I thought I'd be the first to remind everyone about keeping their favorite duck hunting spots closely guarded. As the waterfowl opener gets closer the Internet scouters will be out in force. It's easy to fall into wanting to help someone new to the area, or just new to duck hunting, to find a spot to hunt ducks. However, too much detail eliminates their need to scout and learn for themselves. I didn't grow up here or have spots handed to me...I had to scout and learn after I moved here. I'd hate to go back to combat duck hunting like where I came from.
From Anchorage it's pretty easy to find the general areas. Drive an hour or so north or south and start looking for marsh. From there you have to put in the time and learn the bird movements and favorite spots. Specific details or inadvertant pictures showing familiar landmarks will only invite more competition for those of us who put in the time. If you want to have shot rained down on you or have someone with a kazoo trying to call off birds locked onto your spread go ahead....give away the details. Also, use caution as to which friends you take...you might find yourself beaten to the blind next time you go by your "friend" and his friends. If nothing else please use the PM function rather than just posting here where everyone can see the directions to your's or my spot.
Just remember....there is a big difference between waterfowlers and duck shooters. Waterfowlers enjoy all the challenges of the game and aren't just interested in pulling the trigger.
Heavy straps for everyone!
