Missisquoi WMA

Hey everybody. Me and some friends are heading to Missisquoi WMA this fall and was wondering if anyone has been there before, and had any luck

Did you get a blind site, or are you just hunting public land in the Missisquoi? If you are hunting public land in the MIssisquoi river delta area make sure to get in early and have a plan B and C if you first choice is already taken.

Good luck,

Im from mass so haven't been able to get up there and do any scouting yet, but a friends cabin is 10over mind down the road and from looking at maps I think we're aiming more towards gander bay area. Nope no blind site wasn't aware ct did blind site drawings. Any other WMA open to waterfowl hunting in the area?

I dont know how you are planning on hunting, but just so you are aware, Goose can have stationary blinds (and its packed) and Gander can only have boat blinds to hunt. CHSPKS hit the nail on the head, you better have a couple backup plans and get there early. This is especially true the first few days of the season. Im not sure when you guys will be coming up, but weekdays may be a little easier to get a spot and try things out.
They might get my guns, but they're gonna get the bullets first!!

Quite frankly, without a couple weeks of scouting, I'd save yourself a trip and try to find something closer to home. The best areas are crowded, and most are rather intolerant new faces.
This year is going to be very challenging with the lack of wild rice on the refuge.

Good luck...

If you guys are hunting out of a boat blind when you come, their is always the broad lake to try...... If you come in November you will have a good shoot. Like Skybuster said their are allot of stationary blinds in all the bays branching from the Missisiquoi.

I have hunted the refuge at Blind Site A. First day was awesome. Second day was not so good. I got the spot through my uncles gun club. They have a seminar every year. You get decoys, win stuff, do skeet and trap ect. Its really fun to hunt in there.
