Hey mark,I'm a mass-hole but I hunted ducks in Rhode Island for a few years. RI is the best kept duck hunting secret. I can never find any post on the sites. I hunted the Sabin point area and loved it.

Good Hunting Ray

Sabin pt. has plenty of blubills,just anchor out and put out a little spread and you will see hundreds. the otherside of the channel has more mallards, blacks and widgeon.

I'm going to be hunting in the Ocean State the Sunday after Thanksgiving. I booked a hunt and am going to blasting at some sea ducks somewhere around Middletown. I can't wait. I will let y'all know how it goes. :salude:
If the hunting is cold, luckily so is the beer!

Rhode island hunter..... Hell yah!

Looking for hunting buddies to help me kill some of the Canadian's. It's now early season, headed back to field 1 in the south shore managment area, this weekend. There is a new pit blind in that field, it's cool.

Any Rhody Hunters that want to roll, let me know!

I would love to join you in a hunt at the South Shore Management Area if you still have room.

I have done most of my hunting in North Eastern Connecticut. But I am getting all set up for duck hunting in RI. I live in Narragansett currently.

Pm me if you still have room. I would love to shoot some geese.

-Regards
Sean
Get out there...

Mike,

I work in Newport also, not at Naval Station Newport like you. (NPD)

I'm ready to go when you are. I have lots of gear, and a cannoe.


It looks like Silenthunter and I will be trying to get hunt this weekend, if everything works out. Let me know when things are good for you.

Being former Army guy myself, I know how hard is is to hunt away from your home state.

Bow hunting I'm in.

The more the better.

Myself, a long time hunting buddy Scott, and a new friend that I met here on "duck hunting chat" Silenthunter, will be hunting at O'dark early. It is early season, and we don't know what will happen. We will be hunting in a feild that has just been cut over the past three days. Tons of corn in the field, I just hope that the birds have found it.

I will post our results after the hunt. I hope we have some photos of birds to posts as well. Wish us luck.

The corn has hit the ground, and so did the birds. Today was one of those days that you read about. The day started out with a high pressure system with stars over head. By the time we had all the decoys in place, the weather was starting to turn. Clouds comming in from the southwest with a nice wind kicking up.

I met with my new found hunting buddy Silenthunter and another that I have hunted with for years. We got down in the pit for a cup of coffee and started shooting the breeze. Before I could put my cup to my mouth, "HONK-HONK!" It was on!

To make a long story short, see the attached photo of our limit of early season honkers.

I think that I will take Silenthunter along with me on all my hunts, I think he's good luck.

New to the sport

Postby bartman » Sun Mar 18, 2007 8:29 pm

Hello Rhody's,
New to the site and new to the sport. I started shooting (mostly trap and skeet) last spring and tried duck hunting last fall. A buddy took me out on the North Shore of MA and it was a blast. Now I'm totally hooked.

Anyway, the North Shore is a long way to go for ducks, and from what I've read here, there are lots of great opportunities closer to home, I just need to find them. Can anyone suggest any links or reference material that might help with the searching (I really don't know where to begin looking)? Things like where hunting is/is not permitted.

I'd also love to tag along on a hunt sometime if anyone has room for a responsible newbie. I do not have a boat or a dog, but I've got everything else. Obviously any other suggestions of places to try are also very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance and I hope to see you on the water.
Chuck

Hey Chuck,

Did you get out for the early goose season or the early duck?

Mark,
No early season goose in RI, actually nothing yet in RI, but I did make it back up to the North Shore with my buddy for the MA coastal opener. Got one black duck, and we had a chance at some goose. We whiffed but a good morning. Unfortunately it was pretty warm and totally calm. Not a ton of birds moving that morning.

Since then, I've been getting out in MA with another buddy. We found a spot inside the 495 belt as that is more convenient for him (he just had twin girls, suprised he gets out at all). It's not ideal, but there are some ducks around and it's supposed to improve as the season progresses. We're still looking for new opportunities, but it is tough.
Thanks,
Chuck
