Hi my name is Chad Eidson I am 17 years old and live and hunt in Eastern Washington. I live with my parents and younger brother. I have a golden retreiver name Ginger that is a great duck and goose dog. We do all of our hunting for puddlers(mostly mallards) and geese. We hunt public land in the Columbia Basin area and occasionally the Columbia River. We hunt with a aluminum canoe and a 16 foot Starcraft semi Vee boat depending on the area. I shoot a Mossberg 500 pump synthetic stocked shotgun for ducks and geese. I love hunting ducks over decoys and especially calling ducks in. I have recently got into contest calling and really enjoy that as well. I am lucky enough to have a dad who is as hooked on hunting as me and a mom who is very understanding. So we hunt every weekend and most of Christmas break and all other holidays. Washington is a great state to live in with tons of birds long seasons and generous limits. I have recently gotten into big game hunting for Deer, Elk and Bear but it doesn't take the place of duck hunting. Thats about all on me.
