I have been in NC for over a year and am beginning to wonder where everybody goes to hunt. Too many activists and antis in the Piedmont area. I spent 10 years in MS and I do miss the ducks. I am starting to have withdrawls If I don't kill a goose or duck this year, I might have to go to detox! Where are the ducks?

How many North Carolina duck & goose hunters out there, and where do you hunt. :thumbsup:
Hey... I "think" I'm a duck hunter. Atleast when I lived in South Georgia, I was. Now that I live in Charlotte the only waterfowel I see is a bunch of geese in the parkin' lot! It would be nice to know where a guy can hunt ducks in NC.
Any clues?

Are there any ducks in North Carolina? That is a crazy question! I live in Camden North Carolina and there a ducks everywhere. Most of the time we go hunting and kill aleast two ducks apeace at the least. We scout a lot in the off season and build our blinds to add to our success. We have so many wood ducks that it is getting borring killing them. Some send me some pintails!

I'm from gates county, and I hunt the swamps! The Chowan river is less than two miles from my house but until the swamps freezee....I'll stay in the swamps! Scouting is the key. If you can find a large swamp and you get the time to go scouting ...go. Look for the tell tell signs....feathers on the water, birds talking it up in the early morning, flushing birds up ahead of ya ! In the afternoon take your vehicle where you can look across a field to see what is flying into or out of these swamps! Ps. if you think that a good ole' boy is going to tell you where his honey holes are :toofunny: ! honestly, I learned by getting with another hunter in the area. I was always early to meet him when we scouted, I was always early when we met to go hunting. If you wish to fight the crowds.... I can recomend the pamlico sound impoundment! lots of birds, lots of hunters, and you had better be at the ramp before 4:00 am ( cant launch before then) and you had better be prepared to walk in deep mud to get to a blind. Other than that it is a great place to hunt.

I hunt the High Rock, Tucker Town lake area. It seems the duck numbers are dropping. Three years ago you could kill your limit. Now your lucky to see you limit. I ususally take a trip with a few buddies to Reelfoot Lake, TN once a year. The number of ducks there are unreal.

I live in the Piedmont, I hunt the local lakes, impoundments, rivers, and head to the coast. I just moved back from around Lake Erie, although the Piedmont isn't on an ancestral route, there are birds if you scout - such as the two geese I shot last sat after scouting them.

Main thing is since it is pressured, be sure to be considerate of other hunters and let the ducks work.
