Dream Waterfowl Hunt...where would u go if u could?

32 posts in this topic

Me................

I wanna watch the sun come up and hear the rush of wings coming into the "secret" decoy formation. I want to breathe the crisp autumn air and feel the recoil of the 3.5 shells exploding toward their targets...and the subsequent splash as one of God's creations falls swiftly back to earth.........The satisfaction of a good hunt with good people and knowing you were handy enough with the steel that you shall eat well tonite.......

all In Dan Z's boat!

I would love to make a trip to Canada or Argentina. I have seen some hunting shows that have great hunt in both places. Unfortunately my check card tells me to stay in the Fly way of South Dakota for a mixed bag hunt of ducks, geese and of course pheasants.

I would say in New Zealand I hear it's absolutely phenomenal there. The other spot I would want to hunt is somewhere on the NE coast hunting sea ducks.

I can't decide but I think I'd lean towards somewhere in a very remote part of Saskatchewan or Alberta where the birds weren't decoy shy, there wasn't another hunter for 10 miles, the landscape was large and very panoramic, and birds everywhere. Whew, I think I need to sit down for a minute. Cool!

I got a chance to go to Maine and hunt sea ducks last November, it was a blast, but man are those Eiders hard to kill. A lot different than hunting here is Minnesota.

Back up in the Oak Hammock in Canada. I was there 7 years ago, and don't know why I haven't been back.

Here's a link to a live camera that's on the reserve all the time. You can zoom in and out and see what's active at the marsh all the time. It's actually really helpful. If you watch it every day, you can tell when the migrations are leaving, thereby telling you when abouts they'll be in our area, since this is pretty much straight north of us.

Did you do it through a guide or someone you know? Have any success?

Yea, I went with a Guide service called Penobscot Guide Service. I will try to post a picture (i need to figure out how) and they are a little grainy because I left my digital on the charger when I left for the airport and had to settle with some throw aways I bought at a rite aid pharmacy at 2 am somewhere in new hamshire on my way to maine from boston. Anyways, it was nice because I got to go along with my uncle and it was sponsored by the corporation he works for. We were setup for 3 days of hunting. Day 1 was awesome, limits by noon. Day 2 was so-so, and day three the weather turned dangerous so we could not even venture out.

Though it's not incredibly exotic, I really liked The Pas when I was there 9 years ago. Hunted some really neat places up there and met some really good people. I need to get back there one of these days.

Argentina would be my choice for dream trips. Oddly enough, I had several Latin American and South American co-workers out for dinner last night. One was from Argentina, but I doubt she knew much about the duck hunting.

    • It's a fat chick too! Nice pictures eyeguy!!
    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
