Campbell's Creek Impoundments

Postby NCfowl » Sat Dec 21, 2013 3:18 pm

Recently hunted them. Be careful because they have switched the numbers of the impoundments. 1 is 2 and 2 is 1 . Anyone know why they done this?

who told you this? according to the ncwrc gameland map they are still numbered like they have always been. I haven't been there in years and wont be, so just curious where you got that info

maybe a local switched the signs because last year to this year at my draw hunts the signs have been changed at the scouting tower.

I know all the people I asked didn't know. There was 4 plus groups in one and we were the only ones in ours. So I know some people are messed up.

Impoundments were labeled correctly at the observation stand a few weeks ago, like above, locals may have changed them...

Why do you assume that a local may have changed the signs? Could have been any idiot or Jr. Commander from anywhere across the state.
I call BS on your assumption.

I wouldn't put it past a local or dumbass state worker.

We hunted the opener at North River and the imp #s and blind #'s were all jacked up between online maps, gps cords, onsite maps and actual blind signs. Complete cluster eff.

Metal man, I agree it could have been a JC and meant nothing in stating a local could have done it, I was just agreeing with nc fowl bc it was thrown out. I could see someone doing it for shits and giggles when Mr. Jeans checks them and they are hunting the wrong impoundment. I'm sure that only the JC's take down the Oyster Creek rd. sign too...?

this is just silly.

if stuff like this keeps up, I can see these public spots getting closed. more headache than its worth

then we can all sit around and gripe and moan about how many birds are sitting rafted on the impoundments that we cant hunt anymore

obviously the state wouldn't purposely change this imp numbers. If your fumbling around in the dark looking for numbers the morning of, id say your unprepared anyhow.

Regardless whether the signs have been switched or not...or who might have switched them...
If you don't know which pond is #1 or #2 you have not done enough pre-hunt homework. As stated above, the state would not, has not, and ain't going to change the pond numbers.
If you show up on the morning of your hunt, (in the dark) and don't where your going #1 or #2, why did you even put in for the draw?
I don't know anything about the Oyster Creek sign being switched....but again, see above.
If you are putting in for a draw hunt for the first time, anywhere, it is your responsibility to learn that area before you get there to hunt. Go scout, set-up your GPS route or trail, pick the spot you plan to hunt, then pick two other spots, because someone is likely to have already done their homework as well and might be where you want to be. By the way, if someone is already in "your" spot, go to another spot, DO NOT SET-UP on top of, or downwind of someone's spread!!! They beat you there fair and square, no need to eff-it up for everyone.
I'm not bored, and my hunting has not been slow...scouting and preparation pays off every time :grooving:
I still call BS on the assumption that a local may have changed the signs! :hammer:

We done our research far from being drawn. Regardless, we scouted, set up in the correct impoundment and had a great hunt. Regardless of who changed it and if they were.

As a local to Campbells creek impoundment and PP I take this on the offensive side, So most of you, that don't understand "WE LOCALS DON'T HUNT IN THERE." Would never duck hunt again if that was my only option!

Thought about starting a new thread given the discussion in this one, but....

Anybody hunted the CC impoundments lately? I've got CC2 this Saturday. Have hunted CC1 a couple times with good success, but it looks to have a lot more grassy/marshy areas to set up in. I'm going to scout CC2 on Friday, but can't get up there till mid-day. Had a buddy hunt CC2 first day after the split and said all the ducks were landing out with the coots. Just curious if anybody else hunted CC2 lately. Do people without permits often set-up in the Pasture Gut or Myrtle Marsh Gut that cut into the East and Southeast sides of the impoundment and skyblast? If so, I assume it is best to get away from those 2 areas.

Thanks in advance.

got to the ramp at 2:45 on Saturday morning, no line.

some sky-busting going on outside the two impoundments, but nothing crazy. We didn't end up shooting anything, there was some teal flying but not as much as usual and nothing that wanted to come in... most actually landed close to where the dike separates 1 and 2.

Had a great time though. Was invited up to Jones for Wednesday morning, so hoping that proves more fruitful.

There was no line because the whole Raleigh Navy was already to here. I passed the ramp Friday at 11:00pm and there were 4 trucks with trailers and 2 cars already there.

We showed up at 6:00am and did well.
