Hunting near Columbia?

Does anyone know if there is any good hunting around the Columbia area? I'll be going to Mizzou next year. Is there any public ground at all?

I found some of the best hunting at Harpo's, Deja Vu, The Blue Note, and Field House......Oh, you were talking about ducks. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Goosetalk said it....EB is minutes away. If you don't get drawn in you can go back home and be back in bed just in time to skip your first class!! :umm:

I'll second that.....

Eagle Bluffs is crazy on the weekends. But luke Cut'm said, during the weekday is better. I had some pretty good hunts there. Spent my first anniversary there in fact, without the wife... :mrgreen: Sack of decoys and and a gun is all you need, besides some waders.

Other than that it is pretty thin. The missouri river, Mark Twain lake to your north. I would try to get permission on some private land during the early fall.

:withstupid: EB can be good, in the past if you didn't draw top 5 positions, then going back to bed was the best choice. If you gotta boat the river can be good, especially on flight days and once everything freezes. There are a few public spots worth a couple good hunts, but I can't tell you those until Jan. Then I'll be in FL so I pass along all my secret spots. Grand Pass is an hour away to the west, it's worth skipping and the drive to hunt there when it's good. (right now it's good)
If you can hit em, Karmin can get em. Once there down, just say back and watch her go!

Schedule classes accordingly

Yeah yeah ... like everyone else said Eagle Bluffs is def. gonna be your best option. Just make sure you have one day when you have some late starting classes so you can go down there during the week, Cuz weekends are crazy there. :yes:
