I went out Tuesday and spooked about 50 geese off the water setting up my decoys. I had to break ice 3 times in 3 hours because they kept freezing to the waters surface. (central IA 16 degrees). All I saw were geese all morning and they were giving the lake a wide berth. My first duck hunting season was fantastic we had 3 great hunts and just one not so great hunt. I’ve been trying to relive that since then. Watching the ducks circle the spread, watching the dog work, and seeing the ducks commit are some of the most amazing experiences I’ve had hunting.nahdoggParticipantDecember 13, 2017 at 4:02 pmPost count: 212nahdoggParticipantDecember 5, 2017 at 4:28 amPost count: 212
my neighbor went out with a group of 10 and they bagged 10 deer near mount pleasant, he said that he was shot at 3 times but a guy in a tree stand 30 yards away. Apparently he was close to the fence line but not over. either way police and co was called. one of the guys in his party was a cop. waiting for an update.nahdoggParticipantNovember 4, 2017 at 5:44 pmPost count: 212nahdoggParticipantOctober 31, 2017 at 4:02 pmPost count: 212
I bought some out of the bargain cave at cabela’s for about 40% off sticker price they were allegedly returned mail order waders. I’ve never been able to get out for early duck/goose so all my hunting usually takes place below 40 degrees. I wouldn’t dream of buying anything thinner than 5mm because I hate being cold. That said I did hike a mile in to get to my spot this last weekend and found that the 5mm limited my movement and had me pretty close to a lather by the time I got there. If you’re sitting still in a boat I think you’d be glad to have the extra thickness. I’m also hoping that the greater thickness means some level of durability.nahdoggParticipantOctober 16, 2017 at 3:04 amPost count: 212nahdoggParticipantOctober 8, 2017 at 2:01 amPost count: 212nahdoggParticipantOctober 5, 2017 at 1:24 pmPost count: 212
It really depends on the hunt. For upland most any clothes work but I try to avoid things that will be more prone to pick up burrs and stickers. I prefer taller boots to help keep stuff out of my shoes but I’m going to try gators this year. I’ve hunted upland from opening day in pants and a t shirt with a hunting vest and cap to multiple layers, carhart, and stocking cap. For squirrel and rabbit I’ve just tried to be comfortable and concealed, I have a camo compression shirt that I wear and like that. For ducks I am usually out in late season and it’s cold and windy and rainy. I wear many layers and try to have wool in most of them. Most hunting I do is when it’s cold so that usually means doing my best to stay warm and dry. Layers are great because you can shed or open up if you’re getting to warm walking hills. I especially like a thick wool scarf I have because I can feel much warmer or cooler by taking it off or wrapping it up higher. The hunting clothes I’ve spent the most on are better boots and a pair of waders. Everything else is just my normal wardrobe with a small number (2) in camo.nahdoggParticipantSeptember 29, 2017 at 9:37 pmPost count: 212nahdoggParticipantSeptember 25, 2017 at 6:39 pmPost count: 212
My brother got one last year. Made some great memories hunting with my brother and father for the first time. This year I had two friends that bought apprentice licenses because they hadn’t had time to finish hunters ed before opening day. It’s a great program with one small drawback. My buddy who bought one was about 70% through hunters ed and can’t upgrade to a full hunters license after completion without paying the full fee. I think they should allow upgrade for the cost of a reprint. The other friend had never hunted in his life and on a whim said he’d like to go out for dove season he had 2 days notice and no time for hunters ed so he went the same route.nahdoggParticipantSeptember 22, 2017 at 4:08 pmPost count: 212nahdoggParticipantAugust 20, 2017 at 12:54 pmPost count: 212
I think the rules on Medicaid are too loose. I had and engineer friend who made bank and because his wife wasn’t on his policy and she was low income Medicaid paid for her birth and after care for a year. If you decline to cover your spouse on your group policy the state (me and you) should pick up the tab.
