Once again we're about to have the duck season open where we'll have an increased number of small boats leaving the launch well before daylight regardless of the weather conditions. To all of the RnR duck hunting readers, please use your best discretion when deciding to depart the launch before each hunt. Make sure all of your equipment is in good working condition, know and follow the rules of the road and don't take any short cuts when it comes to common sense. Wishing everyone a safe and successful season. ARRIVE ALIVE and live to hunt another day.

Good advice Secret,I used to leave the dock to go fishing well before daylight,as most duck hunters do. Its become too congested for me to continue to do so. Not to mention that the old eyes and reflexes ain't what they used to be.

Henry,
Every year and several times a year I see hunters departing in the small boats we use in the pitch dark, wind blowing 15+, no PFD's on, wearing heavy clothes and boots, boat loaded to the max, with and without running lights…and all I can do is pray for them. The least little thing goes wrong, and they'll all become statistics. It's a wonder that it doesn't happen more often.

Apparently God has a soft spot for we fisherman,hunters and other fools that run around before daylight.

I'm glad he does Henry, because I too am one of them, and come Saturday I'll be burning gas a solid hour before sunrise.

Ed,
You are so right. It's like the old phrase; practice makes perfect!…..wrong!!!! Perfect Practice, makes perfect!!!! I know people that have been practicing for years and still don't have it right.

Well, I duck hunted the Mississippi Delta area for almost 30 years, Steeles bayou, Tallahatche River, Coldwater River, Yocona river, Hardin Point. there were no roads and I would burn 6 gallons of gas thru a 9.8 merc a day. I wore out 3 float coats, those were the greatest thing since sliced bread, those float coats allowed no wind thru that floatation, I kept my down jackets in a black garbage bag and would change when I got to where I was hunting. during this time I hunted primarily flooded timber, flooded pin oak flats. and a few bean fields. it was a blast. but we were safe

Ed, you are right again on the float coat. Back in the day i had a camo one that was made by Stearns, that thing was unbelievably warm. I gave it away to my buddy's grandson years ago when he started duck hunting. I think he's still using it.
