 2 other couples and it was around $700 a night.

    Temps last week got down into the low '60s in the Keys, so I imagine the whole east coast was cool.

    Met one other duck hunter on our trip, and we are going to keep in touch about doing a Nunavut snow goose hunt in August. Life is an adventure.

    From the Maritimes here, still enjoy getting out on a good old duck hunt. My dog has been retired for 3 years now, soon going to start training a new one with my daughter.

    Hi,

    I am from Southwest Quebec. I hunt mainly the field and marshes along the St-Lawrence river for Canadas, Mallards and Black.
    I own two black lab that keep me in hunting mode all year long. I am looking forward to have them work on snow geese if ever the spring reaches us this year.

    regards,

    Serge

    Originally from Ontario. Grew up on the shore of Lake Ontario seeing massive rafts of divers as large as 15,000 + birds as a kid. Watched the scull boat hunters ply their trade off Port Weller(entrance of the Welland Canal). By the time I was old enough to join in it was only a matter of 2-3 seasons before the bluebill flights all but disappeared. Then at 18 we moved north to the North Bay area and I was there until 2012 when I headed west. Now living on the SK/AB border in prime duck and goose country. This will be my 37th season as a licensed waterfowler.
