I just moved to Wilton and am looking forward to hunting some new areas and gaining some local knowledge. I'm from Maryland, but most recently lived in Colorado. I'm not expecting anyone to give up their honey hole, but I'd love any advice on some decent spots to take a look at this coming season. The CT DEEP site is actually one of the more helpful ones in terms of showing public land, but local tips are always best.
Unfortunately it looks like most of the public waterfowl spots are on the sound and require a boat. Does anyone know of any ponds, lakes or rivers that are legal to hunt? I've got a great retriever and will be buying a kayak shortly, but don't have the space for a boat right now.
I also do a lot of fishing as well as deer/whatever-is-in-season hunting so really just looking to connect to the community in this area. I'm glad to be here and look forward to getting after some fowl this year!
