Four wayward hunters need help!

Postby OperatorX » Fri Jul 28, 2006 12:23 pm

Hello all,

I'm new to this site and registered to gain some awareness regarding duck hunting in general. My brothers and I started hunting about 4 years ago. We started slow with pheasants and have done some geese as well. We started hunting late in life as our father was not interrested in hunting, but a friend of the family got us each hooked individually. We'd like to expand our knowledge and start taking ducks as well. We live in the S.E. part of the state, were most fun hunting is restricted. We're happy to travel hunt, the problem is where? I'm interrested in hearing about any venues and or guide services that can help us get started an learn. This is something we'd like to pass along to our children as well, but we realize we need to learn a bit ourselves first!

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Signed,

Four lost souls...

Thanks Honk, I'm in Limerick. We hunt the fields across from the golf course at Evansberg for Phesant when the season opens. I wasn't aware it was decent location for ducks and goose? We tried looking for ducks by the water there last year but I think they were scared away by then.

Have you actually try setting up ground blinds in the park?

I'm in Perkiomenville (small world!).
Why don't you try the Schuykill River at Linfield? You can also hunt pheasant and rabbiits there.

A good bet for some jump shooting, depending where you are, is to drive some back roads looking for farms with streams running through them. I've had some pretty good success that way. 4 people might be a little crowded so if the land and stream are big enough 2 guys each take different directions. Mostly get Mallards and Woodies with an occasional Greenwing.
Here's hoping for a lite rain every hunt!

Oh, yeah, this should go without saying. Make sure you ask permission. And if you get a couple, share them with the land owner. If he likes duck he'll be more than happy to let you hunt again.
