Quick Question about Jackson County WMAs

Postby Griff017 » Wed Nov 11, 2009 7:58 pm

I got a quick question about the Jackson County WMAs.

I went to the website from outdooralabama which led me to this link about the Jackson WMA

http://outdooralabama.com/hunting/wildl ... 202010.pdf

For the waterfowl season, it says NO OPEN SEASON.

I thought you were allowed to duck hunt in Raccoon Creek Mud Creek etc etc.

I am sure I am just missing something as I am very new to duck hunting.

Thanks

There are a couple of WMA's that allow hunting, specifically Crow Creek and Mud Creek WMA. If you are planning to hunt there opening day you better pack a tent and get there a day or two early. There are a couple of refuges that don't allow waterfowl hunting; North Sauty just west of Scottsboro and Raccoon Creek near Stevenson.

If you are planning to hunt north of the railroad tracks in Mud Creek you better have a Go Devil. If you stay near the river channel you should be ok with a regular flat bottom boat.

Good luck!

Don't know what you were looking at, the link you posted won't open for me.

http://www.conservation.alabama.gov/hun ... s/wmamaps/

This one will tell you about Mud Creek, Coon Creek, and Crow Creek.

Only certian sections of Crow and Coon creek are open to hunting.

Mud Creek is all open to Waterfowl hunting, but some of the "best" spots are somewhat difficult to get to.

God Bless you

Yes!!!
That entire area, including the "preacher Blind", is open to the public on First come basis.
I killed my first duck at Mud Creek, 42 years ago, been hunting it ever since.
Just PM me and I'll be glad to tell you more.

God Bless you

Killed my first banded duck (Gadwall) there in December of 1975 and observed 83 birds taken from one blind (12/76) by 11:00 on opening day there. Google Earth appears to show the milfoil is back in full force there.

One of my life goals is to own one of the farms up top on Womack Mountain. :bow:
Sent from my Sumerian tablets

Does the number of bands claimed simply mean you have an Ebay account?

Do you have to hunt in a WMA on the TN River in Alabama, or can you hunt the main river? I have been trying to get this answered for a while now.
