Utah hunter moving to GA

Postby maramarama » Sat Jun 12, 2010 8:55 am

Well I will be moving to Tifton. I am excited to try hunting in the south but will miss the marshes by the great salt lake. I have 4 young hunters. How is the hunting? Is their any good diver hunting? It is a diffrent idea to me to go hunting without frozen toes and fingers, I think I will adjust quickly.

:welcome: to GA!!
just dont get your hopes up. Tifton is a nice town, went to school there back in the 90's. If you want good diver hunting you might try lake Seminole,lake Blackshear, or drive over here to the coast. CoachN lives over there you might want to give him a shout, or you can Pm me for more info!!
Good luck on the move. :thumbsup:

:welcome: You gonna have to really hunt for them but there are a few divers here, too many skybusters at Seminole, Blackshear is a woody hole. You gonna have to travel to find any. Good luck.

Woodies were pretty rare out in UT. That will be fun, do they decoy well? Do you get Brant along the coast? Any sea ducks?

Thanks for the info.

Welcome to GA!!!! :welcome: Woodies decoy well if you can see them...Round here they love to come squealing down the creek or through the trees at Mach 2 ...iust to land 20 yards outside ofur dekes and swim around...Oh and if you dont get any action by 30 mins after LST and youre in a woodie hole...hang it up and go back to bed....Sat total of 12 hours between 3 different hunts hoping to get at least one ...Zeroed....The hunting can be tough but once you learn the area its real fun....we see a few different types around here...Not the huge numbers youre used to but its enough to get me out of bed and into a marsh....As for the coast...Ive got i black brant i shot in South Carolina bout ten years ago on the wall...Havent seen one here ever..Seaducks....Never seen any of em here either...Doesnt mean they arent here ive just never targeted them so i dont know....

I have a feeling you are going to be disappointed with your duck hunting opportunities here. Like someone said before, you can kill a few, but it takes some work. You probably won't see anywhere near the numbers you are used to out west. Now if you are interested in turkeys, wild pigs, and pine goats, welcome to the land of opportunity.
