For those who enjoy duck hunting in the fields, this is the place.
Howdy, I'm a first year student at Texas Tech and was wondering how I should go about scouting for field hunting mallards.

Drive, drive, drive. Ideally, if you're hunting saturday morning, you want to set up exactly where the birds were at dark on Friday. Not in the same field, I mean right where they were.

Effective scouting means in my book to locate a refuge good roost and then draw a 2-3 mile radius circle and look up Google earth for terrain and on the map as to land ownership and then driving to those birdy looking fields that may hold sufficient feed and get lucky to see some field activity. following the birds flight to the field X ...best bet is the fields nearest the roost as on modest goose/duck set-ups they ill se the spread and buzz and check it out even though that is not the field and it will give you a chance to warm up the barrels and have some fun
