Pintails

Postby HydeMarsh » Fri Dec 20, 2013 9:55 pm

Have not seen many this year. did not think the population is off. I would appreciate thoughts on where (not looking for spots) they might be. Up north still? all ready passed by? Rafted up in the safe zones within 500 yards of Pamlico county shores? In Mattamuskeet and just not leaving?

Mattamuskeet is loaded with them.

Why do I keep seeing folks say 500 yards from Pamlico county shores? I thought the law reads you had to be 500 yards from a permanent hunting location to hunt? Not 500 yards from every shore? Am I misunderstanding this? And as far as Pintails I have seen a few groups sky high where I hunt in Beaufort county, all heading somewhere specific. Thanks for any clarification.

Because they're idiots that have nothing else to bitch about, don't like the law and think exaggeration will help bring more folks to their pity-party.



The law does state 500 yards from permanent hunting blinds.

Thanks! I dont think anyone is an idiot I was actually getting kind of confused about it. I have fished lots of shoreline in PamCo without a blind in sight thats why I was wondering about it. But anyways now that we are off topic, how bout those pintails.

Wild Wing Farm near Mattamuskeet
Private hunt club that I have been told you buy a time share into
Best I can remember the cost is $20000 per person and that gets you 4 two day hunts and you are told when you can come and can't even pick the days yourself
The members are funny to be around to hear them talk and complain when they don't shoot their limits in 1 hour and the hunting sucked because they actually had to stay in the blind to around mid morning to limit out

Thanks for the clarification. My info was hear say. I should have said per membership which I guess means 4 per blind. Props to the people who can afford to pay that to hunt. I know my poor --- won't ever be there to hunt.

NCBUFFELHEAD WROTE "Because they're idiots that have nothing else to bitch about, don't like the law and think exaggeration will help bring more folks to their pity-party."

Dude you need to lose the hostility. I do not hunt there and will not because I do not agree with a government siding with rich people over the average NC citizen. The water is the for the people of NC! the land is for the people that own it. The Peoples' rights end at the waters edge and the landowners' rights end at their property boundary.

By the way,there are a lot of unhunted shore blinds in Pamlico - the law does provide a safe place for birds to raft.

Question: do you support the eco and cultural fascism of the Obama administration?

I do not really agree with the law either. My point was that there is plenty of shore to hunt in Pamlico County without a blind for 500 yards? 500 yards is actually not that far on the open water either IMO.

go to jones bay in pamlico county, that bay is a very large area. there are blinds every 500 yards. these blinds are made purposefully to keep people from hunting in this area. tell me if you think thats fair. And dont think that all of those blinds could ever be occupied at the same time. Jones island hunt club makes them just to keep people out of that area. The law should be 500 yards from every OCCUPIED blind. If you don't agree then.............

That is wrong. Hester upped the price last year. I hunt it a few times a year and other than maybe Neupamba there is not much like it.

For that kind of money you can go duck hunting in Argentina and kill more ducks in 3-4 days then most people kill in two seasons in NC. Afternoon dove or perdiz hunting will be a bonus.
However if anybody can afford both, more power to them.

Ahh I see. An old timer told me about a place beside mattamuskeet one time but didn't call it that. That's probably what he was talking about though. That's just insane.

Drove down North Lake road this past Saturday at lunch. took a look at the lake just before Fairfield, I could have walked across the lake on the ducks and Swans. A lot of Pintails. Beautiful blue bird day. I guess you just need more wind and cold weather than we have had on the recent weekends to get them up moving and feeding. I need someone to pay my bills so that i can hunt anytime the weather is bad. Weekend hunting just limits you. I would accept volunteers.

Do the people with the great impoundments near the prison mind if you hunt when they are not there? Scouting shows there are a lot of birds there. Much better than say High Rock or Falls of the Neuse lake.

Hyde, all they can do is tell you to leave. Let me know when you want to give it a shot, I'll spot for you after I shoot my 10 (who needs limits if we're trespassing anyways?)


In all seriousness. Some spots over there are good regardless of the weather. Some are good only with good weather, but the vast majority are crappy regardless and only hold birds after sunset.
