Welcome! I am in Burlington too! As far as hunting around here, it is hit or miss. Your best bet is to start accumulating some decoys. A couple dozen Mallards with some Teal, Wood Ducks, Buffleheads, and Ringnecks will do. These are primarily the species we see with some Black Ducks, Gadwalls, and Hooded Mergansers mixed in. As far as calling, buy a good call that is comfortable in your hands and stick with it. You will find that calling is one of the last things you need to do in our area.

Now the hard part...finding spots to hunt. Just start asking around :thumbsup:

If you have any spots and need another hunter, shoot me a PM. I have dozens of decoys, blinds, and can call pretty good :thumbsup:

We're right off birch lane.... We got about 10 acres back there, and if you head down birch lane, you'll see a long gravel road. We're having to sell our house first but we'll be building there hopefully soon

i have my best luck in a 1.5 acre pond, especially since its located to popular river blinds on the calawba river. put a game cam angled at the shallow end of the pond and see what comes in early morning. this upcoming spring plant some millet and buckwheat around it and you will have ducks galore. :beer:

It ain't worked that way for me. Everytime I think I got all the sh!t I need, they come out with something new, and I end up with more sh!t and less money. :lol3:

Nevermind the repairs and replacing old and worn out gear.
