Then there are the paddle clowns that will drift thru your decoys.....
Respect and courtesy should always be given...
This!!! Was duck hunting and had 2 *** clowns pull up in kayaks 40 yards from where we were hunting. I stood up and started waving and apparently they didn't see me. So we had some ducks working and they saw the bright *** kayaks and the ducks veered away. A couple of minutes later I had a Gadwall come in and I jumped up and stoned it. Went to pick it up and went to have a friendly conversation with those 2 idiots. They claimed that they never saw or heard us. I then replied that they didn't see the blind, the people standing up waving at them, then the 5 dozen decoys in the water just chilling?
Had another idiot kayaker paddle in front of our decoys within 40 yards. He took his sweet *** time passing our decoys. If you are going to disrupt someone's fishing or hunting at least do it in the least disruptive way, ex. Don't go slower than a snail when you are passing in front of a duck hunters spread, have a sense of urgency. If there is room to go around them then put the little extra effort it takes to go around.
I had 1 kayaker that was very kind and paddled in front of us about 100 yards away. From a safety standpoint and a good sportsman's standpoint it makes sense to be courteous to our fellow outdoorsman.
If you were kayaking or wading would you appreciate it if a boat burned right through where you were fishing?
