I am being as honest as I can with you. It is like crack. It will break you down in more ways than one. You will spend every single day of the season chasing what you just experianced. I tell everybody that wants to get into it that they should save a 1K every year and just go on a guided trip for a week once a year and call it done. Go somewhere nice with lodging, meals, and a good rep. That way you can go wherever the ducks are the week you are avaliable to hunt.
