drive time

How far do you guys drive to duck and goose hunt? I hardly ever drive more than thirty min to hunt ducks and never over 15 min to hunt geese.

1 hr 40 mins to OS. 45 mins to DC. 1 hr 10 mins to TMP. And I get the prize for stupid cause I will drive to these spots and then go back home if I don't get to hunt. Can't get any dumber than that!

I've got spots that are 15 min away and spots that are 1 and a half hour away. It always seems the spots farthest away are the best though....damn.

There's a differance between stupidity and insane. what i ment was how far is your drive on a missouri duck hunt typically. Kinda like me spend 30 days in stuttgart after missouri north season is closed damn 90 days duck hunting wears on ya.

I knew what you meant - I was just being a smart azz! :lol3:

north zone hunts - 1 hour
SEMO hunts - 4.5 hours

And be happy you still got folks in Arkyland to hunt with! :beer:

Hell, when I was younger we would drive 3 hours to OS and then back home if we didn't draw. Then I got older and wiser and found other spots to go when I didn't get in. I remember being about 13 or so and we drove down to OS missed the draw by 5 minutes and drove all the way back home. Nice 6 hour trip.

Yea, back up spots are nice. Got a couple lined up for next year already, there are always more to find. :thumbsup:

To far to all of them!!40 min to the closest for ducks!! I am one of the stupid ones that will drive and put forth effort to duck hunt!! :thumbsup:

Goose is a different story. 50 yards is the closest. farthest is prob. 30 min.

Since drive times are usually accompanied with a corresponding morning alarm time, I usually opt for any distance that doesn't get me out of bed before 4:00 am. With that said, my boys have convinced me to participate in the early morning circus otherwise known as CA draws from time to time.

I don't like driving more the 2 hours one way . Takes me about an 1 or 2 to get to EB or TS and that's about the farthest I like to travel anymore . More options on backup plans on the way back from TS , but I'm finding new areas to hunt around here and there and between.

90 minutes one way is about the norm. That allows me to get to most of the CA areas on the west side of the state. Getting to hunt when I get there is a whole other matter.
