Hi! I just moved up to Anchorage in March from Colorado, and looking to get started hunting ducks up here. I have been hunting mostly mallards with a few canadian geese for the last 4 years in Colorado. All of it has been sitting at small ponds, trying to learn how to call them in. So, I am new to AK, hunting marshes and rivers, as well as from boats or ATVs. I have a small decoy spread (12 floating mallards, 12 goose land decoys, goose flapper).
I just bought a 16' Lowe jonboat with a 40hp Merc jet on Thursday. From what I'm reading, it sounds like it might be less than ideal for Rabbit Slough? I took it up 20mile yesterday as a test run, and it ran great! Anyways, I'm looking for either a hunting buddy or someone that would be willing to help me get started up here. I didn't hunt growing up, so everything I know is what I've learned in books, forums, and videos. I am a responsible, respectful hunter that will work hard to earn some kills. Thanks!
