sorry to tell u this, but hunting is awful here, especially compared to kansas. I drive from here to hunt public land in kansas every year if that tells you anything. On a different note, being in fort rucker you don't have any decent hunting real close, you have wood ducks and thats about it, at the corner of florida, ga, and alabama, there is a lake called seminole, its about an hour and a half from you, if you go there, scout hard, and catch the birds right, you can kill a few divers, to the south you have numerous bays in florida, panama city, apalachicola, etc. you can kill some divers down there ( probably your best bet), to the west, you have mobile bay, there are birds, but its a huge area, you can't roll up with a boat and figure out how to kill em, you would have to put huge ammounts of time into scouting, mobile bay consists of a mix of divers, gadwall, woodies, and some teal. I'm gonna be honest man, there is a reason that I can go to kansas and kill a limit of birds, even when the locals are not. Its cuz the hunting down here is ten times harder than out west. We just don't have a percentage of the birds that yall do, and we have just as many if not more hunters all crammed into a few areas. My group typically hunts six days a week, and between 5 of us, we killed just over 400 birds this year. only about 250 of those were in alabama, we kill about as many as anybody, its just real hard to kill more, theres a few select people that I know of who kill as many as we do, a few more that kill more than us, but your not gonna be finding any groups of people killing a thousand birds a year, which is a fairly typical number in arkansas or kansas.
