Keep scouting is the best thing you can do, I don't get down that way much but I will shoot you a PM if I do.

Buy yourself a map at Walmart and go to seminole just be careful! Tons and tons of stumps out there waiting to get a hold of a boat! Good luck and safe hunting!

Like I always say, when there ain't no ducks...go to Big Jims for some oysters! You could go to seminole state park and thin out them geese! :yes:

Wood ducks can be sort of tough to decoy. One group will drop right in. The next group will act like your dekes aren't even there. If you are seeing birds flying over you, you are close. Look around you. Are you in an area that has plenty of food? What about the canopy? Is it open enough to make it easy for the birds to land? I like to pick areas that have food and an open canopy. Doesn't have to be wide open but a little hole with surrounding cover usually works for me.
