    My pet peeve while hunting is coming to town Friday through Thanksgiving...Brother-in-law. He'll bring all his new gear with the tags still on it and talk a bunch of Duck Commander sh*t, and tell us all about what the DU website says. Alcohol consumption increase predicted.

    Wouldn't ya know the ducks are coming to.

    1. Guys who don't wait until the shot is called (or worse, ignore when told to wait) and

    2. Guys who try to give commands to my dog.

    I had one of those years ago. Haven't seen him around for quite awhile.

    Mostly I guess my pet peeve is myself. My wife is my primary hunting partner. After I make all preparations the night before, and getting all layered up in the AM, making the coffee, loading the dog, we drive the 1/2 hour to our "spot". I set the decoys and as legal shooting approachs the coffee kicks-in and I have to wander off. Brush-tuff waders are very stiff. While I'm gone I hear some toot-tooting on a duck call, no shots. I get back, "Were there birds", I ask?
    "Yes she replies, but I was waiting for you".....Missed the first flight

    I should give up coffee and green chile enchiladas.

    As to giving up my spots. When I first started hunting the MRGV I had an old hand show me some spots that he had scouted for years. I learned to scout my own spots. Will I share? Yes and no. It depends. JD

    I don't know if it was said earlier, but when my dog is in the water retrieving...NO shooting. That is the only rule I have when folks are with me. I don't care if ducks are circling and getting ready to land. You shoot you will be eating my stock end of my shotgun and then be kicking your a$$ back to your truck. Just had one close call and I literally yell...Dog in the water!!!! He took the shotgun from his shoulder.....

    Pheasant Hunting - Sitting on a apprach road at a public access waiting for legal shooting hour, only to have 5 guys show up and park next to you and proiceed to walk in in front of you when there are any number of other spots. Hazards of hunting public ground I know, but not very nice. When the occasionally newby comes along he or she is told you NEVER shoot anything on the ground and we tell them why. Of course we are watching for safety issues as well.
