  1. Best kept secret the National Guard. Having deployed three times and talked with active duty and reserve components from other states nobody has education benefits like the NJ Guard. Not to sound like a recruiter. Pending on the state the education benefits differ. NJ any state funded school is tuition free. And typically you can get a enlistment bonus with additional education stipend. Pending on the benefit its $150-250 a month for the one benefit. Second benefit, pending where the school is located they get the housing allowance for that area. Since NJ has one of the highest housing allowan
  2. Good luck. I have been looking for several years. From what I know is he stopped building them. Whatever is out there is out there. I've only seen two go up for sale and both were sold before I was even able to respond to the ad.
  3. I wont shop there unless I am in a bind and desperately need something to go hunting with the next day. Which even now is pointless because odds are they dont have it either. But I was at the one in Brick around Mid November and whatever it was I was looking for I asked the associate if they had it. They said "We are a little late getting hunting gear out this year but everything will be out by the time the season starts." I laughed and said ok.
  4. Might be talking years ago when they used to do the goose hunts on Edwin B Forsythe refuge at the drive around near Oceanville. I was at a seminar last year where they were talking about possibly opening it back up for Special Goose Season in future. But there was a few hurdles they talked about that I don't see happening anytime soon.
  5. Id bring your license in case they still do that. But I guess its possible they don't because there were several that didn't bring their license and ended up getting into a pretty good argument with them over it. I imagine that happened frequently.
  6. I It used to say in the Hunter Education section that if you completed a field course before you need to bring your license to be able to skip the field portion and only do whatever you are there for. But I would just bring your current license and the required take home test completed. That's what I did when I went a few years ago and all I did was the muzzleloader portion and test and that was with 15 years between getting my resident firearms and muzzleloader license. A few guys at my class didn't have that and they went through the entire thing.
  7. I had a 2011 Yamaha 25 HP Short shaft and sold it for a 2019 25 HP long shaft Yamaha. The new one is almost 50 lbs lighter at only about 140 lbs. The new 4 strokes are smaller and lighter compared to a few years ago. Only issue I had was the dealer installed the fuel line backwards. So it was stalling on me at higher RPMs. But once I figured it out its been flawless.
  8. I wish. But its 2. They're everywhere this year.
  9. They're here. Ill be looking to get some when the season opens back up.
  10. Theyre around. Mainly saw black ducks scouting Sunday. A lot of Mallards in areas that you cant hunt. Going to look Sunday again. Hoping some new birds move in with the storms.
  11. It was dead calm on the bay this morning. No wind, no current. Very little morning flight but the Buffleheads kept coming in 1' sand 2's. Slowly picked away when a couple hundred Broadbills decided to dive bomb into the decoys and ruin our Buffy Bash. Ended up with a our limit of 9 Buffleheads and 3 Broadbills. Only saw about a dozen puddle ducks flying.
  12. All the buffleheads you want on the bays. Less puddle ducks around than a few weeks ago though.
  13. Just came across this article. https://www.poconorecord.com/article/20101119/News/11190341?fbclid=IwAR0qAsjlm5XdlSUXVtDpJpUCxpsdOEMK5_XF7UPk2cueKopm0wQOLCkDU3E
  14. Got this guy on the 19th. Its been a very slow deer season. Haven't gotten out like I have in years past and only seen one doe up until Tuesday. Had a short window Monday got in and pulled cameras. While out I ran into a guy who was hunting the other side of the hill. Didn't know he was there and he had a huge pile of corn. Could explain why all the movement went to night time. But one camera only a few hundred yards away had all day time movement. Made the decision I would hunt there. It also cuts the deer off going to the corn pile from the bedding area. Two good bucks and one we thought had
  15. If you mean track him like GPS...no. If a pet is chipped its a radio frequency ID which is different than GPS.
  16. Was out today with a friend. Managed 3 black ducks, 2 woodies and a GWT. Nice mix of ducks today. Seen a few mallards and Gadwalls.
  17. Its a 2011 25 HP Yamaha 4 stroke, Short Shaft, Electric Start. I have only put about 50 hours on it. All maintenance was done by certified mechanics at either Brys Marine or Baywood Marina. Runs strong and never had any issues with it. Only reason I am selling is bought a new duck boat that needs a long shaft. Asking $1750. Located Brick, NJ
  18. Directions for a wood duck call say "too-weet" is how you blow the call. That is a flying sound. You do that call and the wood duck will look for another wood duck that's flying or get spooked because your making that sound while the decoy is on the water. Here is a youtube video of a Wood Duck on the ground. Way different sounds.
  19. Didn't seem to be at full capacity. The back tent only had about half the vendors it could have fit. The air dog competition was across the street. I remember it being with everything else but I could be wrong. Overall I enjoyed it. I mainly went to talk with the duck building companies. I spent time talking to the TDB, Duck Invader (former Duck Boss), Marty Kristensen about their boats. No real show prices if you were looking to get a deal on some hunting gear. Everything I saw was full price. To me its just a nice get away for half a day, BS with other outdoorsman maybe pick up a t shi
  20. 2013 Duck Boss 13. Selling boat and trailer. Possibly a motor but that’s pending. Motor in the pics is being moved to my new boat. Had a lot of fun but time to plan for the future so I upgraded. This boat is great for 1 person and a dog or 2 people pending who the two are. I hunted regularly two adults with gear and 3-4 dozen decoys. Tight but can be done. Have title for boat and will have to do a notorized bill of sale for trailer. Boat is clean. I ran a 25 HP. Myself, 5-6 dozen decoys plus gear and it would get on plane easily and could cruise around 20 MPH no problem. Can take up to a
  21. I agree with you but sorry my conversation didn't go that in depth. They just mentioned contacting them before they process the violation usually resulted in no penalty. Just pay whatever the toll is and you're good. Common sense would tell you that their would be exception like your case or didn't read the EZ pass but had the funds in the account etc. But this is NJ so give them your money.
