    Fast Solo hunt

    Killed a limit of drake mallards and woodies in the first 20 some minutes. I guess the planets lined up just right for me this morning.

    Long line shy birds

    During the late season we move to the big river after ducks. Normally the water depth is anywhere from 20-30 foot deep. So long lines is the norm. Only problem we have noticed is that it doesn't take birds long to realize having all your ducks in a row in not a safe bet. Any suggestions on how...

Is anyone willing to share what they have and how they made it. I saw one on a YouTube video by Freelance duck hunting that I really like but apparently it's a...

    New to call making.

    I've always wanted to get into call making. Finally broke the ice and bought a small lathe. I am still having trouble with the insert in getting the sound I like. But I sure can turn out a barrel . For now I've found a couple companies that make inserts besides Echo. Nothing wrong with Echo just...

    First bird of the year

    The area I hunt doesn't get alot of ducks. The early season is time to fill the freezer with woodies and teal. We do see a few different species during the late season but not many that differ from mallards blacks, and gadwall. This bird today was a special bird to start the season with...

    Swimmers or spinners

    Im not a big fan of spinners. I would rather use water motion such as swimmers. What's you thoughts on the two?

    Slotted decoy bags

    My girlfriend got me these from her work. They were going to throw them away. 15 slots. I guess that free is better any day.

    Mallard/Black cross

    Do mallard/black duck crosses seem to be becoming more common? This is the 3rd in 2 years we have killed.

    Patternmaster choke

    I recently bought a patternmaster code black goose. I love the patterns I get out if this choke. I shoot Winchester drylok 3"#2 with great performance. I was at my local gun shop looking to pick up a few boxes of shell to finish the season with,but all they had was black cloud with the new...

    Hocking river valley.

    The area is dead, scouting and hunting trips has produced nothing but a handful of birds. Sure wish we would get a good weather push and send some birds down this way.

    A week ago I was finally able to scratch a bird off my duck hunting bucket list. Over 30 years of waterfowl hunting and I was able to collect a beautiful drake canvasback. Now onto the pintails.
