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

Recommended Posts

Wow lets see... Delta Marsh, Sea Ducks in ME or AK, flooded timber in AR, Argentina, pounding some field geese in Saskatch, I could go on but that's enough dreams for several lifetimes.

Jeepguy, you nailed my dream hunt, sea ducks on the coast, how do they taste?

Fritz, I have been to New Zealand several times and talked about the duck hunting with local people and it seems they hunt them by pass shooting and setting up small decoy spreads in open pastures and grassy slopes, evidently the ducks just bomb right in. The ones I seen were almost totally pitch black, big, and traveled in small family groups. I forgot to ask if they even migrate, with the weather being warm most of the year.

I never got to taste one. The guides tell me they are terrible. Here is what is done with them. The head guide's cousin comes over and breasts them out, then he takes the meat to the local soup kitchen. The breast meat is then ground up with pork sausage and added to soup for the soup kitchen. I wanted to try some but they saud it is unbearable to eat by itself. I guess I could of made that assumption, because when you finally get these 7 lb birds in the boat the stink like fish in a big way.

I just got back from one of my dream hunts up in Saskatchewan! I have one more dream hunt this December in Washington for sea ducks.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
