Two things........the Exeter is in a closed (inland) zone and the location you emblazoned for all to know and find out about, is also in the inland zone but it is not the Exeter River.

Everyone..........do yourself a favor (and all the others who have hunted spots over the years), please do not provide location specific details on an open forum. I know we all try to help others etc.....do it through pm's when possible. When details go on an open forum ANYONE can read the data, not just your fellow members and cyber-friends.

So Tom........the next time you run up the river to the treatment plant, you'll probably find someone in your spot!!!!! I can guarnatee you this....I was there well over a decade ago and don't need your advertising, please! Also, for your own good, check your regulations regarding the NH zones carefully. The coastal zone is all that remains open.

Welcome to the site....just be careful and also considerate.

PM seems to be the best way to communicate questions about locations. Thanks for my new spot on the Exeter River. Kidding?????? I would be afraid to eat a duck that came off of the treatment plant.

Dont listen to him. He thinks he owns the Bay. Hunt where you want.

Nice first post Expert....welcome to the site...... :umm:

The point is not ME...it is for all of us. Just for fun, why don't you tell all of us your favorite spot since you seem to know so much.

Thanks Expert....never woulda thought of there. :salude:

Seriously of course........that area has become so overcrowded the past few years....alot of small craft guys secure from heading out the Straits....more of an afternoon high tide spot in my experience and can be very productive when not crowded.

Good advice D. Personally, I have never understood why people give away specifics on internet sites like this. Keep in mind that there are probably 3 times the number of people lurking on these forums that never even make a post compared to the handful of folks that post regularly. The lurkers are only here for get it now information. It really doesn't make sense to me to give away spots unless you like to have more people hunting in your area or worse beating you to the spots you like to hunt. I don't know about you guys but I don't like having to compete for spots all the time especially when some spots that get named specifically can't take the pressure of more than a couple of boats out at a time.

OK so we all know that when driving east on 101 and you look south into those lovely poop pits there are usually a couple dozen ducks, I have seen them for years but never had a desire to hunt them. No big secret let out there.

I hope this is a friendly forum.

I hunt 50/50 from canoes and boats. Canoes have some advantages to access but be very careful on the Great Bay. Can easily get yourself in a heap of trouble out there, by the same token I have been stuck out there in a boat when the tide let out and I had to wait 6 agonizing hours to get myself out.

Adams Point is a good suggestion for launching a canoe, there are some close by coves on the lee side and you don't have to cross large amounts of open water to get there. Again no major harm let out here, Adams point is a WMA (I think) and has been listed in several articles in field&stream magazine. On those days that I don't want to hassle with the boat I will launch a canoe from Adams but DH is correct it is crowded at times.

Happy New Year :salude:
So many species to hunt and work is always in the way!
