New to georgia, does anyone have information on Wildlife management areas or National wildlife refuges in georgia, specifically do any of them have morning draws for spots, do any have boats for the blinds provided. I know in arkansas and missouri they do.

YES GA HAS WMAS. THERE ARE SOME YOUTH WATERFOWL AREAS WHERE YOUTH ONLY CAN SHOOT (PRETTY GOOD ONE ON LAKE JULIETTE). ALL THE QUOTA HUNTS THIS YEAR HAVE ALREADY BEEN DRAWN BUT YOU CAN HUNT STAND BY. IT IS 1ST COME 1ST SERVE AND IF SOMEONE DOESN'T SHOW YOU HUNT IN THEIR SPOT. IN MOST CASES THERE ARE THREE TO A BLIND ON QUOTA HUNTS. I KNOW IF YOU HUNT AT THE WMA IN DARIEN, GA THEY SUPPLY THE BOATS (IF NEEDED). THE BLINDS ARE 2-10 ACRE FLOOD DIKES OR SOMTHING LIKE THAT. I BELIEVE THIS WAS AN OLD RICE PLANTATION BEFORE IT WAS GIVING TO THE STATE. SOME WMAS YOU DON'T HAVE QUOTA HUNTS AND YOU JUST NEED SOME WADERS. CHECK OUT http://georgiawildlife.dnr.state.ga.us/ FOR MORE INFO. GOOD LUCK

YOU CAN HUNT STAND BY EVERY TIME I HAVE GONE PEOPLE DIDN'T SHOW. YOU CAN TRY RUM CREEK NEAR MACON I HAVE KILLED SOME TEAL THERE EARLY AND A FEW MALLARDS THAT WERE HEADING TO THE DU PROJECT THERE. WHEN I LIVED IN MACON WE WOULD TRY TO CUT OFF THE DUCKS GOING TO THE DU PROJECT AND THE YOUTH WATERFOWL AREA. I BELIVED THAT THEY ARE SOME RINGNECKS ON THE OPEN WATER BUT NEVER TRIED THEM.

i have hunted there alot .there are alot of ringnecks there mid dec. I have always killed them where you are talking about cutting them off. they will only decoy to numbers of ducks and the right kind.(HINT.. you only find ringnecks where there is coots). there are also a few local mallards. i shot 3 with local bands @ turkey day.

YEA WHERE WE NOW HUNT THERE ARE A LOT OF RINGNECKS AND WE PUT OUT ABOUT 2 DOZEN RINKS AND SOME COOTS. I ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT RINGNECKS WOULD LAND IN THE BACK OF THE DECOYS BUT THE 2ND WEEKEND OF THE SEASON THE LANDED INTO THE WIND IN FRONT OF THE DECOYS. I ALSO WAS TOLD TO OUT IN SOME CANS OR REDHEADS IN THE SPREAD. I HAVE CANS IN THE SPREAD AND IT SEEMS TO WORK. HOW ARE YOU PUT IN OUT YOUR SPREAD?

I DON'T KNOW KNOW WHAT YOUR CHANCES ARE TO GET TO HUNT STAND BY, I HAVE NEVER DONE IT, BUT EVERYTIME I HAVE GONE TO DARIEN SOME HUNTER HAVE NOT SHOWN UP. IN DARIEN YOU ARE NEAR SALTWATER, SO I GUESS IF YOU HAD A BOAT YOU COULD HUNT THE SALTWATER MARSH, BUT I WOULDN'T KNOW WHERE TO START. I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE DAN DEATON PLACE.

I USE A J TYPE PATTERN. THE LONG END WILL 45 DEGREE THE WIND(COOTS LOTS OF COOTS). WHEN IT BENDS IT IS VERY THIN LINE OF DECOYS. ALMOST A SINGAL LINE. KEEP COOTS ON THE OUTER EDGE THEN THROUGH SOME HEN MALLARDS OR GADS OUT BACK TO THE BANK . TRY TO PUT MOST OF YOUR DRAKE RINGS IN THE BEND. ONLY A FEW FEET IN FRON OF YOU. ALSO THE BOTTOM OF MY J IS MORE LIKE AN L WITH A FINGURE ON IT. REMBER MOST DUCKS WANT COMIT AND LAND CROSSING YOUR DECOYS BUT BUZZ THE EDGE SO YOU CAN USE THE LONG J TO CUT OFF COVES AND THE REST OF LAKE.

i HUNT OVER 80 COOTS/30 RINGS/20 HEN MALLARDS/A MOJO/ON A VERY CALM MORNING AND MY SON(8 YEARS OLD)IS WITH ME A REMOTE CONTROL HEN MALLARD/ NO GREENHEADS!!!!!!!
