Hi MrkevinD (http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/member.php/39396-MrkevinD),
I have some good spots for duck hunting in the area, but my boat unfortunately gone, so, I'm stranded. If you have a boat we can do it

I'm interested in duck hunting too. I'm a newbie as well. I have almost no gear for duck hunting though. The closest place for me is the Salinas River Refuge (http://www.fws.gov/refuge/Salinas_River/). It's about an 45-60 minutes from San Jose. I do not believe boats are required but some waders are definitely in order.
