NR from NC looking for honeyholes

Postby Dingbatter 2 » Mon Jun 25, 2012 11:03 am

OK, just kidding!

I've been pondering the idea of visiting Nebraska and maybe trying my hand at shooting a few ducks. I live on the coast of NC and do well on seaducks and divers...redheads, blackheads mostly, with an occasional Brant. I've freelanced ND a few times too. So, I was thinking of hunting public lands and staying out of everyone's way as much as possible. Is it worth it to come out and stumble around and maybe shoot a few ducks. Basically it's just an excuse to come and visit. I drove through Nebraska years ago and thought it was a great place. I don't have a clue where to go, where to stay, or what to see. That's what makes it fun. Just call me the "tourist duckhunter". :yes: I guess what I'm asking is where would be a good place to start looking that had a lot of public lands with a little bit of water on it. Here in the east most of our public lands are full of crazy people and hunts are by draw. Almost a waste of time.

I'm thinking of maybe 2013, depending on $$$. If anyone is interested in hunting seaducks we may be able to work something out as well.

What time of the duck season are you come out and do have boat? The Platte river can real good at times that is where I hunt most of the time not much for public land on the river,the Sandhill lakes can be outstanding at times and rainwater basin is a good place to Pm me more info and I will try to help you out

I was thinking of flying out and renting a vehicle. I have a 20 foot SeaArk, but they probably wouldn't let me bring it on the plane. :sad:

The rainwater Basin would be your best bet for wade in hunts most of the sandhill lakes you would need a boat and the Platte river you would need to hook up with someone.As for the rainwater Basin they need a lot of rain and that is hard to come by this year Teal season in rainwater Basin is outstanding as well as Oct. Neb. Game and Parks web.has some good info on the RWB. Good luck and I hope you have good hunt in Nebraska.
