First I'm what You call a New B. Thank you for letting me share about this wonderful sport of Sculling and Decoying. I have been on and off the Water Hunting ducks for 57 yr.
Started my hunting at 15, tagging along in my Gpa's back pocket at around 8 yrs old.
I'm now 72, Decoying a little more then out of my scull. But when I scull it becomes a great day.

On the last hunt of the season, as we were paddling back to the truck. We jumped some ducks. They circled and came right back over us about 45 yds. My hunting partner in an epic display of skybusting, missed three times. I meanwhile, made a spectacular single shot kill on this trophy ringneck hen.

Any suggestions on how to best prepare this feast?

I've seen there are clothing exchanges on the other forums for kids stuff and wanted to see if anyone interested in doing one here.

My boy is 6 and with how quickly they grow it would be awesome to have a spot to exchange clothing with others who also have growing kids. Pass on old stuff..... pick up bigger stuff....

Being a relatively new goose hunter, I’ve gathered, for instance, traditional shell decoys are effective in the late season during extreme cold spells and/or snow covered fields, because it is common for geese to lay down in those conditions, as shell decoys present.
