    We use them a lot, just like you said – off to the side of the spread. We don’t get many bluebills around here, but the white on the decoys really increases visibility. Throw ’em out there, they will help

    Did you know the other group? When I first started waterfowling by myself, I down-winded another group and shot ducks going right over my head. The older gentleman (probably about the age I am now) :mrgreen: waded over and asked me if I would like to join his group. I went over and they explained to me about setting up down wind, shooting at swinging ducks and just the ethics of hunting a crowded marsh while sharing a coffee. I learned so much more than if he would have done nothing , or worse, come over for a confrontation. I don’t know his name, but I am thankful to this day that I spent part of a morning in the marsh with him. On the other hand, I have been around people than cut you off on purpose. I hope it was just someone that didn’t know any better. I would reccommend the nice approach first.

    If more people took the time to do this, none of us would have any problems anymore.

    as a side note, it’s funny how many here hate seeing garbage in the streams, think we need to get off foreign oil, are so environmentally concious and think al gore is a complete idiot because he’s on the “other side of the fence”…when in reality all he’s trying to say is the same things you are for the same reasons. he just happens to be a politician.

    And he’s making a profit off of it. That’s the problem I have.

    I think that you and I both agree that we need to look after our world, and clean up the environment. Just don’t scare me into by telling me that the polar ice caps will melt and flood out the entire human race.

    also, higher altitudes are colder, thus the snow in the mountains in summer. it could be 80 in denver and when you got to the top of mt evans it would be in the 40’s there. so not apples to oranges. the one thinking sunday’s high in the low 80’s means al gore is wrong….that’s apples and oranges my friend.

    I’ve been to the Rockies many times, at many different times of year. You can find snow at the top of mountains in warm weather because of the altitude, yes, it is cooler up there, but that’s not the only reason. Ever made anything from a box that includes “high altitude instructions”? Same idea, just reversed.

    and, as i’ve posted many, many, many times…and many of you would know if you did a little research, global warming by definition causes unusual weather patterns.

    Funny how when it gets a little warmer, it’s global warming. When it’s one of the coldest winters on record, it’s also global warming???? And now, apparently, unusual weather patterns are caused by….you guessed it! GLOBAL WARMING 🙄

    Apparently, weather was always predictable and perfect before humans (and Al Gore) came around. Tell that to the dinosaurs, or any living thing that was affected by the Ice Age (global cooling?)

    Believe me, I’m all about treating the environment with care and respect, and we need to keep doing the right thing. But just because some guy gets up there and gets everyone in a panic about the latest thing, then makes millions off of giving lectures and selling “environmental credits”, isn’t enough to sell me on the whole idea. But then again, maybe he’s not trying to sell me, I don’t have a lot of money…………

    Anyone heard from Al Gore lately? Seems to clam up when the weather is cooler than usual and snow in several states this weekend. Both east and west!!!

    81 is cooler than normal? where do you live? you do know snow in the mountains is a normal thing, right? when i lived in denver in the mid-80’s we use to go to the mountains in august wearing shorts and have snowball fights. may want to learn what you’re talking about before discrediting another… 😉

    Apples to oranges…….the snow there is not because it’s cold, it’s the altitude, has nothing to do with GW. And yes, OVERALL, this spring has been cooler than normal.

    I received mine back in ’92. Absolutely, without a doubt, one of the best activities I took part in.

    Hunting in NW Central Iowa. I do not like putting the exact area of hunting locations because I believe it takes away from the advantage to hunters that put time in the truck and out in the field. Not trying to be in a**, thats just how I feel on these forums.

    I totally understand, just like to know the general area of where everyone is talking. Iowa is a big place!

    I am in NW/NC Iowa, and there are several thousand here that came in from the NW??? Hopefully that means they have gone as far north as they want to for the next few days, would REALLY like to get after them Sat. & Sun.
