Well, here we are again. It is the most anticipated week of the year for duck hunters in Northeast LA. We are on the cusp of yet another season and anticipation is high due to the early cold fronts. As we begin to get all of our gear ready, it is important to not forget about arguably the most important piece of equipment….your shotgun.
All weekends are nice, but when your wife tells you that she wants to go archery hunting, now that’s special.
My wife, Paula, shot her bow with me for years in the yard but never actually hunted. Mainly because we had a daughter at home. Well, the daughter is grown, so Paula has decided that she wants to archery hunt now. Last year, she got backstraps so she’s hooked.
My time at Seven J Outfitters in 2019 has come to an end. Like always I like to use my flight from Rapid City to Dallas to really reflect on the week. As I type this, I don’t think the magnitude of the week has fully set in. In my 6 years of coming here, this one without a doubt has been the best and not just because of the deer hunting.
Just calling is not enough.
To look realistic to ducks, you need decoys and calls. It would be troubling to have a Gadwall sound without a visual. It seems unnatural for the duck to hear the call but not see the duck with the sound.
For over 40 years of building duck calls, our goal has been really simple— to sound exactly like a duck. We continue to manipulate parts of the calls to get the sound more “ducky”. Whether you are a beginner or just prefer a call that's easy to blow, we have a great selection of calls that sound "ducky" but won't leave you gasping for air.

Yesterday Delta Waterfowl and Ducks Unlimited released the 2019 Waterfowl Breeding Population and Habitat Survey numbers. This is a report that us duck hunters look forward to seeing each and every year. To some folks it is almost as anticipated as opening day. I know I for one look forward to it because it seems to give a snapshot of we can expect for the upcoming season.

This weekend I had the opportunity to do something that I had never done. I got invited to come fish some North Arkansas streams for smallmouth bass. When this opportunity arises, you take it. I was pleased to be sharing fishing camp with my wife, Godwin, Jeff Smith, WE Phillips, and the Summitts...
