To the Hardcore 2 Kayakers Duck Hunting Todays Snow Storm
« on: December 30, 2021, 06:50:15 PM »
Well just want to say thanks for setting up one the point right in front of my little bay. Shooting 15 minutes before light. Then 5 minutes before light. As I watch all the birds in range just fly away because you quack heads. Also what the heck is the deal with using a battery powered decoy. When you resetup again across from me it was clear as day. Not even a breeze but your spinning wing decoy was going full bore. Even with that the two of you can't refrain from sky busting. I would say congrats on the few birds you did get but you guys are a joke. What was that 100 to 150 shots between 2 of you. Feel free to take lessons. I am running a .410 with 5/8s oz of #6 and knocking birds stone dead. Yeah after leaving your area and hitting another pocket I slayed it. Give up the constant duck and goose calls. You notice the birds after an hour straight on the duck call and going to goose call for a while to change back to 30 minutes straight on the duck call without stopping got all the birds rafted up on main water. Please take notes about what I am bringing up. Ya you may have got a few birds but come on. Next time I will stop the hunt to come have a chat. Because 3 hours of birds flaring from your calls and sky busting is a joke. Illegal decoys and shooting well before shooting time. Anyways I made some changes later in my hunt and made an awesome day. Limited on ducks, one snow goose, and 2 bonus snipe. Fun time when putting the yahoos aside. Hope you are here reading this. Next time I see this I will post a vehicle and call the warden. Tired of that crap. Yes I know what days you prefer so I am sure I will see you soon.

If your wondering if I am talking about you here is a couple more details about you. You wrapped up in what looked like a white sheet to blend in with snow. 2 hunters. 2 kayaks. Mallard decoys. And you never quit calling. But notice when you do shut up once in a while you actually get birds to come closer to you.
Maturity is when you have the power to destroy someone who did you wrong but instead you breathe, walk away, and let life take care of them.

Wow, you must be sponsored cuz you sound like a pro! You clearly know everything about duck hunting! Maybe it was some kids who don't have a mentor?

It happens to the best of us.  Happened this weekend to me.  I walked over and talked to the guys to see if they wanted to hunt with me.  I was finished birds and they couldnít with the setup they had going.  Some people are receptive to help and some arenít.  Seems like more and more inexperienced hunters out that learn everything from the internet or buddies they run with.  Some have done it their entire lives and others just a few year, so tradition, experience and time afield maybe fairly green.
Cut em!
It's not the shells!  It's the shooter!

You do know they make a wing decoy that runs on a string system and is totally legal right?

I just obey laws. Far from a "Pro". Clearly adults who knew what they were doing. Binos showed them well from a short distance away. Guess this crowd is in acceptance of breaking the law. Shooting hours are there for a reason. Unlawful use of battery power decoys is ok for the intitled. But as stated I guess because I obey laws I am the bad one. I do have a lot of experience in the field. So I guess as far as shooting distance goes I understand lethal distance of a shotgun. A phone which most have or a watch is an easy way to not be ignorant to shooting hours.
As far as the elk woods comments go. Lol yeah have spent many years in the elk woods. And as I did today I adapt to continue to see success for birds to elk. On any hunt no matter how experienced one is mistakes are made. But learning from those mistakes and every outing makes us a better hunter.
I wouldn't have been on here about the calling or shooting deal. But just upset me seeing yet another entitled ignorant group feel that laws are not for them. Everything is clearly stated in the rule book. Best way to learn is starting with the hunting regs.

Of course. This was battery. Not a jerk string wing decoy. They would walk away from there stand to go chase cripples and try to stalk ducks and decoy continued in full motion. Never stopped. I get it. Always defend everyone as no one can do wrong. But I don't run my mouth for no reason.

I have ran many forms of jerk cords over the years. Some basic to very advanced fun to set up jerk cords. Always fun to try new ideas. But have never ran battery powered. For good reason. Not legal.

And in the end I had a great day. No complaints with the outcome of the hunt. Had a blast. Little frustration aside hunting in the heavy snow. Lots of birds. Great shooting. Great scenery. An amazing day.

Right!

So there I was, sitting on MY RIDGE and calling with my bugle and cow call, every once in a while like a pro, you know, locator bugles and cow in estrus calls only. When suddenly some jerk off comes walking out of the forest in front of me! And he's got a hoochie mama tied to the bottom of his boot! Just hitting that thing over and over in step. I can tell by the way he's walking he has no idea this is my ridge. I mean, what is he doing hunting on my ridge? And why is he walking around looking for elk doing challenge bugles? He should be setup waiting for one to come in to his blind! Everyone's an idiot but me... Lol poor guy
