Had an awesome time at the Sportsman's Show,went yesterday with Wifey and two of my Abita KC buddies and I gravitated towards the out-of-state duck guides(not sure if they can live up to the promises!!!)and on more than one instance,I made reference to Migratory Alterations,and the guides most definitely looked like they knew exactly what I was referring to!!!One gent did say that his service,not gonna mention particular Guide Service,averaged 17.9 ducks/blind and my obvious next question coulda been how many hunters/blind did it take to achieve 17.9 ducks???I did not question this fellow and did not want to put him through the wringer but I hope and pray that his service booked quite a few hunts and if they can average 17.9 ducks with three hunters,that would be awesome but an educated guess would be that they had more than three hunters/blind.All in all,we had a great time,chatted with NO Fly-Fishing club,picked up very nice ultra-light South Bend rod and matching Daiwa ultra-light spinning reel(can't wait to christen this fine lil jewel),and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the folks with me likewise enjoyed their time at de 'Dome!!Heard Spillway slowly being closed and hope and pray that ole Lady P rights herself,pronto!!!

We were disappointed in this Sportsman Show. We thought there would be more waterfowl hunting offers. Not looking for boats, tractors, God forbid in the summer seeing another lawn mower!

Talked to some nice vendors, and Wildlife and Fisheries was informative but what we were looking for was not worth the price of parking and admission.

Guess we are spoiled by the Gonzales spring show. We will limit our patronage to that one as it seems to get bigger and better each year.

ogre1,Might actually be a very good thing that they were only a few waterfowl hunting offers as there have been some serious possibly permanent alterations in Migratory Patterns(look up hot cropping at your leisure)and check into Flyway Federation and perhaps you may want to attend a Town Hall Meeting in your particular area.I liked the Show as there are way too many 'hustlers' trying to tell us that their particular area(not LA based)always holds more than the typical share of birds!!!Consider yourself lucky if where you hunt limits or close to limits are the norm and not the exception!!
