i take a little duck hunting trip every year. have been to misssissippi, north dakota, and kansas, also hunt local in north carolina and south carolina.

i was kinda looking at the southeast region of missouri for this year. i am not looking for anyone to give up their honey holes but would like to know if all of the public areas have walk in access or would i need a boat? also i would like to know what the chances are for being drawn for a blind if i hunt alone and during the week? looking at the o.s. area.

also would like to know if anyone in the area does day leases on blinds on private land. if any of you would be interested in joing me you can p.m. me. we maybe could work out a swap for a spring turkey hunt in south carolina on 1000 acres private land with plenty of birds.

thanks :thumbsup:

Duck creek boats for you to use and a wade-in area. I had some good hunts down there last year.

I went to Duck Creek when everything else was froze up. It seems to stay open longer. Last year there was a little ice but we broke through it pretty good and found some open water. It always depends on momma nature, but DC stayed open until the end last year.

hey guys not to sound dumb but where is duck creek... i froze out just before the mallards got here///// :pissed:
we used an old duckhunters trick, put a mixture of bluing and water on the ice. scattered a few decoys, got our birds but lot of work.

look into Otter Slough conservation area (wade and shoot, or they have some boats for the places you need them), good hunting, but the draw system sucks if you're hunting alone. Usually you can team up with some folks at the draw to increase your chances if you don't mind huting with people you don't know. more info at www.mdc.com
If you can hit em, Karmin can get em. Once there down, just say back and watch her go!
