I know after watching last night's episode of Duck Dynasty thousands of "new" hunters will be on the lake. :roll: There was so much duck hunting on that show, after all we did see a dead duck. :lol: :lol: I did get a few laughs out of it, as did my entire family. As predicted, all the new hunters are gone. The ramp at Waterfront has 2 duck hunter's rigs there right now. I guess the weather squashed their hopes and dreams. :lol: Just so you know, this is how it has been for the last 34 years. Each season has some newbies and idiots that join the sport. They learn the hard way or they go away.

SOME NEW COMERS MAY HAVE A BETTER SPOT THAN MOST IF YOU GIVE THEM A CHANCE

So you came out of the womb calling, killing, scouting ducks? It's asinine to have that attitude....the problem is not new duck hunters. The problem is they aren't taught the correct way. They have to screw crap up for everybody because morons like you won't take them and teach them the right way.

There are pros and cons to taking "new" hunters.

I've had the taking new hunters thing bite me in the arse in the past. I take them somewhere that few others have knowledge of and the next year , everybody and there brother knows of it.

On the other hand, as Richard said, if you dont take them and teach them, they are going to go anyway. Then you are really screwing yourself over.

But that being as it may, I used to take new people all the time. Now I rarely take anyone new. There are a few exceptions ofcourse.

I understand what everyone is saying. I do watch Duck Dynasty and maybe that is why I have gotten interested in duck hunting. I have never been duck hunting and I have a buddy that is going to introduce me. I would think that as lovers of the sport you would be excited that Duck Dynasty has brought interest it. Free publicity so to speak. If it gets men and their sons away from video games and into God's creation then it can't be a bad thing.

You would think -- but this is a selfish sport if there ever was one. Part of the issue is one rotten apple can spoil the bunch really does apply here. I am new the sport too -- it is a blast. HUGE learning curve, but then again if it were easy..... Stick with it keep your head down (literally) and you will get the hang of it!

Ironcially - No one ever acutally hunts on that show!!! and why didn't everyone start croc hunting. There is another show that actually shows people catching crocs!!

Hold everything, how/where/when, I have a friend with a flat bottom boat, I have a old .22. I am certain I have a large trebble hook somewhere and I have a lot of anchor roap. I need some old overalls, but that is easy enough. I am in...
