Sprig31, at least I list where I live. If your so concerned with telling people where to hunt spill your guts on your spots. I think I am pretty forthcoming about where I hunt. I am not going to give anyGPS coordinates but at least I try to give areas. So put up or shut up.
One other thing, if you want to hunt down there knock your self out. I hunt waterfowl all over the state not just near Dillon. I also hunt some private fields in the area. Come on down and try and get some permission. LOL . I promise, if you or 10 people off this site hunt my so called "Sacred" spots it wont affect me at all. I was under the impression that Kwack Wacker wanted areas close to Bozeman. Where I live is 2 hours away and for your info Clark Canyon isnt the easiest place to hunt. Sure, I hunt some of the spots you listed why wouldnt I ,I am 20 min from all of them. I also hunt freezout, the flathead, eastern MT Bowdin, Ennis lake and a doz other places. I lived in Bozeman for 5 years, so I feel I have a very good understanding of areas within an hours drive from Bozeman. So sorry about the mis-communication. What my orginal post should have started out as was this- "When" I hunt canyon ferry, I always hunt it early in the season and then I would hit the Gallatin river late season.
Canyon Ferry- 1 hour away
Go way out on the mud flats and use a layout out something low profile.
Mallards,widgeon and gads plus good for redheads.
Gallatin River- 15 min
Kwack Wacker-also look into Ennis lake and Harrison lake. It will require some scouting, but Ennis lake can be as good as any body of water in the state for mallards,widgeon and Gads when the flights move thru. Its about 45 min from Bozeman.
