field hunting...need help

Postby gen1.26 » Sun Nov 30, 2008 10:47 pm

Okay, so where we usually hunt in the bottoms, there is no water. So would ducks still be there? There are creeks and stuff, but no flooded fields. So if they are, then what do I need to do to hunt them? The only decoys i have float, I have no layout blind...so I dont know what to do. Could/should I hunt a field that is not flooded for ducks?

both. In some fields there are beans, then there is corn in others. I think though that there is more beans. What do I need to do?

Yea hunt the field, after this weekend there should be snow on the ground in your aera so hunting with water deks is cool because they look like shells but like jeff jr said, you need to find some 3d field deeks. If there is snow, grap a sheet from walmart and rap yourself in it like one of those cheap poucho's you can get with the hole cut in the middle of it and you will be good to go. If you really what to get crazy, buy a few sheets and cut them into strips and tie them to a white coat and pants and make a gillie suit. that works really well too.

Okay, So how should I do this. First i need to see if there are ducks there. Like when should i scout? Morning, afternoon, of evening? Also if there are ducks, where should I set up? Middle of the field, the edge, where? What else do I need to know?
Any more advice?

To answer your guestions and help out a few other that might read this post

1. Find the ducks and after they leave at night, put out a marker of some kind.
2. Come back to the field and set up right where they left.
3. camo up really good and make sure to stay put. I have sat in fields for hours until around noon before we got a shoot off. we took a limit but sometimes waiting pays off.

Yea, wheat is fine. The biggest thing is to find the geese. If there in a field no matter what it is, set up in it and they will come. Good luck.
