View Full Version : Where are you going opening day

I know it's early, but where do yall think you will be hunting opening day of duck season this year? If the swamps stay good at my club I will hunt there and if not I will probably hunt Lake Hartwell. You can never be too prepared you know, lots of planning, etc... :bounce: The decoys are rigged, steel shot is sitting by the gun, can't tell I've got it bad can ya? :banana:

Hoping to go to SD in October. Just waitin on them to set the dates. November around here means mainly swamps and woodies till it gets colder up north

Whats wrong with a swamp and some woodies??? Seriously I hope I can get some mallards into my swamps this year. I hope to go out west before long myself.

Not a thing wrong with woodies other than its pretty much over 10 minutes after sun up. When the weather kicks in right, I will be out all day

I'll be heading to a power co. lake in N.W. Ga. They have one lake that they let duck hunters in and you can get some early season wood ducks but after that it's all crows until the last two weeks of goose season and you can usually lay down a hand full of Canadians.

Well looks like the trip to SD is out for me this year. But God was smiling on me yesterday. Met up with a guy from Memphis who has a pit blind in AR and gave me a serious open invitation to be his guest this upcoming season. Thank you Lord

06-21-2005, 08:21 AM
That's awesome. I am itchin to take a trip somewhere, but I aint sure where.

06-21-2005, 10:52 AM
I hope to go to Arkansas opening week, around the Jonesboro ,Blytheville area. A buddy is lining up a pit blind along with some other areas that we have hunted in the past. Can't wait!! :cheers:

I heard there was some pretty good hunting around that area. A guy I know leases a pit there but he said that last year was the worst year he ever had in that area. Hopefully for you it will be better this year. Remember, SHOOT 'EM IN THE FACE. :shoot:

06-21-2005, 02:07 PM
Their worst year is still alot better than most areas here in GA. Plus it is a chance to see new ground which will be worth the trip alone

The best group of guys I have ever hunted with!!! Man, what memories we have had!!! And now, my daughter does nothing but talk about you guys as she develops her outdoor memories.

The man killer swamp will not be our first destination this year, will it?

07-27-2005, 09:28 AM
I'll be in a pit somewhere between Hickory Ridge and Waldenburg. Just hope it gets cooler by then. Last year we had those giant mosquitos to deal with on opening weekend. :cry:

07-27-2005, 09:59 AM
Take along a Thermacell

Metro Head Hunter
07-27-2005, 03:17 PM
No, I don't think we'll mess with the man killer at first,we'll end up going to the World's Greatest Wood Duck Hole.I don't know about you but, I find myself hoping for another chance for a hunt like that.I've got some info.. on Alabamba hole we can go to,it is only a four hour ride.I'll talk to you about it later. "O'yea am I going to get my girl scout cookies before duck season or what?"

07-27-2005, 09:22 PM
Nov- SD then Lanier. Dec-Paducah: Jan-Stuttgart. Any other time- anyplace I can beg an invite.

Hey Y'all,
When does the Georgia waterfowl season start? Can you give me a ballpark figure? I'm currently in the military in North Dakota, but will be retiring in November then headed to Georgia to join my wife and family. I am just trying to get some kind of plan together so I don't miss out on any opportunities this year. Thanks for your help, Rich

07-31-2005, 01:56 AM
Our early goose season should open Sept. 3. and Duck season should open Nov. 19. Welcome to GA!

07-31-2005, 06:35 AM
Where are you relocating? Give me a push once you get settled and I may be able to help you out.

07-31-2005, 11:50 PM
Last few years there has been an early teal/goose season starting in early Sept. Then the ducks crank up around Thanksgiving for a week, then a week or ten day split, then stays open till January 31.
