There's nothing I enjoy more than duckhunting; every fall I tell myself (and my wife) that I'm going to not cut out of work so much to go duckhunting; but when the wind starts to blow and the skies get blustery, I just can't help myself. I've hunted waterfowl since '68 in Utah, Colorado, Wyoming and Oregon. Been here in Keno since '99 and still learning about the area. I started my career with the U.S. Forest Service and presently work for the Bureau of Reclamation in Klamath Falls, Oregon. I've built two duckboats (sorta looked like modified jonboats) with plywood/fiberglass; Contemplating building another one this summer because I sold mine when I moved here from Utah 3 years ago. I've been active in DU-started and organized two local committees in Wyoming in the mid-80's. I'm always looking for a good hunting companion or just someone to share hunting stories with. I also do a lot of big game hunting (mule deer, elk, antelope). The pinnacle of my big game hunting happened in 1982 when I shot a P&Y record book bighorn sheep in Wyoming-it was the 1st sheep shot with a bow in Wyoming since the early 1900's, when Pope and Young themselves took sheep during a bowhunt in about 1915. What a thrill!
