You are in a tough part of the state when it comes to ducks. Spend some time looking at maps of your area, small water and then go scout. Folks on here have gotten tired of cyberscouters, not saying you are but just telling it like it is. The duck hunting in that part of the state is feast or famine, so good luck and plan on at least a two hour drive if you like big water. Oh and by the way Welcome to the site most of the guys on here are really good folks. We are all a little cautious about where the ducks are this time of year. I will say this, we have the weather, so we will have ducks this year. Good luck. :welcome:

Just like jamrp, I'll be moving to the dahlonega area in a few months. I'm not looking for spots, as I grew up in the area, but never duck hunted it. Besides, I like the off season to scout anyway. I have my own complete equipment, but I'm more curious as to the types of ducks in the area. I'm sure there are woodies. Right now I'm in eastern NC (duck central) and I'm sad to leave as a duck hunter, but also excited to try out new area. I'm more afraid I'll be back to hunting only land game (deer, turkey, etc.). Again, I don't want to know where you hunt, just the species of ducks in this area.
Most Common phrases out of a duckers mouth:
Why couldn't you have been born a duck!!!
OH S*&T, DUCKS!
Damn tweedy bird, you about got shot.
There's a whole bunch of duc..oh wait, tweety birds.
I about turned this mosquito into a duck
I just got ate up
