for driftwood that is....See there, you thought I wanted your duck spot..lol....Just wanting to know where you guys are seeing any good driftwood laying in big quantities...It's sort of like duck hunting, without the ego's...lol...Too much work for everyone to do it...I have an area from say kenlake to pine bluff I check a few times during the winter, but didn't know if you guys are seeing anything in other areas of Ky. lake/Barkley lake...I have a pretty good pile but since I'm opening up before too much longer I want to have a good stockpile...Thanks men for any help...David.

Would giving you locations of driftwood not be giving away the vicinity of hunting locations? There was a huge one on the Turkey Bay area last year. That sucker was beast.

You mean this one??? This was taken last year...My son in the pic is 6' tall to give you some perspective..I took a sawzall and cut about 20 peices out of the roots on it...This year the flood this summer swapped ends with it and it's poining the opposite way but still in the exact same spot...

And as far as hunting locations...C'mon man...You really think I need a hunting location that bad at this point in my life...I had a guy last year tell me of a certain cove on the lake to get some drift at..He saved me a couple of days of looking for it..I was able to get 4 trailer loads in the same spot..Saved me a load of time...More time to kill and mount ducks...lol...

Yep, that's it! Sorry I couldn't help you then.

Nobody ever has enough hunting spots though.
