I am new to this forum but have reviewed a bunch of posts over the past few days and finally got up the nerve to sign up, get a password, and start asking some questions! Hope you all dont mind the intrusion...
I am a relatively new waterfowler and all of my hunts to date have been with guides on the eastern shore. while they have given me some great opoprtunities for ducks, canadas, snows, divers, etc., I have been wanting to get out and have a go at it myself.
In any case, I called the folks at McKee Beshers the other day to inquire about the flooded timber hunting, only to find out that the "water is low" and therefore, not much flooded timber is available.
Here is my issue- I have a few dozen decoys (mallards, woodies, teal), a good pair of chest waders and a buddy lined up for later this week but I want to know if it is worth hitting the open water ponds at the WMA or trying to get over to Maddux Island if I dont have a boat. THe guy on the phone said I could "probably" get to the island without a boat...
I am not asking for any secret honey holes, etc., but just want to know if I should head down there to check it out and if so, where should I be parking and walking in.
Any info would be great!! Thanks again!!!!
