This is the best day I have ever had duck hunting, we limited out in 2 hours. It was great! South Platte river, near Sterling, CO. My dog was a machine, the water was cold, and the ducks were everywhere.
I have the flambeau sky scraper, i like it alot. especially if you are hunting public land, it really sets your decoy spread out from other hunters. The only drawback is that you cant just chuck it out in the water, so if you are in a hurry to get your spread out, you need to spend a little extra time.
Jim Zumbo, Craig Boddington, Ron Spomer and Wayne Van Zwoll are all solid contributers to the modern hunting literature. Through their gifts (both hunting and writing) they make us better hunters. Whether it is letting us learn from their mistakes or by teaching us new techniques,they help us harvest more game. But I suggest looking to the oldies, the fathers of the outdoor writing craft, to learn tricks that you might have not used.
I chose to shoot the 270 winchester because I grew up...
