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.

    • Eaves would have been nice, better to the ducks than someone else. They beat us last go around but we were way better and Gibson won the game by himself.

      Edit: Sounds like the 2nd moves to a 1st in the ducks clear the 2nd round of the playoffs. Not sure I would have paid that price.
    • Wow...Ducks get Eaves from Dallas for a conditional 2nd round pick...pretty cheap rental IMO..where were the Wild on this deal...oh ya we don't have a 2nd round pick 
    • Update:     Put some fresh gas in, sprayed the carb valve with some cleaner and cleaned the filter.  Also adjusted the idle speed up a bit. Runs great again!   Thanks for the advice and help everyone! 
    •   Nope...I think that is an original Bear55 Quote but Yogi Berra would be jealous if he were still alive.   Agree on the Blackhawks...when the season ends they will probably be the favorite to win the cup IMO so it will take an upset by any team to knock them off...would love for the Wild to be the ones to do so....it is getting very interesting as the trade deadline and playoffs time approach!
    • Out here (Virginia) our lakes are dirty and warm, and from what I understand, saugeyes thrive in those conditions. Our walleyes are all stocked since very few of our lakes have suitable spawning habitat and there is little to no natural reproduction.   Really looking forward to catching a saugeye just so I can cross it off my list!

    • Funny, that is the same face I get when I think of people voting for a reality tv star in as president. Worse yet he is some kind of billionaire, like the general public should ever trust one of those guys in public office.
    • More like Yogi the Bear but if I stole his quote my apologies.  Have to get that Chicago gorilla off our back, don't care if they win 4 of the next 5 cups, we just need one and I will be a happy camper.

      I'm not liking that they found some decent youth to play with Towes, we need to pounce before they fill in their gaps with depth and scoring again.
    • I am up to 27 in ND so far.  Waiting for more snow to melt.  Cold weather and deep snow makes the deer really group up out here and makes for easy shed hunting, but is really tough on the deer.  The 4th pic is one from some round bales that the deer were destroying earlier this year.   The biggest I find year to year is generally around that mid 60" range.  And I found that one (first pic) in early Janruary.  So hopes of finding a bigger one this year is low haha.
    • The only Merc I saw in Belize was on a parted out boat 75ft from water. Otherwise it was 70% Yammy's, 15% Honda's, 10% Suzzy's and a 5% hodgepodge of Evinrudes, Tohatsu, ect.......
