Why No Duck Clubs in WI

Just wondering why I never see duck clubs in WI. Not enough interest or not enough ducks? I have heard of private islands but thats about it.

Not enough ducks, especially not on private ground.

there is one that i know of. they rotate 5 blinds on a private marsh. i wanna say it was 1200-1500 a person.

back in ky you cant hardly get on private ground because of all the duck clubs but are ducks down there are more concentrated in one area. the ducks up here seem scattered and few and far between

There is one in NE Wisconsin. They have at least one section of land that is on the Bay of Green Bay. Private membership, I think its about 35 to 40 k to get in. Rich people of the area. It's called "Murder Inc" Look on the plot book of Oconto Co..... Thats how it is listed.

Thats interesting.

If its on the bay how do they keep me and you from hunting it? Sounds like private access to a public spot. :lol3:

Good for them. I wonder if the shooting is really that consistient? Just can't think of that many places where private ground would draw and hold enough birds to sustain an operation like that.

They probably feed corn by the gravity box :lol3:

I don't know if there are private tracks of land big enough except down south by the "stinky" boarder. Everything is 40 acres with large farms being about 200 acres. We are the dairy state. Dairy farms were just big enough to support and feed the cattle (100-200 acres max). This state never farmed for grain, cotton, etc. That is why large tracks of 2000+ acres were so uncommon. Plus, so much in this state is wooded. Would have to do a lot of clearing. In southern IL and along the Mississippi it makes sense cause it is so open, with huge plantations that stayed with the family since the 19th century.

Face it, where hunt clubs are common is where duck hunting is a way of life. Up here the priority is deer hunting...... and BEER! :beer:

Wisconsin was actually the nation's top wheat and hops producing state for a number of years, along with being the nation's top lumber producer. This state has some interesting history.

Wisconsin is actually a banner state for wetlands conservation. I think we still have right around 50% of our pre-settlement wetlands, but that's because most of them are owned by the state and fed.

Probably right the market for guys willing to pay for duck hunting is pretty small and theirs not a consistent enough migration of ducks to hunt one piece of ground and shoot good number of day after day

I actually know some of the guys that are in murder Inc. They get some ducks there of course but with the low-water a lot of their cover areas are too far from the actual water. And I also know they have had some run-ins with people that aren't members hunting where they legally could and weren't happy about it But of course there was nothing they could do about it. A lot of the guys Deerhaunt there too. If it makes you feel any better a couple of the guys want to hunt with me because I usually do better than they do. Know-how and commonsense can triumph over lots of mighty dollars :thumbsup:
