    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">You miss a duck you just wait for the next flock a few minutes later.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">You can shoot the bull with you buddies and be interupted by an oppurtunity to shoot birds. </P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Duck hunting doesn't involve steep hill climbs.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">There's no race to set up on a single duck.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Sleeping in a Finisher Blind is really comfortable. </P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">#1 reason is I've never gotten a tick on me walking somewhere to shoot a duck.</P>

    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Some of the reasons posted are good points, but I am just as addicted to Turkey Hunting as I am to Waterfowling. While Turkey Hunting I get to study a variety of different settings while sitting there as opposed to a marsh or lake.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Dick</P>

    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Because you can't watch a turkey fold in mid air doing mock 90, over your spread.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P>

    <P>Sorry but I have never had a goose honk or cluck so loud at 50 feet that you can actually hear it bounce off of your chest. </P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Plus turkeys taste better than geese. And what else is there to do late April through May besides turkey hunt and mushroom hunt. A winning combination.&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Besides I can carry one to three turkey decoys alot easier 1/2 mile than </P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">50 goose decoys.</P>

    Yeah, and I have warm waterproof camo for duckin. It would be a little hard to climb very many hills in neoprene. I prefer duckin, but it is a thrill to have that gobble vibrate your bones<img src="/images/boards/smilies/eek.gif" border="0" align="absmiddle">

Duckin is alot of fun. From a pure hunting standpoint though not even close. You tellin me parkin some tubs of lard in a boat and motoring out to a blind, throw out some decoys and&nbsp;smoke &amp; joke all morning beats turkey hunting? I suppose dropping a bird out of the sky involves some kind of magic wand too? </P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">OK, how'd you do the quote thing?</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Thanks</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P>

    Turkey hunting is fun don't get me wrong. Just those dang dirty birds seem to get the best of me. Went out yesterday and had 4 toms and 2 hens coming in and just as im about to click off the safety a truck comes down the road and stops to watch. The turkeys of course didn't like this and took off at a sprint towards the woods. Gonna try my honey hole in Belmont county tomorow morning. Same farm where I killed my double beard so hopes are high but we'll see.
