What he said.I've PM'd people many times concerning this waterfowl question you propose.
The best advice I can give you is get yourself into the drawings for reservations up around where you live. Get a ressie and then post for a partner, let them know your situation and go from there.
Other than that look at various duck hunting forums and get familiar with the lingo. Don't go buy a lot of gear, waders, camo you need, sun screen, mosquito spray. Share your ressie and learn.
Actually he said he's a new hunter and wants to learn the ropes. One of the reasons guys don't take noobs hunting is the very issue i mentioned. I won't hunt with guys who scare the crap outta me by sweeping me with the muzzle of their gun. It's a legit concern and the single most important discipline he needs to be aware of. Feel free to disagree and be wrong all you like Julie.I think the OP is clearly asking for advise on how to call waterfowl not to handle a shot gun . one main reason new member don't want to comeback after a few post....
