  • Hay Flats and Morons

    Was out there Saturday, and two morons/poachers were running around in thier lil 14 jon boat shooting ducks on move and it appeared with Guns that had the plugs removed. We had packed up and were leaving the pond and they had gotten within about 100 to 150 yards from us and a mallard jumped inbetween them and our boat. I saw the lead guy in the front of the boat pulling on the bird and we hit the deck - he definately saw us, and i definately said a few words, but they didnt hear me because thier motor was running.

    He shot 2 or 3 times and sprayed us with pellets on one of the shots.

    I know the boat, the motor etc but i dont know the guys - however - sooner or later they will be reported to the Feds/State.

    There was two other partys in that area of the lake that i would appreciate talking to. Please PM if you hunted Duck lake on Saturday between 9am and 1pm - South Side. I wont sit by and just let this go. It was dangerous, it was illegal, and it has to stop.

    Thanks

    Were you hunting with Greg and his dog Trapper? Greg told me about getting hit with the pellets.

    That has got to suck.

    You guys should have the feds and troopers check them out. I don't think they go on that side of the flats very often.

      I was out of the flats by about 9:30 or 10am on saturday so I may have missed it, but I'd be down for asking around and seeing what I can find out. Bunch of idiots are ruining our spot.

      I've been hit with shot many times before.. worked at a shotgun range... that **** stings... I'll post if I find anything out.

        Thanks

          When you guys find out who they are and I sure hope you do, I would really like to know their ages. Not that it matters but what happen to you guys and what you witnessed totally is disgusting. Give it all you got.

              What did you just sit there and take it? Spray me with pellets and you better have something to make you vanish real quick.
              If idiots like that get away with it once they'll do it again, hopefully they will be caught the next time.

                Was out there sat. Talked to a few people but never heard anything about it. Were they dayhunters or camped out. where on the lake did this happen and where did you, they come in at. Knik or palmer rabbit slough.
                I know two wrongs don't make a right But I would of shot back and not as a warning. There has been a lot of Bull s*** going on out there this year and it needs to stop!

                  I sent AK Ray an email on who these guys are, at least one of them as his truck has his company name on it. Dont want to post it publicly as I wasn't there on Saterday, but we've seen these guys do the gunnin and running before, lots of times. There were two boats with this crew, and they normally set up a camp on the knik river side. One of the boats and its occupants have been going out there for years (and have witnessed them running around blasting at ducks a lot), the other group in the other boat weren't familiar, but they were together so they know each other. We've had a rash of thefts on the knik side this year, and we think they may be responsible.

                    Cooler heads should prevail

                    I have contacted a Trooper that is a friend of mine, and will be talking to the Feds this week.

                    I might be going against the grain here, but i doubt shooting back would have solved anything other than more gunfire - no thanks - I have a family to support and children I love, I wasn't about to be part of the problem - we just hauled ass as fast as we could and bailed. I believe this was that camper crew, but i dont know for sure. I was hunting the South East Arm, Knik R side, and I've been in contact with at least one other that witnsessed the same.

                    The Thefts are BS and I wouldn't put it past this crew that was out there - hopefully they wont be back

                    Hopefully they are reading this board and are aware people know of thier actions.

                    Hopefully they can be caught

                      They will be back, they have been there for years and really trash the place with their camp. They really tarnish duck hunters images.

                      Cutter, this was the crew I was talking about in my e-mail to you.

                        yep, I think we all are talking about the same group of guys. They've been going out there for a long time and are generally pigs. They leave trash out at "their" camp and generally are slobs. It "appeared" that they packed up for the year as they took their tent down (left all the garbage of course). But you never know. IF these guys are responsible for the thefts, they will be using a bunch of G&H widgeon and gadwall decoys (with my name on the bottoms of many of these), a pair of G&H floater canada goose (also with my name on the bottoms) and some new avery mallard decoys. Which will be fairly noticable with this group as they decoys they normally use are trashed out old carrylites and flambaeus with little paint on them.

                          It will be interesting to see if the thefts stop now. Have you been out this week to see if anything else is gone. I am due to lose a few!

                            Stuff like this makes me angry. hopefully the troopers will do something but more than likely it is the new trooper I dealt with this year on an illeagal moose.

                            Nothing happend.

                            I think your best bet is 12 gauge slugs into the boat when it is empty. Make the jerks walk out. And have to explain what happend and why.

                              If you shoot at someone, YOU will go to JAIL!!!

                              Getting hit with pellets while bird hunting is
                              just a fact of life. It mostly depends if they are
                              flying at you horizontally or vertically (side-ways or up and down,
                              that is) But one thing is for sure, if you level off on someone
                              in retalliation, YOU will go to JAIL if you are caught. Best
                              advice is to pick, go home, call the cops. Get on the cell
                              phone and call right there, don't get a load of "cyber-courage"
                              and start making claims on the internet that could put you in
                              a bad spot in a court of law.....
                              Couldn't sit by and read this without having to comment.
