Falls of Neuse Lake Duck Hunting

Postby lvduckhunter » Wed Jul 26, 2006 1:01 pm

I am a new resident to your State (absolutely love it here) and am having difficulty getting reliable information about Falls of Neuse Lake Duck Hunting opportunities. I have found that you can put in for the special permit hunts... how about other public land opportunities on the lake? Can you hunt there and is it worth it?

Thank you in advance for your help in this matter.

Go to your local Wal-Mart and get a gameland map book. You can hunt alot of the lake and many of the creeks and swamps around the lake with no permit. The problem is that there are 3-4 times as many hunters as there are ducks. Pressure is heavy and you are almost certain to have someone set up on top of you. I have hunted the swamps for the past 5 yrs, but I am probably going to give it up because I'm tired of getting out there at 4am and every yahoo in the world is lining that creek and skyblasting ducks. By the time they get to your hole, they are wise and won't even give your dekes a second look. With all that being said, I have had some good hunts out there. One morning 3 years ago, 3 of us killed 14 ducks (10 mallards, 1 pintail, 1 gadwall, 1 wood duck, and 1 black duck)!

If you have a small boat w/ outboard, you can find some nice spots on the Flatt river. The good spots on the lake will be crowded... If you go during the week, its alot better than saturdays.
