Where can I hunt near Memphis?

Postby Honker » Sun Dec 18, 2005 10:58 pm

Just getting back into duck hunting. I live in Germantown Tennessee and my 11 yr old is interested in dropping a mallard. We crossed the Memphis Arkansas Bridge and spent the day driving around Forrest City, Wynne, Bald Knob, Hughes, and Earle ....we ventured off the beaten path and saw tons of birds....apparently finding a place to hunt is not to difficult if you have a big bank account, unfortuanately I do not....any advice on where I can hunt public land near Memphis...any hope or has it just turned into a corporate outings for the bluebloods...

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...thanks. perry

Go hunt with these guys...

There just up the road from Memphis in Covington, TN. Have never hunted with them, but have come in contact with one of the guides. Super nice guy. Plan on taking a trip to hunt the timber with them later this season.

I guide/hunt the Weiner, Balch area.
Send me a PM.
There are a # of WMA's in the area, but most are very dry right now. They do afford some quality hunting under normal conditions. The Cache is dryer than it's been in 75 years. The folks that have water right now have been pumping it from wells, at the cost of about $25 per hour X 100's of hours, in some cases. Naturally, they are very proud of it. There really aren't that many ducks in the area, but naturally, the areas that have water, have ducks.
I would suggest investigating the WMA's. It would actually be a good time to do so with few, if any, hunters to disturb. The GW's are friendlier to folks with youngsters in tow, na dcan be very helpful in pointing out the more productiive locations. Take a weapon, you might stumble onto a pothole or jump a few in a wet spot and pray for rain.

Drive a long any part of N 240 and look for any holes along the way. I hunt more in side the 240 than any other place last year. It may take a little walk but you can get to the right hole and kill a few ducks. After about 9:00 they will all be gone but it is fast when they do show up.

I have gotten up killed my ducks and be at wrok by 8:00 most days. Don't know how it is this year. I will start hunting them around Memphis frist of the year.

I have been hit other spots so far this year. Not many ducks that I have seen yet.
