Duck hunting etiquette - WWTOBD?


So this morning I was set up to on the bank of a local lake to shoot passing birds. Around 7:15 I hear voices drifting from the mouth of the cove, including some dumbass making gunshot sound affects. A mudboat then appears from the fog headed towards me loaded with people. I shine the spotlight towards them (even though it is daylight by now, but they do see me) and they keep coming on, eventually driving right in front of me and setting up around the bend in the back of the cove about 100 yds away. As the boat passes by I hear the lead moron talking about 'the Mojo.'

What would have been the proper response?

1 - Public water - deal with it.
2 - Shoot the boat
3 - Skybust everything for the rest of the morning
4 - Other?

Sometimes I really dislike other duck hunters.

And act like a damn idiot to boot. I would make calls sounding like woody wood pecker and shoot at anyhting that was in sight.

If people don't respect you enough to get some distance then I sure as hell won't respect them.

I had the same thing a few weekends ago. Surrounded by 3 groups on the bank and I was in a perminate blind in the middle of a cove...shot the only wood duck that made it over the water.

I got peppered on every shot...I need to bring a huge white flag and wave that bastard every time birds start in or a fog horn.

Annoying

Yeah, that is basically what I ended up doing.

If it happens again though I am going to start calling non-stop and shooting at birds no closer than 400 yds away.

Had the same thing happen with some birdwatchers in a canoe. I was so very very close to putting a 3 1/2" shell across their bow.
