Needing a little more help

Postby Kristen » Tue Nov 25, 2008 4:01 pm

Thank you to everyone who gave me such good advice from my last post. I am the wife of a duck hunter who lives in Georgia. For a Christmas present I was looking to book a guided hunt on Reelfoot Lake for my husband. I was able to book a hunt with Mike Newsome for January 13th & 14th.

Here is where I need some more advice. My husband will not be able to bring our dog with him to hunt on the guided trip. Mike said due to insurance reasons he does not allow dogs. Does anyone know if there is any public hunting areas that he could hunt in the afternoons with our dog. I saw a few places that rent john boats on Reelfoot. Would it be worth reserving a boat for him so that he could hunt afternoons with our dog?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!! Just trying to give a duck hunter a great Christmas present.

Its probably not worth the trouble to hunt public land in West Tennessee if you are not familiar with the area.

Your husband will enjoy his hunt with Mike. Some of the motels do not allow dogs. Better check before you carry a dog. Ditto the advice about renting a boat etc. That's mighty risky for several reasons. Those are smallish boats. Not good on windy days on the lake. If your husband picks the "wrong" place to set up public hunting, he might have problems with adjacent hunters. If he hops the "wrong" blind in the afternoon, ditto. The lake is F U L L of stumps just under the surface. Unless you KNOW where you are going, it is very dangerous.
