I've never hunted outside AL. Only ducks around where I grew up hunting were wood ducks. Since I moved down here I pretty much just hunt the marshes/open water in the delta. I'll hear the occasional wood duck but not much.

It's nice being able to hunt longer than 30 mins.

Hell with duck hunting.... I'm done with them until this global warming thing is over and we start having actual winters again. grin


Yeah, well, I always heard there were three kinds of suns in Kansas: sunshine, sunflowers, and sons-of-bitches.

Hunt wood ducks in North Alabama and South Alabama about 10 - 15 times per year, morning only. Will hunt until about 30 minutes after legal shooting time and then take off waders and head to the deer stand. Try to go to Arkansas when I can.

I used to be. Had leases in arkie, Missouri, and the Sip. Now I may only go once a year now that I live in bama. Heck the duck hunting I had in central Florida public land was better than I can find here. Leasing got too expensive for me. Got a buddy in Selma that has one of the best duck hunting spots I’ve ever hunted, Alabama or anywhere. Flooded timber tons of flooded marsh. Kill mallards, pintails, teal, geese you name they’re all there. If I had a place to shoot woddies without having to be invited I would hunt more.

I love duck hunting. Last year was ROUGH!!!! Thankfully when the Lord closed a door, a window opened. Was the best deer season in years because I seriously hunted them.

We had a 15 acre pond freeze up TWICE in early 2018 thick enough to stand on. Single digit mornings.

I'd love to give it a go......but to do it right, that's a rich man's game. To consistently kill big ducks, you gotta drive at least a few ours north, south or west from where I'm at.

Not necessarily a "rich mans game" ...it can be if you want to limit out on Mallards every weekend sure. Me and a couple of friends chase them every weekend of duck season on public water most of the time and we have a great time. Been after them for probably 20 years. It's just like any other hunting...good years bad years and terrible years, but that comes from not being near a major flyway. We kill a mixed bag most years...most of them woodies but we do get Redheads, Ringnecks, Gadwalls, and the occasional Mallard....and we are just poor rednecks.

Get a boat and I can point you to enough boat ramps between here and the boot heel of Missouri you'd never figure all the areas out to effectively hunt them in your lifetime. All for free.

What are the laws regarding hunting the public reservoirs on the Coosa river system? Can you take a boat up one of the smaller tributary creeks to hunt backwaters with any success in Alabama? Thanks guys!
