Stillwater Help

Postby duckmanNV » Tue Oct 09, 2012 8:36 pm

So.... For the opening weekend I am planning on heading out to Stillwater. The issue is that I have never hunted that area before. What is the water like out there? Are there any general areas that usually hold some ducks? Since I have stuff going on on Sat. will the number of hunters out be any more tolerable on Sunday?
Any help will be appreciated- Thanks!

From the looks of it Stillwater doesn't hunt that Sundays. This is call and make sure before you go.

Last year was my first opener out there Sat and Sun and yes it was considerably less populated than Saturday. Scouting as always is the key trying to find a spot not knowing where you are going is probably gonna loose you a little bit of valuable hunting time just be courteous of the hunters already there and set up. Water levels weren't too bad compared to other spots I was out there 4 weeks ago. Good luck and have fun :thumbsup:

You can wade most of Stillwater, but it's a good idea to have a staff for those unexpected holes. There is virtually no shade there unless you hunker down in the weeds. The landings will be crowded, and boats will be used. You can find some honey holes if you're willing to walk. Different ponds have different restrictions on what, if any, boats can be used on them. Dogs are recommended but not necessary. The tules and nutgrass can get pretty tall and a bird that is not DOA can get in there and you'll never see them again.
