Planning Trip

Postby reelsouthern1220 » Wed Jan 20, 2010 4:42 pm

My dad and I are planning a trip with some friends to come do some duck and pheasant hunting. We are thinking about coming the week of Columbus Day holiday because of me and a buddys school schedule. I know hunting is hunting and it is far from predictable, but is that too early to have good numbers of ducks? Thanks for any info.

Okay great. Another question I had was how may decoys should I bring? Sounds to me like the land we are hunting on has potholes and thats what we will be hunting. So how many would I need for that? And I have never field hunted ducks before so I dont know if I have the goods to get that done haha but if thats where the ducks are what kind of suggestions would ya'll have for gear in the situation? Thanks

Have enough flexibility to field hunt or hunt the potholes. And please don't hunt the roost. You can but it will wear out your welcome quick.

We don't use many in the potholes, no realy need to. In the fields you can use canada goose decoys, they'll go to them...spinners can help too.

Okay well that sounds manageable. Is there a chance of geese being there the same time or are the Canada deeks just good for confidence. I would set up for ducks and geese if that'd be possible.
