    After hunting with Brian on the guest hunter program 2 years ago, I saw what a great day out in the marsh good be. Seeing birds work like that and seeing how close they'd come was really a sight! Probably one of the coolest things I've ever seen out in the field.

    Very lucky. And just talking with him, you can tell that he is 100% committed and passionate about ducks. A great guy to learn from, that's for sure. I hope one day to know just a fraction of what he knows.

    Had to use your advice this past weekend..Had 4 guys hunting the buffer strip just behind us and down a little bit from our split. Politely asked what field there were in and one said A corn field...:mad:....Calmed myself a bit and told them they were in a buffer and could be shot by someone. .They said OK and moved to the other side of the buffer but still hunted it..They didnt fire any shots after that, as our birds were swinging over there heads to come to our spread..Might of been new to the area but it could of turned out pretty bad for them if we didnt see there spinner...So spinners do work for something. ..o_O

    You have got to be near the top for ducks killed at managed areas.

    you two have so much advantage over others because being local and having network of local hunters. Us on the other hand, enter the draw blind and have no clue where to go. Like knowing which zone next to parking lot is the best.:lol: Bring the kill chart back. We the people need to get together and campaign for kill chart. Let me start a poll see how others think. By the way, those ducks were shot in corn or marsh or flooded timber?

    no, we have the disadvantage of non-locals taking all the best spots not even knowing what they are taking, lol

    What kid said. I live 1.5 hours away. I’ve learned what I’ve learned by experimenting with weird places out there and getting shafted with bad picks. I love people picking prior rd first. Love it. Leaves the door open to sooo many other great areas.

    what good would a kill chart do? So you can see that front row prior is tops in kills? Who cares? Some areas smoked them early season and are dead now. The chart will lead people into dead areas. It’s pointless.
