I'm down here at Ft. Benning, too. Been here about 10 months now, but didn't get here in time to catch the season last year. Originally from Ohio, and mostly used to hunting geese in cornfields, but looking to hunt geese and ducks anywhere around here, also. Drove around a bunch on the AL side yesterday, and stopped and talked to a guy who said he mostly hunts the river bends on the Hooch, down around Ft. Mitchell, and some refuge over there (sounded like public land, but I didn't get exactly where it is). Saw a different forum that mentioned checking out Lakes Harding, West Point, and Eufala. I think (based off of map recon) that the X zones on post might be profitable for ducks, since it is marshy and along the river. Never been over there though.
Anyway, I would be down for trying to link up and get into some birds around here, if anyone is willing. I have Canada goose decoys, blind, and calls, though I am by no means a pro on the calls. Going to try and look into renting MWR boats from Outdoor Rec. Also trying to get my wife into bird hunting. She is interested, just not experienced. Shoot me a message if interested.
