Jumpshooting tactics

Postby loondog » Thu Dec 20, 2012 10:19 pm

When jumpshooting waterfowl what variables do you consider (sun, wind etc.) and how do you try and utilize them (sun at back, wind at back)? What are keys to success assuming ducks are there?

Get a good pair of Binos to spot the birds and then use any cover you have to try to get in range. Sun at the back help a little but the key is not being seen. If you are jump shooting a stream, canal or river blind then don't walk the edges, stay wide and pop over on wide spots as the birds like to sit on slow moving stretches.

For me all I need is Cold temps. The birds in my area go to the same places year after year when the temps drop. I jump shoot early in the mornings when the temps are the lowest and birds tend to be holding tight. Other than that I just go walk the areas I know hold birds.
