I hunted local for years but a few years ago I started hunting Mississippi. A good friend of mine farms out there and the hunting does not compare. Its hard to get up in the morning locally to shoot at woodies and a few mallards. I took a friend of mine went with me last year and said he was never going back to Guntersville, Al . That seems to be were most hunters from Ga go. I went there for a while but said there had to be a better way....... So I was just wondering who in this forum leaves this state and were do you go. Also if you hunt just local and are addicted. Just try to get out to the flyway. You will really be messed up!

Durell, no truer words have been spoken. I've got news for you though - head over one more state. I hunted MS for four years before joining a lease in Arkansas last year. I could not believe the difference in MS and AR. Alot of it has to do with location, but the only way I'll leave this lease is when God decides I've killed enough. My son gives up youth season here to go out there for work weekend. He'ld rather hunt there than here anyday - but we settle for the Woodducks when we can't make the trip. I hunted 19 days and my son hunted 13 out there last year.

I usually hunt out of state once or twice per season, but hunt the rest of the weekends in-state.

I hunted LA and AR last year. Have LA trips planned for this year and maybe IL.

I usually go 3 or 4 times a year. Hoping this year to make it out to Arkansas 5 or 6 times.

They are killing the birds that got buy while we were reloading. Brookings has been the last known position of a many a mallards the past 2 or 3 years. Not many make it out.

We appreciate it. Just keep letting the ones with the shiny things on their legs go by. I'm assuming y'all are talking about Illinois hunting? Did y'all have a lot of frozen days as well? Last year opening weekend was froze solid. We were shooting ducks on ice.

Last year opening weekend was froze solid. We were shooting ducks on ice.Brookings is north of you, in the south west corner of Clay county. Our timber is bordered by Dave Donaldson and the Black River. Not too many frozen days in Illinois this year. Same as you we shot ducks that landed on ice in Arkansas. Good luck this year.

I do not go as much anymore - mainly travel out of state to deer hunt. I usually go to Arkansas, Montana and Kentucky for waterfowl.

Last year. I have a swamp about 1 mile from the house where I shoot Wood Ducks...

I killed two banded Canada Geese off of it in Jan 2008......they were locals..

Still scared to come up with Lee and I for some hot Lanier huntings? :rofl:

On topic:

I hunted MO the last two and I will probably hit that or AR this year along with a proposed trip to east coast for some sea monsters and I am looking towards Argentina next spring.

I am not a great caller but I shoot and hide passably so I really try to get a good trip out of state. If not, I end up with alot of fun but not much to show for it in the hills here. Ducks don't climb mountains and Lanier sucks.

Nitro, do you have any locations of WMA's (wildlife managment area) where you go? I want to go out of state some, but the "other" websites around the country dont think highly of you asking questions about there home turf. I want to try Biyou Metro in arkansas, but when i asked a few folks on "other" boards, i got a beatdown of good porportions. PM me if you can brother..we're all in this game together. And any pro's or con's of metro. I hear its east to kill ducks, but hard to navigate.
I have a 14 foor john boat with a old 9.9 sea horse. Heckuva boat, and will scout for days. Im willing to scout, just some boat ramp pro's and cons.
Anyone else that knows of good wma's feel free to chirp in (no pun intended)

I think you are speaking of the Bayou Meto. Opening day there will be 2 to 3 thousand hunter and 3 to 4 hundred all days after that. Take your insect repellent and a GPS, lots of streams and waterways (would not want a newbie to get lost). The duck numbers depend on the mast crop and the water levels. I don't know of anybody that likes to speak to openly about their spots and I havent told you anything that you couldnt find on your own. Just do a little research. Good luck.

i got a friend who belongs to a lease club there. he called me one day and wanted me to go there. should i go>? i think its a bit driving long drive there and back. dont know if these old bones can hanlde it.
any other areas closer to georgia that do good. all i know s swamps and the coast. the coast is tough without good bird on the push south. thanks

I have to say that if you get a chance to go you should go. I'm in a club by the Dave Donaldson. It is so much fun to see the sky black with ducks. I have hunted all over the state. If i were you i would try Shirey Bay/ Rainy Brake. It is not as big as the metro, but you can kill ducks. During the week no one hunts it. Also, look at the White River National Refuge, if the water is there so will the ducks. There are tons of places to go. I know that Big Lake is a good place. If you have a GPS you can get the coordinates from the AGFC website. They will lead you to all the blinds. But, i have to warn you that; the locals think that the own the blinds.
Last year a group of hunters were in a blind, the blind had decoys out, they got in the blind like they should have. Then the locals that left the decoys came up in their boat and demanded the group to get out of the blind. The guy had a pistol and told them to get out. So the guys did. I don't know if i would have gotten out, because i had a shotgun and the guy had a pistol. I do know one thing, i would have a conversation with that guy when he got back to the ramp. But, don't let me scare you. If you go a day early and scout you will kill ducks.
If you need any info just let me know. You can find information on the AGFC site that will give you maps to each WMA.

CB maybe it would be best if you stayed in Ga. That is a long ride and tough hunting. As old as you seem to be it sounds as though you could become a liability. Be careful out there on the coast as well.

Im old but not dead friend. I been o tunica a few times and this was back when they had ducks landing int he fountains. true story. I killd one or two in my day friend, but i aint too old to travel. your welcome to go if you need to get out of georgia.
i like making new akwanetences to hunt with. It is all about the felowship and comroderie.

i imagine i'd probably drive on of them super uped in thr air trucks with them fancy chrome smoke stacks on it friend.

as it stands, i do day to day, and stay in school friend.

i did a little time in the pokey for aiding and abetting a known fugitive, she was a woman who did things for me on the side, and caught me wanting to get en there some and with a bad check or two. after that, i lost my job as a security gard with a prety good known vacation resort in tybee island. Spelling is good my friend, so stay in school and quit making too much fun of folks.

i know how to read, but it dont get from my head to the paper too good.

o.k. Enuff of me and spelling. I came here to talk ducks. My nephew showed me how to get on the intranet and did this as a favorite places.

Now we gonnein to hunt or what boys. It is summer, but winter is then. Cant' wait for them boys.

No. I just wish folks would worry about other things besides spelling and grammar. I just wanted to help a person that can't use a computer well. What does age have to do with it? I did not come at you or single you out. I simply stated that people on these forums concern themselves with minute things, instead of concentrating on the big picture. If you understand what the author is writing then answer the question, but if you can't go to another post.

Sur-A-Shot Duck Club out of Arkansas, we were wrapped up with duck there! Also some private land in AR. Had a blast literally! Like you said, it's hard to get up and hunt locally when you've hunted one of the flyways! Reelfoot Lake, and the Mississippi in Wisconsin! You should have seen all the Cans up there! We saw 100,000 at least, the season being closed on em last year really ruined our trip! Thats all that decoyed and buzzed around us all day, Cans Cans, and more Cans!

I'd say Arkansas had to be my most successful!!!! Can't wait to go back!

You hunt at brookings? We normally stay at a buddys cabin up there by the river when we go up to hunt. Its got a lot of birds in the area if you know how to hunt em
