Yeah it does suck, especially when the marsh is only 5 minutes from my house and I still dont waste my time going out there. You get all the wannabe duck hunters out there. That think that going out there with just a gun and sitting on the dike and shooting at everything that comes with in a 100 yards is duck hunting. Thats all there doing is ruining the hunting for everyone else. It would be a good marsh if you could get rid of all the pass shooters out there and actually let the ducks work.

yea in the south horicon marsh you get a lot of skybusters, gotta either plan on going when no one else is out there, so later in the season, or venture around the marsh and look for potholes with no people on them. The north side of the marsh has a few spots that dont have TOO much competition.

Picked up some decoys - 6 FB, 12 silos and 12 GHG Mallard motion shells. I have gotten permission to hunt a 80 acre wheat/alfalfa field and a large farm with corn, wheat, soy beans and alfalfa. I plan to scout as the season gets closer, but any thoughts on which field would most likely have geese during early season? No corn is out yet.

Usually skip beans and go to corn as soon as it comes down...especially if it chopped

beans are hard to hind in but once the snow flies those decoys really stand out and really get the attention of the birds. A lot of the fields we'll be hunting this year are beans but corn is still nice and easy to hide in.

fowl usually hit beans during the rain or right after the rain because it softens up the beans and stuff to make it easier to eat.

If you are looking for a duck spot to access without a boat I would go check out Bong. It is a decent hunt early in the season, cheap (If I remember right $2 for a blind spot) and easy to hunt with a pair of waders. Once the pheasant season starts the ducks are pretty much nonexistent so don't waste your time after that.

Otherwise, start looking at craigslist for a canoe. I'm a relatively new duck hunter and after picking up a canoe before last year I haven't been able to stop exploring places.

Lol it was a steep embankment. The stick was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. I don't go around looking for sticks to fall on. :tongue:
