New to Utah

Postby scduckhunter48 » Tue Oct 29, 2013 8:39 pm

Just moved from SC to Utah. Trying to get involved in some duck hunting here not sure where to start. Always hunted in swamps back home and I dont see a lot of those around here. Any advice on the best places to get started would be great. I dont have a boat, i enjoy the wading and hunting in the water. Also if there are any hunting groups or clubs around that may meet and hunt that would be awesome too. Thanks in advance.

What part of the state are you in? Once we know that we can help out a little more.

Sorry I meant to put that. I live in cottonwood heights but I'm willing to travel to wherever the good hunting is!

Hey man, I'm from SC too (Spartanburg are). I'm used to jumping wood ducks on woodland ponds, and floating around in a Jon boat. Out here is way different. I live in Eagle Mountain and have been trying to find an access point on the west side of Utah Lake since the end of elk season....no luck. I've never been to Farmington or Ogden Bay, but I am familiar with the Strawberry Resevoir area. It starts to freeze up there earlier than it does down here, but access is great, and I'll bet you could hunt it into December before it's iced over. Someone tell me if I'm wrong...I guess if I am, take an ice fishing rig with you so it ain't a wasted trip.

Years ago I remember wrestling down there in high school....had an FFA instructor from Walhalla too; at least you're close to Clemson

I spent my summer in Charleston... Summerville specifically, and am glad to be back. Not that I didn't like it there, but I can actually hunt where, when, and how I want in Utah. I am originally from Idaho. Hunting leased property, weird shortened season dates, and in an area with little public shooting area where you can just go and hunt is weird to me. And I can actually see here, unlike the claustrophobic hardwoods and lack of elevation change most of SC consists of. You should feel "free at last" here in Utah. Go where you want, when you want, hunt where you want, and kill your ducks. No draws, alligators, or not nearly as many mosquitos. Take advantage.

On another note.... My wife and I are moving to Tennessee this coming February - we are not looking forward do all of the above mentioned southern hunting styles... draws, blinds, shortened season, and lack of public property. Still depressed about it. :mad:
