Don't hate on gummy bears. Or Skittles. Both are delicious in the field.
I used to duck hunt about 50-60 times a year, about half of that was solo hunting. I've hunted with countless people that I've met out in the field, some small groups, others solo hunters themselves.. I've had some good hunts with some duck killin machines, and I've hunted with some guys that don't know which end of the call to blow. But, they've all been really nice folks, and I think I'd hunt with all of them again, if I ever ran back into them.
I've also had pretty good luck hunting with people on forums like this.. Two of my best friends, and probably some of the better duck hunters I've ever hunted with, I met on a forum..
