2013 Early Season Teal

Postby BRuss0426 » Fri Aug 16, 2013 3:51 pm

Hey everyone! My name is Brian and I'm new to duck hunting in Indiana. I moved down here two years ago, but have mainly stuck to duck hunting up in Michigan with family. I'd like to early season teal hunt down here before opening day up north but have no idea where to even begin to look for teal to hunt. I live in Hamilton county. If anyone could give some recommendations or is maybe looking for a hunting partner, please let me know!

Hamilton county does not have a lot of options for a teal hunter if i were you i would get on dnr website and look at the public waterfowl areas, and plan a trip. Welcome to indiana, and if your ever in the northern part of the state i would be glad to show you how to kill a few teal.

We usually find teal every year. But you HAVE to scout. They move around a lot and a cold front can be your best and worst enemy.

Dude don't be a d@%k. I moved down here 3 years ago and am still having problems. Indiana isn't exactly the hot spot for waterfowl, the lack of public land in the state of indian makes it hard for anyone to find a place to hunt, let alone all of rules and details that the InDNR doesn't put on their website like no hunting tues, thurs, sunday and all of that BS.

We are supposed to be helping each other, not jump someones case because they ask for some help. be like dsdstoffel and give them information on where to find places, don't give them your sweet spot just be like i hear Down stream of Owensboro has some ducks...that gives them a place to start looking and if by God they get your place then find a new one or get their earlier.

Lets be nice here.

I re read his post and he was just offering advice on the DNR website and even offered to show some spots in northern IN. (Might be worth while to take him up on that offer, meet a guy off here and maybe find a spot or two to hunt!)

I'm sorry, the quote i quoted was the helpful one and that was what i was trying to get at. We're all here for the same reason, to promote the sport of waterfowling.

I wasnt being a douche i was just stating as you reitterated Indiana has very few ducks and spots im not going to tell you where to look as thats probably a spot i hunt also after i spend some time scouting to see if ducks are there. Go to indnr website they list areas you can hunt, go from there.

Dont get your panties in a wad cause someone told you to scout... i have spent thousands of dollars searching out holes some i may never step foot in. But when i show up there it will be because i scouted it out not asked some dude on the internet. Some of my spots range up to 3-4 hours away.

Now when i run into guys on a body of water and they are there after scouting themselves i will share what info i know with them in hopes both of us can get the most out of what our public waters offer. Hope to see you in one of my spots soon. good Luck this fall and knock em in the beak....
