Anyone hunt the Santa fe river?

Postby birdyhunter » Thu Dec 27, 2012 8:10 pm

Pretty new to duck hunting and have been hunting small swamp ponds and cypress swamps for woodies. I have a small lease that is on the river and have started thinking about hunting it for ducks as well. Anyone that has any experience hunting rivers in fl and could give some advice, I would love to hear from you.

The rivers I've hunted offers mostly woodies. You can drift and jump shoot them, or set up on a large bend in the river for some passing shots. It's a possibility to see other species of ducks, but more than likely you'll be seeing mostly woodies. Good luck. :thumbsup:

There's a ton of turkeys all over that river, I've seen limited woodies. There's some better options not far from there though. Good luck.

The only boat I have currently is an 18" sea hunt so drifting is out but I think I may know a good spot to set up on a bend. Thanks!
