I was rabid duck hunter up here in NC from abou 10 to mid-thirties. Then one day, pfft..just did not want to shoot anymore. I am pro hunting, love reading about duck hunting seeing the pics, and will eat one in a minute. Blood must follow the knife, however. Anyway, how do you boys deal with snakes, hunting in the warmth? I would probably spend all my time scanning for spread snappers rather than looking for incoming ducks.
