    All these fancy blinds with stoves and everything, cooking these big meals. Especially those finishing breakfast right as the birds show up. You got an outhouse out the back? Nothing like getting up 2-3 hours earlier than normal, pile on big breakfast to pretty well wreck my morning routine.


    I have found that I'm pretty sensitive tho.

    My practice is always light breakfast, big brunch/lunch after.

    Not sure what a good duck hole and eating big breakfast has to do with each other
    But
    We kill 50-90 most days depending on the number in the blind


    But we still have full blown meals just like we are home
    That's most important part of the hunt

    We do some variation of pork pretty much everyday

    My favorite being fried pork chop sammiches w scrambled eggs covered w cheese


    But we fry fish
    Do shrimp boils
    Chicken and dumplings w cornbread

    Smoked sausages w onions and peppers

    Hot wings

    Peach cobbler
    Cakes

    We do it !!!!!!

    Grilled steaks and baked potatoes

    You name it
    We will cook it!!!!!!

    And we go a kill em every day right in the middle of all that eating


    And best part is when you get to that stage of hunting

    When it's time to cook it don't bother a soul to have to cook and miss volleys

    Cause we gonna roll the same way tomorrow

    Why would someone get up so early? Lots of days I sleep later at duck camp than I do at home. And yes most blinds have some sort of facilities available.

    I usually leave the house with a coffee and toast or a PBJ sandwich to eat on the way to hunting (usually a 10-20 minute trip , depending where I am hunting). Most of my hunts are in the field in layout blinds, or on the water in a small jon boat or a kayak, so not many places to cook a meal out there. I might throw a couple of cans of pop and a couple of granola bars or some duck sticks in for a snack, but most mornings I am heading home within an hour or two, so I usually have time to make a good breakfast or brunch when I get home, especially if I am working that morning. I have hunted with a guy who had a slick setup on his duck boat . He had built a small propane oven that had a portable cooktop, and he would cook bacon and eggs and actually bake up fresh buns or pastry right in the boat. Hard to concentrate when you can smell fresh buns baking.

    Here in northern Ky, close to Cincinnati, we have a breakfast food called Goetta. It's a mixture of oats pork and a bunch of other crap that poor Germans could get when they came to the area. Cook some of that in a skillet and throw it im a burrito with egg, peppers, cheese and hot sauce.... ohhhhhhh mamma!!!

    If your referring to days hunting I'm probably close to 50.

    But I'm sure my hunting is different from what most experience. It's mostly mountain hunting. Small creeks and ponds. Pretty much all your shooting is done by 9.

    Being a field hunter, for me it wouldn't feel right NOT getting up early...Getting up hours before legal, prepping blinds, setting out decoys spreads in the field, hanging out for a half hour or so waiting for legal once set-up and just catching up with those we don't see much/napping. Nothing like trying to maximize days and taking only mornings off from work, getting into the office by 1 with no nap and then passing out as soon as you are done scouting for the night, only to do it all over again.

    Wouldn't have it any other way, granted I am young enough it is still fun and my body can handle the 2-2:30 AM wake-up alarms in early September. Generally we are done by brunch at the latest, find breakfast and then have a couple beers back at base before naps and evening scouting. I do have one particular diner that makes a mean loaded omelette, always hits the spot...
