Pros and Cons of jump shooting...

Postby tstroud05 » Wed Dec 03, 2008 7:54 pm

I am going to try to jump shoot ducks on the 6th. Is it hard to find ducks this way? I am thinking about going to a WMA and hitting up the ponds. My buddy and myself have never hunted duck before. We have no decoys so I figured our best bet was to try jump shooting them around ponds. What do you guys think?

I've had good luck...

Creeks are good too, you don't NEED deeks, just set up on the bank and wait for 'em to fly by.

Might need a dog for deep water or heavy cover retrieves. Jump shooting can be good but you got to know a good quiet approach to the pond, creek, river, etc. Good luck.

I have the dog covered. I have a Lab and my buddy has a German Shorthair Pointer. :thumbsup:
