Went to Samworth this past Tues 14th. Three groups - 6 total. Hunted south Middleton. One group had a gadwall and woodies - shot at lot of teal. Another group 11 teal - dive bombed them all morning and us - had woodies and hundreds of mallards. Killed 1 black - 3 mallards - two woodrows. Never go there without a dog! Don't ask me how I know.
Our shooting was not our best. Some of the guys ran out of shells. Same DNR guys there do all the coastal hunts - great guys and very helpful. Go where they say and do what they tell you and it will work. They told us where they saw the birds scouting and to set up there also to quickly move if needed to where the bird are.
It was a great hunt. Birds around all morning and flocks of mallards that will work!
A 15 min cruse down the river - a 1/4m hike on a dike - a short paddle - another 1/4 mile wade. Beautiful area with impoundments all around. The ducks were there! I shot 17 shells and passed on a bunch of woodies over some thick cane grass in fear of loosing them. Bring bug dope and face mask! Light rain the whole morning. We had one camo sheet - used it to cover paddle boat. Would have been nice to had a 4' section or two of the blind grass sheets. Hard to hide - not a lot of cover - had to get up on a cypress in the grass and then it hindered your shots. They give you a marsh stool and a sled to float you gear in. I would go there again.
