Love my Avian X greys and Dakota teal mixed in with Higdon Magnum mallards(right now just one pair)and half dozen of Higdon widgeons and few greys,all Texas-Rigged glad I found that style of stringing decoys-clip dem babies on carabiner and use thick black wire tie and they NEVER get tangled and takes seconds to set em up.I likewise have been more than skunked,so bad dat I am bout to toss in de towel,at least for time-being and concentrate on fishing and deer hunting my private club.So far Federal/Public Land hunts are all I have made and only had one where some inconsiderate hunter(Thanksgiving day,of all days)totally screwed us up and was guy with young kid,should be teaching young hunters the RIGHT way to hunt vs endangering us(shot damn coot on water not that far from us)and in retrospect,I should have paddled up on HIM and made him move.Funny part is he made the comment to us that he was looking for a spot to hunt and saw guys all over Marsh facing each other and what he did totally screwed us as we had flock of four ducks headed straight for us and believe he shot damn coot,flaring our flock like nobody's business.I like the fact that we have tons of Federal/Public Land,just need folks to practice not only COMMON SENSE but courtesy.If I get shined by another hunter,that is NOT the welcome,come paddle over here sign!!!Only happened once in Pearl River and when I got shined,simply paddled over 400 yards away(my idea of far enough away but ideal would be bout 500 yards)!!!Hope to shoot a few tomorrow,got Southfork ready to roll,just need ducks to cooperate!!!
