Default 2021-2022 Duck Hunting Thread

I hope this hasnít been done yet and if so please delete!! Who is getting hyped up about this coming year!! I sure am! This year will be my labs (Bonnie) second year and my girlfriends lab (Sadie) first year! They have both been trained by Nick Stillwell with Run&Gun Adventures and are stone cold machines when it comes to duck hunting! Also, I recently bought a boat to broaden my accessibility to different areas. My 2 sons and I will try to hit it hard this year. Both are very new to duck hunting and extremely excited for the drawing and to hunt some public and private spots this year!

Anyway, please feel free to post away with your hunts, kills and experiences! Iím really looking forward to hearing your stories and seeing some great birds on the ground!!! Keep your eyes to the skies ladies and gentlemen!!

I have some good pics of Bonnie with some ducks sheís retrieved but cant get them to load

Yep we normally have a thread every year for duck hunting. I'm looking forward to it, but I think it will be a tough year with duck numbers way down.

I do have a seaduck and brant hunt scheduled for January in Massachusetts. I'm looking forward to that. I should get 30-40 hunts in this season.

Hopefully we will have some come in this year but I dont think the numbers will show up till the second split unfortunately. Good luck with your hunt!! I would love to do that some day! I will be hitting the Texas coast a few times this year so Iím excited about that!!

I’m pumped going into my 3rd season, got a new pup but he won’t be ready till next year. Have a hunt planned in the panhandle and other than that it’ll be public land.

It will work for that & the federal guy definitely enforces the HP rule.

Hows the smaller prop push that boat? Been looking into getting surface drive but the 9" prop rule kind of has pushed me away.

it still runs right at 20 with one other hunter in the boat in shallow water. The boat is a skinny 1846. Honestly the areas I hunt dont get hammered on the 9inch prop rule they mostly pay attention to the safety gear, limits and license and of course the 25hp and under, Just depends what game warden is working the area, Years back when it came out the use to wait at the ramp with a tape measure and measure props, now its like they dont even look at the prop. I carry my big prop with me and swap out also, I have a long deep run that is purely intercoastal with no 9inch regulations .

I'm looking forward to it my self this year. Going to take Blood Trail and his son out on one of my hunts this year. Might even do another North Texas TBH group hunt pending conditions. Last one was in 2009.

The fish are biting, and there's hogs to be kill-t. Gotta go!

Just picked up my new Can-Am Defender Max HMR yesterday. We've already put new wheels and tires, and tonight going to put some bigger fenders. Fired up for this fall.

Related to your post, I ordered the slim fender flares for my Can Am when I got it and that was a massive mistake.

There is a can at group on Facebook and they found a site you can get them for 18-20$ each and then snag the needed hardware at Home Depot. Iíll see if I can find it.

Alright...

Looks like the are the regular ones that come on the XMR's. I only had 2 of the 4 needed. S1 for all 4 you will need:

705011518 (Front Left)
705011519 (Front Right)
705011520 (Cargo "Rear" Left)
705011521 (Cargo "Rear" Right)

Hope that helps.

I'll try to get some pics to post tonight. I got the Can-Am extended fenders. Let me tell you, the rear is in two parts, and installing the front part of the rear fenders is a b!tch. You have to modify it to fit on the XMR because of the aluminum rock guards, and getting in there to tighten the bolts is for people with far more flexibility than me. Just that part was a 2 hour affair.

I'm in NE Texas so about as far away from you in TX I could get but if you'd ever make it here anyway I'd love to take you up on that offer.
Me and a buddy of mine are going into our third season this year but neither of us had any experience or anyone to show us and mostly hunting public land we are having limited success. If anyone ever wants someone to hunt with we'd love to tag along and maybe gain some more knowledge as well.

Well, sometimes it's nice watching stuff that's over 3/4 miles away at my age, like gulls and turns picking the left overs from stripers hitting top of water, diver ducks feeding out in the middle of the lake, hogs or is it dogs out on the beach, whos that people in that boat question (which I carry binoculars when I'm fishing too), or who is that in the blind half mile or more away? And sometimes it's just nice to sit and watch various types of shore birds closer. Lots of reasons to keep some binoculars handy in the boat, the truck, and at home.

I hunt big water inland most of the time.

I hunt big water inland most of the time.

The fish are biting, and there's hogs to be kill-t. Gotta go!
That makes good sense. I was genuinely curious. I have a good pair in my truck and another pair on the porch so I can get to them quickly if I need to see something. Iím definitely a bino fan.

I typically only hunt for an hour and half or so every morning so Iím a minimalist in the blind. If we go to the woods, you canít see anything anyway and really Iíve never felt like I needed them in pits. I think Iíd just get frustrated if we werenít shooting much and I could see a couple thousand sitting two fields over! 😂
