Great Early Season Hunt

Postby Woodiekiller20 » Sat Oct 12, 2013 9:48 pm

Figured I would join this site at some point, I always read on it and I definitely could do some learning here (I'm 16 and have only hunted ducks/geese for 4 years), today was worth posting about... So here is my early season report...I have been hunting a small river near my house (central va) and conditions have been a little iffy. We have been picking off a few here and there before and after school, and we got a pretty good idea of where the woodies wanted to be.
We found a spot the birds were going to and filling up on some sort of seed growing on the river banks. 4 of us hunted early morning and killed 5 birds (woodies), one got swept downstream before we got to it. We then put together a couple canoe floats in some "ducky" stretches and ended up with our 4 man limit of 12 woodies, didn't see any big ducks. I probably saw 75 woodies today, it was ridiculous. Spooked about 30 woodies and 6 or 8 teal at a spot within walking distance of the house, so we are going to try and hunt that on monday morning.
Here is a link to my blog with the pictures on it (files are too big).

That picture was indeed taken from a bridge. Hunted today before and after school, missed the landing location by about 80 yards this morning when we set up, and with woodies, that can mean all the difference. Managed to bring down 2 while floating a small stretch in my kayak this evening, but one of them dove and never came back up :huh:
