Who hunts out of State

Thread starter #1
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.

Left overs!

Suffice it to say, Mr. K is in one of the finest Duck Clubs in AR....... they kill em.
Let Mr. K and the other members they are invited to come eat with us one evening. 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.

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.
