Looking for a spot

Postby RyanBud11 » Mon Sep 25, 2006 8:43 am

I am in the Worcester area and am looking for a spot to do some waterfowl hunting. I have about a half dozen goose dekes, a dozen duck dekes and some feeders, and a lab that is dying to get out there. I am originally from CT so I don't have any spots here in Mass. Any ideas?

Ryan- check out the list of public WMA's on the MassWildlife website

http://www.mass.gov/dfwele/dfw/

Check under "Hunting and Fishing", then "Wildlife Lands", then "Wildlife Management Area Maps". Click on the Central District, and check out the Quabog River WMA- heard alot of good things about it, although I must admit have yet to hunt it myself. Closer to home would be the massive Barre Falls WMA.
Keep swinging! :thumbsup:

barre falls....too late for that one!!

being from Barre, I would say that the late start of the season really ruined the opening week for any marshes located in/near barre falls. once the pheasants are stocked, there is more orange hats than there are chipmunks!! although there is a ton of land...you are better off hitting some of the rivers for woodies/mallards....unless you scout some of the WMA's..there are quite a few new ones on the web site. I will be up there on the 15th...getting ready with my bro....then I have the hole week of leave to shoot em up.

I was born in Worcester, but moved out to the sticks of Barre/hardwick when I was a kid. I used to know all of the back roads, now I just get lost. I have been gone for way toooooo long! once I move back up there permanently in 3.5 years....I will have all the spots pinned down again!

hunting spots

Yeah, that is exactly what I was going to do. Just take my dog to some of those closer WMA's and check out what they have for bodies of water. I am definitely not going to want to compete with pheasant hunters when I'm trying to take down some ducks or geese though, I'll never get them to land.
