Just for the fact that we have so many young members. Just wanted to make sure everyone was aware that early teal is just east of 17.

September teal season


Sept. 14 to Sept. 23
(east of U.S. 17 only)


4-

If you go make sure you know what you are shooting at. If folks keep shooting woodies during teal season we won't have it much longer.

Not saying anyone on here did that just asking for everyone to pay attention.

yeah its tough usually all i see is woodies ..."i swear it was a teal when i shot it officer" haha na its tempting but i havent ever "accidentally" shot one during the teal season... i wouldnt be angry if they let you shoot one or two though

im thinking about going to goose creek game lands, has anyone ever hunted the small walk-in impoundments there? i hunted one of them a few years ago and was wondering if they are flooded, and if so are they deep enough for a canoe? trying to avoid snakes and hot waders, any advice would be greatly appreciated

well, I hunted hunting creek last year and got one. the heat wasn't as bad as it can be, but you should wear like a camo t-shirt and shorts to stay less hot. a mojo and a few hen decoys is all you need. and the skeeters are the worst between the truck and the water. thats all i no. glad to be of service

There will be plenty of water. And also plenty of snakes and skeeters. Be careful there are ditches that run all around the impountments.

Well, we had a gret time this past weekend. We didn't fair too well with the teal (had one flock sneak by us :umm: ), but we did manage a few of these....
