Get the little ones involved

Here is an excellent link to an article from Brian Gehring.  He talks about getting other people involved in duck hunting and how much fun it can be to introduce someone to the sport.

September – Back to School, Football and . . . . Doves!

In most parts of the country, the air is starting to change.  Children have returned to their normal class schedule.  Football teams are kicking off their new season.  And the opening of DOVE SEASON is here!!!  Patient hunters who have been waiting for months to fire at some quarry finally get a chance to unload that pent up frustration.  Here is a link to an article from Gary Howey that gives some tips about setting up for these elusive birds.

Great Article on Scouting for Ducks

It is the first day of September and there is a lot of excitement in the air.  People are predicting how their favorite football team will perform, dove season will open in just a few days, and of course duck season will be here soon.

Many people enjoy duck hunting but sometimes it can be quite a disappointment when there are no birds in a spot they have dreamed about for days.  Check out John Pollman’s article on scouting year round for ducks.
