The Ice????

Postby Mallyard » Fri Dec 24, 2004 9:07 am

What do you guys usually do for ducks when things are iced over like this? Just switch over to goose hunting? I'd still like to get in a few more productive duck hunts this year.... Any suggestions appriciated...

Drive to Arkansas. Me and 5 other guys slayed 'em day after Christmas. Everybody shot a limit by 9:30. Believe it or not, that was even in Northwest Arkansas, not Stuttgart.

Congratulations on your hunt! Where in NWA did you have such a good hunt? I have not been able to find the birds in such numbers. Hood here Gad there very few Green heads. Birds are scattered. I did hear that the White close to Fayetteville had some good birds during the ice.

NWA hunt

Postby razorbackhunter » Thu Jan 06, 2005 8:21 am

We hunted the upper areas of war eagle creek as it comes into beaver lake. It took us two hours to get up the creek but when we finally found open water, it was unbelievable. I bet we saw over 1000 birds in flight. I've never had that good of a hunt in NWA, and before I moved to KS, I lived in Fayetteville for ten years. After everything thawed, it was not near as good.

What we did when it was icy was just drive around teh lake we hunt. Found this nice little stream to hunt on that was about 4 ft deep and around out of the lake we did real well.

I've had some luck hunting the spillway off the lake near where I live. Water was fast moving and DEEP, but it was better than not hunting. Also, like ks_waterfowler said field hunting or rivers.
