Getting started duck hunting in GA

Postby sprtslvr1973 » Mon Jan 03, 2011 4:16 pm

Note: I posted this exact paragraph on the Honey Hole forum. Thanks to the twon ncie people who helped over there.

Hello. My name is Ian and I live in the Atlanta, GA area. To date I have only been hunting once (dove) and enjoyed it. I am looking for some basic advice. If I want to try duck hunting and do not have a dog, are there any groups I may try to network with? Also, despite my being 37 years old, I am a FT student again and would rather not blow $500 on a single day's hunt if I can avoid it. Any advice on hunting on public lands?
Thanks everyone for their time.
Ian

welcome Ian!!

hunting is hard up here. lots of locked lips and very few birds. This year was a bust. my second full season in ga. Im used to fl and ar so its a little frustrating here sometimes.

next year will be better, im not out of work now and i will have a boat next season again. if your still around next season maybe we can hook up.

Doing a bump.
Can anyone share with me the dates of Georgia duck hunting? Also I would like to meet a friend or two interested in hunting on government land (or any land w/o expensive visitor fees).
Hope everyone is well.
