akpat wrote:A jump hunting tip I've used on foggy or snowy days: Sneak into the area, pond or lake you hope to find ducks quietly. Make a few single mallard quacks, then wait patiently a few minutes. Another quack or two and then wait a few more minutes. I've had great luck with ducks on the water answering me. Caution do not call too much or anything fancy - just a simple quack at most two like a duck lost in the fog would do. This will give you the location of where to put the sneak on. The same trick works if you have decoys set, no fancy calls or feeding calls, just a single quack or possibly 2 - ducks on the lake/pond if alone seem to want to join up and will come to the single call. If one is in the air it will hone in on the occasional quack and come right into the decoys.
Many times I've used this and scored ducks when other hunters are getting skunked or sitting home.

I have done this many times and know what to look for when scouting....I know what the birds prefer depending on what part of the season we are in. I always check the craw of the birds we shoot!! And chances are I will know what they are feeding on and where to find it! Your welcome peeps!
