DBO I suggest you get more off the beaten path if you're planning on hunting the AL river. If you're going to kill ducks, you need to find the shallow, secluded sloughs that tend to be well off the main river channel. I can't give up the goods but there are several good-great sloughs off the AL river. Some are near the upper section where the confluence of the Tallapoosa and Coosa rivers form the AL river. There are several sloughs west of town, towards whitehall/selma that see a lot more pressure but tend to hold more ducks. Get out and scout! Don't listen to these guys on this board that say you can't/won't kill big ducks around here. They don't know because they don't take the time to scout. We shot roughly 50 mallards/20 BWT/ countless woodies/ and even 4 redheads off the AL last season. Hell I shot Mallards, woodies and BWT's on my farm pond in Cecil last yr.
scout, scout, scout.... fail.....scout some more
