Wanting to learn to duck hunt.

Wanting to learn to duck hunt.

Postby WVHunter » Sat Nov 02, 2013 3:48 am

I've always had a rule in my hunting career; if I don't eat it, I don't kill it. I had never tasted duck before and therefore never had much interest in duck hunting until my best friend fixed some for my dad and me this past Christmas. I did a "V-8" face-palm and asked myself what in the hell have I been missing. After that, I vowed to get a decent bird gun (all the shotguns i currently had didn't have removable chokes) and bag some of these delicious birds. I set a goal for a couple years.

Fast forward to this spring.

My uncle, who was an avid hunter and a second father to me, passed away. Two weeks after the funeral, my cousin calls me and tells me I need to come up there, that my uncle Turkey had left me something. So that weekend I drive up to her house. She's all tears and happy to see me (she lost both parents in a matter of 3 days) then proceeds to hand me a felt gun case when suddenly my heart stops. Inside was my uncle's most prized possession: his Browning 12 ga. 3" Mag A5 Gold Trigger.

So now I not only want to bag a few birds for the table this Christmas, but to honor my uncle's memory as well. The problem is, I don't have any decoys, dogs, or experience with tactics to plan a successful duck hunt.

I would really appreciate it if someone would let me come on a hunt with them and learn the ropes.

Much appreciation,

You should be able to find some good spots close to Coffeeville we hunt grenada lake some. Get up with me later and maybe we can go one day. And just so you know we don't do the fancy blind business with the big screen tv, bbq grill, central heat and air and high pile carpet. We more like a redneck dove hunt except shooting ducks. One time we will be leaned against a tree in flooded timber shooting wood ducks flyin 875 mph or standing chest deep in a beaver slough next time. But we do have fun every time.
Im just a dirtbag that lacks the necessary skills to hunt like a real hunter, so I just sit in a tree for a few hours in the morning and evening.
