Instead of following all the other waterfowl hunters to areas where pressure is heavy on ducks, geese and other acquatic game birds., search for out-of-the- way waters where there is very little pressure.
Finding these hidden hunting places on both public and private property takes a little work but it’s certainly worth the effort. Here are three ways to get started.
- Study topo maps and aerial photos.
- Talk to biologists, game wardens, and foresters.
- Make connections with area trappers and big game hunters. You never know who has insight into a prime piece of hunting ground.
You will eventually locate one or two places that waterfowl like and where no one else is hunting and you will have a private, unspoiled season.
