i hunt sauvie island between the columbia and willamate rivers in between oregon and washington, there are two sides, the east and west and some goose hunting in the middle, i usually hunt the west but we draw for numbers and if i gt a high number i go to the east side where its first come first serve for hunters after the people woo put in for the draw get their blinds, good hunting especially when it floods, here are corn fields and i think the plant rice but i usually get shovelers, teal, mallards, and my share of widgeon, in the flooded time pintailss come in by the hundreds

I hunt in the Pecan island area in Cameron parish. Our property was hit bad by the hurricane. And didnt think we would have a good season. but we did, and we hunt in the marsh and suprisingly since the saltwater killed our marsh we had tons of pintail pooring in. alright season. :thumbsup:

I hunt on our family wetland. We all usually limit out on a few species on opening and after that we get dribs and drabs. Its all about waist deep and wadeable. Otherwise I hunt rivers which especially on rainy days can offer superb hunting. Opening is only 1 week away. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :salude: :salude: :getdown: :getdown:

Northern Illinois. We mainly hunt corn/bean fields. We do a little bit of hunting on the water. Had a pretty good year.

Private land. Couple of farm ponds which are really good and a piece of land called "The Bouge" which is pretty much a marsh with a bunch of cattails, flooded timber, and reeds this place provides SOME OF THE BEST HUNTING EVER!
The group ended up with 420 birds.

Arkansas.

Wherever there are ducks and few people.

One week away, that must be nice.

Around my house life happens for three months out of the year. The other nine are spent preparing.
If you love something let it go. If it doesn't come back to you then hunt it down, kill it, and eat it.

I hunt Hyde County, North Carolina. We had a so, so season last year. Got alot of Teal, a few Widgeon, Mallards, Ringnecks, Blackducks, Pintails and of course a ton of Mergansers. We hunt flooded corn and rice in private impounds.
Good luck down there in New Zealand, Kiwi. Shoot alot and scare some of those ducks to the states!

Yep these are the coolest looking duck i have ever seen. The Madarin ducks are found in east asia and Japan. I have never heard of one in the US. But they do sell them as pets, so it probably was a former pet. It would be awsome to have on of those ducks mounted. Here's a pick for you

There isn’t any ducks in Northern NY either. So my wife bought me one of those video games were I get to shoot them with my electric toy shot gun, when they fly by. :thumbsup:
