Hi all, My name is Vick Brown and I live in the far northern part of the sacramento valley. Here in Redding I am located in between the waterfowl mecca'a of The Lower Klamath/Tule Lake national wild life refuge and the rice belt of the sacramento vally. I split most of my hunting between these two areas and a few spots around Redding. I am married to a very understanding ( for the first 2/3's of the water fowl season any way) woman and have three grown sons. Most of my waterfowl hunting has been done without a boat but I do have a 15' colman canoe(too small) that I have used to get past deep waters but I no longer shoot out of it, and all I am going to say about that is thank God for neoprene. I am afraid that I am not much of a traditionalist as I use plastic deeks and calls and my old 870 wngmaster is chambered for 3' shells. I do however love the marsh in the morning and try to get out at least 2-3 times a month durring the season. I have been at this for about 7 years and still consider myself a beginer espically in calling but I am getting better.
