Teal Hunting Pamlico

Postby AWSmallard » Tue Jul 15, 2014 5:40 pm

now that the early season teal dates have been set I am debating visiting a buddy around greenville to do some teal hunting, not asking for spots, just wondering if the pamlico river normally holds a good ammount of teal during the early season, i would scout but live far away from greenville. thanks for any info!

From here on out don't post specific river questions in the forum. If you have a important question about an area p.m somebody who you see is helpful, and has talked about the area you want to learn about in the past. But for some advice....

Save the gas. The teal are way to unpredictable for you to drive that distance. Pamlico is not the place to go if you have not scouted it before in the daylight anyways. Far too dangerous and things to go wrong.

I agree with stealfeathers on the teal being unpredictable during teal season. If you have somewhere they are coming to in the morning and are feeding, go there the next day. They literally can leave overnight, sometimes for no apparent reason, but usually weatehr systems or even constant north winds move them in or out easily. We hunt open water for em and some days it is lights out and some days it is completely dead. The best thing you can do for teal is put some time on the water and scout and watch the weather and dont have high expectations.

Its always duck season, there is just a long break from february to september.

In that area, expect more boats than birds and the "hunters" will more than triple the number of birds!

Should be a good hunt.
The Mosquito's are as large as teal, so bring extra shells.

Bring fishing rods. At least then you can salvage the hunt with fish as opposed to the immense frustration that is known as "ENC Early Teal Season."

I go every season. Sometimes its taken me a few trips to finally get on what birds are in the area to have some success. Most of the time I don't, its very hit or miss. I stay away from the Pamlico Co / Goose Creek area.
