Hi all- new waterfowl hunter here. I am the first in my family to jump in so unfortunately do not have the benefit of learning from generations before me. I am a 27 year old living in Hudson County, and keep my things at my parents house in Bergen County (apartment life...). I got tired of skeet shooting and had a friend that got me into waterfowl and took me on a couple hunts to learn the basics, but he has been hunting more in private clubs in PA where he is from (got me hooked and sort of left me hanging!). I have been on a couple of hunts by myself this season (was at Great Bay Blvd on Saturday and got my first black duck along with a bufflehead). Due to scheduling issues, my last chance to duck hunt this season will be this coming Saturday (1/18) and am just looking to connect with some people and maybe tag along to learn a few tricks. I have 20 mallard decoys and 4 canada goose decoys, canoe, camo burlap and netting for cover, semi 12ga with plenty of shells, and am a good shot. Am willing to travel wherever I need to. Hopefully one of you are going out this Saturday and are willing to let me tag along. Really looking to make some connections, learn a few tricks of the trade, and maybe make a few friends along the way for seasons to come! If not, any suggestions on good coastal spots to drop in with a canoe are welcome as well. Have tried Manahawkin and GBB thus far. Thanks all!
Hi all, Longtime Pennsylvania hunter here, came to NJ and hunted a friend's farm this year for the first time. Managed to snag 3 does over the course of a long weekend and upon his recommendation took them to Hunter's Butcher in Adelphia N.J. to get processed. Unfortunately, I didn't read all the bad reviews and horror stories until after my deer were in his freezer and I was back home in Pennsylvania. I paid $360 dollars for these deer to to processed, had direct email communication with the owner Kitt Schulman about the order. Then nothing. My NJ friend was going to pick up the order for me and he got no text or phone call either. I called him a week or two later, no response. I figured that he was backlogged with processing from the season and put it out of my mind. After about 7 weeks I start to get nervous and tried to make contact again. No dice. I have been calling, emailing, Facebook Messaging him at his Dog Food Company, etc... No response. Today I called the Howell Police department and they happened to have a cell phone number for the guy. They called him and he was apparently "argumentative" and "non-cooperative" with them on the phone. They suggested that I file a police report with my hometown cops and/or take other legal action. While he was on the phone he told the cops he "knew who I was" and my "deer were at the Food Bank". I reached out to Hunter's Helping the Hungry via Facebook but haven't heard back from them. I assume that was the organization he was talking about because he used to link it on his website. His website is now shut down. His business is listed as permanently closed. He is not returning any communication I send to him. I really don't want this to get ugly, but that venison represents over a lot of damn money considering the out of state licenses I bought, modifications to my firearms, the $360 processing fees and time I took off of work. Can anyone offer any advice? Has anyone been in this kind of scenario with this guy before? I'm really not sure what to do next and am really really frustrated. Is the "Food Bank" nonsense worth pursuing? Thanks in advance.
