Rob if you like to spend money on hunting necessities like we all do, here are some items you will want to add. 1. Waterfowl choke for your shotgun  2. Duck calls and lanyard for calls. 3. Blind bag. 4. Neoprene decoy gloves  5. Lanyard to carry ducks if you score lol  6. Floating shotgun case  7. Face paint or face mask. 8. The Finisher duck tool. 9. Waterproof camo clothing. And all of this is assuming you are walking in and retrieving your kills. If you get into a boat and dog you can easily end up in the poor house! Good luck.    valoroutdoors.com

You can usually plant stuff on edges of ponds in mid summer that will really bring.em in later. I like millet. Grows and plants easy.

Already got a lonnnng list of chores for deer season with cutting and some food plots.  Just gonna keep it as simple as I can.  We def have waterfowl there, no shortage as long as the ponds aren't froze up. This year would've been perfect.

I hear that. Once you start dumping them with your buddies it takes over. Youll be watching tony vandermore and habitat flats. Lol It takes me 1 afternoon with a mini tiller and I hand cast the seed preferably before a rain. I have birds to hunt every time I give it a 3 or 4 day rest. Basically every weekend. Don't be surprised if it turns into the same feeling as deet hunting!

I am really looking forward to it. I'm expecting a lot of misses and a lot of laughing at ourselves.

quizzing myself on ducks now everyday so i know which is which.  At least on the basic ones. I also did a chart with bag limits since who the hell can remember all that?  lol total of 6 - 2 mallards (one hen), 1 pintail, 2 black, 2 redheads, 3 wood, 2 canvasbacks, 1 scaup, (hey im remebering this pretty well!) and a partridge in a pear tree.  Not that i think i will have to worry about limits and am most likely to kill one duck at a time if im lucky.... but good to know. Also downloaded a duck ID app.  and have @Otto @The_Real_TCIII and @Lomax on retainer to help with ID and  "should I have shot this duck?" questions......

It works but sometimes it's laughable how much effort it takes to hook them. We have been bringing a little boat. Lol

We have had to use this system in the past. Put some larger treble hooks on the plug and some split shot on the line in front of the plug and it will work better. We have retrieved large Canada Geese doing this. This year my son and I will be using the new system you see in the photo below and I'm looking forward to it.    valoroutdoors.com

Rob, we would sometimes bring a kayak, or if we were going to Happy Valley WMA, we would have our canoe.

We are looking for a real cheap boat before season. There used to be an old rowboat out there. Gonna try to find it and see if it's sea worthy now that the water has gone down.

we checked on the boat this weekend now that the water has gone down.  But the boat is gone.  Was there from duck hunters that used it years ago but they no longer hunt there and mustve taken it with them.  So for now are limited to using a casting pole or wading if they go in the pond. 

We are planning to try using a treestand skirt that Corey bought and make a duck blind out of it.  Gonna try it this weekend see how it goes. 

trying not to invest any more into this until we see how it goes there. Ponds mght be froze over by then and not even worth hunting. We will def not duck hunt til 2nd season which starts Dec 3rd.   Real disapointed they took away those two goose days that overlapped with the late duck season.
