The north season ends Dec 31 for ducks and a day later for geese. There are several diked marshes up in the Port Clinton area. The largest of which are the Mallard Club, Magee Marsh, and Pickerl Creek. All three offer great opportunities. The Mallard Club is open to the public. Magee and Pickerel are both permit only sites. Permits are given out lottery style to each zone and you are only permitted to hunt in that zone. Opening days are about 50-50 shot of getting a draw, the rest of the season there are generally spots available at any time. There are also a few other smaller areas, some of which are diked and managed by the DNR.
I love my job, it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.
