Welcome,
I hunt Seminole and farm ponds mostly back home. Gonna try to get a boat up here (in Athens) after Christmas to try out the local areas around here. Glad to have you with us.

Got any advice for places to hunt around lake Oconee if you don't have a boat? I checked out a couple of places at the Redlands, but only saw a couple of ducks.

Hunts around Lake Oconee

Postby clent586 » Sun Dec 11, 2005 2:24 pm

Went this morning and it was great. Thru out dekes @ 05:55 and by 06:30 they were frozen in. I was hunting around the camp area on 15 @ the river. To many folks have found out about this place. Had 5 guys come in on us near shooting hours. One of the guys sounded like he had never seen a duck call before and decided to test ride it about 75 yards from me. Another one of the guys was not having any luck with the ducks so he decided to try calling some crows, and even they were flaring. Had 2 overhead flybys, to fast. One of the before mentioned guys started skybusting on a good flock of 8-10 big ducks, at about 75 yards out from where I think he was at. He was about 100 yards from me but those birds did not want to listen to anything I was saying and were gone. So the great part of this morning was that it was cold and I got to spend some great time with my best friends son (9 yrs old) and his grandfather (67) whom literally taught me everything I know about the outdoors some 22 yrs. ago. Public land is getting rough around here for even the half way serious waterfowler.

I was at the Redlands and I feel your pain. I had a pair of mallards working in front of me, but they were like 60 yards out. Too, far for me, but they were evidently in range for the guy that was 100 yards to the left of me to take a couple of shots. It was atleast 150 yards for him. It was one of those things that you see but don't really believe. I am going to try it during the week, maybe fewer skybusters.

Where is Hoschton?

Postby clent586 » Sat Dec 17, 2005 1:33 pm

Hoschton is in Jackson county, however, several decades ago when Gwinnett Co. had nothing better to do than let other counties annex land, my area was annexed into Hoschton City. I actually live about 12 miles from Hoschton in good old Hog Mountain. The people around here now call it Hamilton Mill because of the Country Club. It is off 85 North about 50 miles from Atlanta.

i live near both lakes and i would to like to know a good place to hunt. i normally go to arkansas but there's no water therefore there's no ducks. also can anyone go to Redlands and hunt ducks, and if so is it worth it.

hunting on redlands

Postby clent586 » Mon Dec 26, 2005 11:00 am

strech, anyone can hunt the redlands if you have a wma stamp as well as the other license. You can not hunt during firearms deer season for waterfowl, so you can not hunt again until 1/9/06 ?. lots of people have been in the swamps this year. I hunt during the week almost exclusively because my schedule at the fire department lets me, but all the places I hunt people wear out during the weekends. have seen a few big ducks earlier in the season but the last couple of weeks only woodies. maybe this will help you. there should be some good areas around colbert to hunt. i dove hunt near there every year and shoot clays at brush creek.
