Season good so far in West Central Il near the Miss River!

Postby WestCenILLDuckHunter » Tue Nov 01, 2005 8:34 am

Went Saturday got 3 Marllard Drakes, 2 Blue Wing Teal, and 1 Canada Goose. Went Monday got a pair of Marllards Drake and Hen and 1 Galdwall and had several groups of geese work but no takers I am not a sky buster. Went this Morning for a short hunt and got 1 wooduck and 1 Galdwall. Had some Marllards work but did not like the decoys not moving I needed wind. I am going to go again Thursday I hope but sounds like I may need sun tan lotion! I know the refuge that is not far at all from my hunting spot is getting full of Marllards and Pintail and all kinds of other ducks and gots of geese. But no divers yet! So far this season is a heck of alot better than last year!

Went Saturday 11-05-2005 Got 2 Mallard Drakes, 1 Galdwall, 1 Shoveler.
Going again on Tuesday or Wednesday.


Mississippi River Pool 19 / Lake Cooper they call it!
Niota IL, is across the river from Fort Madison, Iowa or north of Keokuk, Iowa about 15 to 20 miles. I hunt around Nauvoo, IL close to the big Refuge there at Nauvoo, IL. Hope this helps or about 1 1/2 hours north of Quincy IL.
