Pintail question

Postby leftyhunter » Sun Sep 08, 2013 8:52 am

This year a bull Pintail is number one on my hit list. Any tips or advice on how to increase my chances of getting one would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Shoot me a PM with your address, and I'll FedEx one to you. You're welcome to come with me to shoot your own, but license are expensive here.

Where you hunt, I'm not sure if there's anything specific you can do...try your best to hunt an area that's holding Pintails, and it should all fall into place.

Hope you get one!

Get as far away from here as possible

Easiest way is to get a guide around the Outerbanks. Thats how I got on them a few times. Kerry Harris out of cedar island is good.

If you know you are gonna see one in your area, decoy placement and knowing when and how to call them is key. They are awesome birds to work, if done correctly you can greatly increase your chances. Killed and seen quite a few up here in VA.

Pintails are not a rare bird to get here in NC at the coast. Your best chances are going to be the sound side reefs of the outerbanks oregon inlet down to portsmouth island or if you have access to hunt an impoundment around skeet.

Go to the coastal bays in SE Texas. They are as thick as anywere and the locals pray for other species to break the monotony of pintail and redhead.
