Lake Lanier

Postby PiKappCutter » Thu Jan 17, 2013 3:13 am

I'm from Tennessee but have a friend that lives in Dawsonville I go to the lake with during the summmer. Just curious about the duck hunting down there. I saw a bunch of pockets and places that looked like sweet places to hunt. Dont worry I'm not interent scouting, I've got plenty of places in TN and N. Al to hunt, I was just wondering.

If you just want to spend time and hunt with your buddy go for it. But I wouldn't count on killing/ seeing much

I have a specific spot that I found just by walking around. Some days its great and we see around 80+ birds and some days we see as little as 19. We can always count on the honkers though! Seen mallards, gwt, couple buffys, gray ducks, and ringnecks. What part of the lake you hunting and are you using a boat?

In the wise words of Cheech and Chong..."Looks like dog crap, smells like dog crap, feels like dog crap, tastes like dog crap. Must be dog crap. Good thing we didn't step in it!". Sure looks like an attempt at internet scouting to me, but since you said "Dont worry I'm not interent scouting" I guess I'm wrong...

From one Pi Kapp to another, most of what you're reading on this thread is true, hunting LL is tough and very hit or miss. I wouldn't make a 4 hour drive just to hunt it. But, if you're here and want to hunt you might as well. Don't listen to these tools with their "Internet Scouting" crap. Everyone on a hunting forum behind a computer is automatically an "Expert". There are 10 parks open to late season Waterfowling, here is the link to those parks and the regulations. I'm not going to tell you which parks I like but at least you have a starting point. http://www.georgiawildlife.com/sites/de ... 012-13.pdf

I gave him some advice but not as much as you. I basically told him it was hit or miss. My last post was a joke, take a chill pill and relax man.

Haha glad everyone calmed down. DuckDawg's is the only I woulda have taken offense to. Trust me, its barely worth driving down there to board and drink in 80 degree weather with girls in bikinis so I'm definitely not driving to sit in a boat, on a lake, when its rainy cold and windy and not see ducks. I'll stay in Mid TN and do the same thing. Thanks for the conversation though.

DuckSlayer26. On a whim, I'm geo-searched the lat/long you gave. I killed the biggest duck in my life there on a closing weekend. It was long, shiny silver, with "SouthWestern" on the tail. It took 6 boxes of hevi-shot, super fast steel, and it was flying at roughly 36,000 feet. But what a kill!!!!
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
