Looking forward to seeing. Stay tune for the dates of grand opening.

what kind of ducks will you be pre releasing also is it a pay by the bird kinda shoot (shoot 3 then have to pay an additional fee for each bird) or pay for one hunt and you get to shoot a true limit of 6 ducks (according to regs of course)
bioman911 wrote:Yes we buy the birds and we have different ponds for them to live in and fly in to eat, We are trying to give and fun hunt where the hunters able to see and shoot the Mallards coming in no they are not wild birds but there are many places that do this style of hunting all over the world, If this is not the type of hunt for you then I understand that but I hope you will still come and join us for some real fun hunts. The birds still fly at 60mph and are very tough to hunt but if anyone just wants to hunt only wild bird I do understand that, We are giving a place for hunters to come and have a great day of hunting, Good place to work your dogs and have a day of pristine hunting,
bioman911 wrote:I can tell you that no duck we have will be clipped in any way they are tagged but that is my law and we would do that anyway just so we could keep up with where they are going if they leave, We are opening this for people that want to hunt and if this type of hunting is not for you I understand that and you would not need to come here to hunt, Everyone has there own way of doing things so I wish you well on you hunts and if you would like to come hunt with us we would be glad to have you,
Thank you for your comments.

I know some hunter don't like this type of hunting but to each his own and I will never argue about the subject so please don't ask me to debate the ideas of released birds over wild bird. I do understand that some people don't like it just as some people don't like eating meat but so people do so please live and let live and God bless all of you and I hope that everybody are able to live free and are proud of our great country.

I was invited on a released quail hunt once, and I can say that is not for me either. I didn't particularly want to go then, but a good friend invited me, so I went. I would never go again. I do think there is a difference though. You virtually have no other options for quail in Georgia. Quail release ends up being a put and take system much like a trout stream of striped bass lake. There were plenty of quail when I was a kid, but I never see quail now that everything is a pine thicket. If you want to quail hunt and work you dog, you really don't have any other choice but to hunt released birds. With duck hunting you do have wild birds to hunt. Also, almost all released quail are going to die one way or another, and are limited to the small area in which they were released. Ant impact they have on the environment is localized to a small area. Released ducks on the other can become feral and breed year after year establishing population like what you see on some lakes in the South. They can also fly off and establish a range miles to hundred of miles from where they were released. There is also evidence that feral mallards have affected mottled duck populations in certain area by breeding with the native mottles, and there is some evidence they can carry disease. The big problem I have with tammie mallard shoots is that they shoot them over corn. If I can't shoot wild ducks over hand distributed corn, they shouldn't be able to shoot released ones over corn either. If a wild mallard, gadwall, or ringneck for than matter flies in, you can't tell me it doesn't get shot. You can also shoot as many ducks as you want on a preserve, but if a tammie escapes and establishes itself on a lake it becomes protected. You know a mallard nesting in Georgia in May isn't a migratory bird, yet you can't legally kill it like other non natives like pigeons because it is still protected by the migratory bird act. I have less problem with a pheasant tower shoot(no I've never done one), because at least then any bird that doesn't get shot isn't going to have an effect on any other wildlife, and will simply end up as buzzard or coyote food. Sorry of the long answer, but i did want to answer your question.
