Ducks

Postby Havoc1229 » Wed Jan 01, 2014 11:34 pm

New to the forum. NOT new to waterfowl hunting. Been duck hunting for 15 yrs now. I'm currently in the military. But hanging up the boots next week. Headed home to Arizona. Just curious, how's the season going for everyone so far? To my knowledge it's been pretty hot these past couple months.. But I plan to do a hunt down on roosevelt in a couple weeks, any one hunt it recently? Don't wanna know spots or any thing like that I already have some prior spots I'm gonna scout prior to hunting. Just wanna know how ya'll been doin at roosevelt lately .

Thanks

Havent ever hunted Roosie but the Gila has been decent the last few weeks. We got a good push of migrators after that storm up north a few weeks ago. It slowed down a little last week but with another storm forecasted for up north I think it will pick up again. Welcome home and good luck.

Good thing I got three! Lol but that's good to hear rosy is holding ducks. The state I'm in right now is awful. No less than 20 hunters in a 1 mile area. Way to much pressure on them so none stick around it seems like. Plus this place is covered with wood ducks and there's a 2 wood duck limit.. Usually your hunts over in 10 min

No they are a new species only found in az. Ha ha no I did not want her to suffer and other ways of ending it were not working so I used my knife. Any good suggestions on how to finish a wounded duck? I hear people bite the head, not really my thing. I tried to ring the neck like a turkey and heard and felt it crack but she was still flopping so I did it quick and easy.

For teal, I crush the spine by pushing into the ducks back with my thumb and holding it there until it dies. It's pretty quick and the teal usually dies in a couple of seconds. This is impossible to do for bigger ducks so I just usually bash their head in with a rock or post... :hammer: I need to find a better way to finish off a duck too...
