First off, hello. Finally found a forum that has some local info on it and hoped you guys could help me out a bit. This is my second year chasing ducks, but I've pretty much been limited to hunting with my buddy at his spots around Whitehall. I had one nice little spot on the Bighole river just north of Dillon, but found out today when I headed down there that someone had built a new fence and closed off the property that used to have "Sportsmen Welcome" signs on it. After driving around for a couple hours I gave up as every place was either posted heavily or leased to an outfitter. I'm not yet equiped w/ decoys (trying to piece gear together on a family budget), so I haven't even tried hunting Clark Canyon. Can anyone point me in a general direction to do some jump shooting that isn't an hour from town? I need a little duck mentoring here..
Also...I've noticed the hundreds of geese flying over Dillon...is there any good opportunities to get on some around here that aren't locked up by the outfitters? Thanks a millon.
