Pool 13 Mississippi River-Nothern Illinois 12-03-2008 13:28
– – 10-20 Degrees – Open Water
Just a report from a former Georgia hunter. Moved to Northern Illinois to be near the upper Mississippi River Refuge and all of the great hunting.

Incredible numbers of Canadas and puddle ducks. Filled out by 8:15 on both. Four mallard drakes and two gadwalls, and a limit of geese. Chewy and I just sat and watched the show for a couple more hours as the birds just covered the river. Most of the shallow water is completely frozen, including the refuges, and the open river is the only option unless they go ahead and go south, and there is no indication that is happening yet.

Going back in the morning. Supposed to be 8 degrees and balmy.

You really just need to go grow up in Paducah and now how to call ducks and geese and not just talk about it. Woodsman can do both. He, just like his Dad, the infamous scoudrel of the South, can shoot em in the lips, or the eyes, just which eye do you want shot. Not like these Tennesee boys who just shoot off their mouths.

Did anybody do any good on the South River? They normally dump the water right before the opener. Been many a duck hauled out of there.

That water level will change on you in a heart beat. If you get there early enough, launch and you can go out to the rocky point, on left, and set up. Also, all the way back by the rip rap dike, there is a pocket, or marshy area to set up in. The geese will come right over the dike and you can suck them right in.

You have to be early to be a north GA waterfowl guide to get to either of these spots.

Pickens County, Ga 11-23-2008 09:01
Sunny & Clear, Morning Fog – 10-20 Degrees – Open Water
Spent Opening day with friend on Army Corp Lake.

Temps were 15 degrees at boat launch at 5:00 AM

Fair numbers of ducks, though the Geese left early and did not return.

Hunting Pressure from other hunters moderate. Just enough hunterss to keep birds on the move.

Killed Gadwalls, Buffle Heads, Mallards.

Departed Area at 1:00 PM (note) Army Corp of Engineers did three releases of water and water levels raised over 10 Feet from the time we put out our decoys till we left. Was very disruptive as decoys floated free about every 30 minutes, so we picked all Texas Rig sets and left the long line out with Mojo Mallard, it worked well.

Kendall- If you really need coot blocks, I have found them in N.W. Illinois. I am actively putting together diving decoys for the upper Mississippi hunts on Iowa border, Plan on using coots as confidence decoys. Will be able to use divers in Manitoba

Never thought I would have to hunt so hard to find a deal on Coot Decoys.

Was successful though and at $19.50 for 1/2 Dozen if those weighted dekes I think I got a deal on them. Was a close out they are not selling them in the future.

Next step, taking inventory tomorrow of all Decoys, repainting them and riggin some Texas Rigs as well as adding some long lines. Will probably need some Canvasbacks for those divers over at Guntersville, other than that we should be good to go..The plan is beginning to take shape , with new 25HP Yamaha motor, Flyway specialties blind is on the boat, dog is working good on blind retrieves at Lake Lanier.

Just posting a message to my friends and
others. I am in the process of relocating to
Northern Illinois. I will be in some of the best goose hunting and duck hunting in the midwest. I have set up to be able to work in Canada on an as needed basis, which will allow me free access to hunt without the aid of a resident. I will be doing some
commercial hunting on a limited basis.

I would encourage all that wish to email me
if you like. I will be spending a lot of time from late august until january hunting waterfowl and upland birds.

My two incredible dogs, Chewbacca and Chase
are making the move with me, and I look forward to getting the little yellow dog on
upland birds, since she has turned out to be a naturally endowned pointing lab.

She is a far cry from some of her lesser
relatives.

Private Property hunt, Had good Goose shoot with several flocks of Geese that were wary. Area was cut corn field in river bottom.

Poor concealment and lack of being ready caused us to kill only five when we should have had 10 to 15.

went sunday morning. sucked. had a guy push up on me right before shooting light. shined him off and he plopped down less than 100 yards away. i could id his decoys as he threw them out. Then the bass boys hit the water for a tourney i guess. Let early and helped out one of the bass boys who was stuck in about 2-3 inches of water. No shots fired that i heard all morning.

Will have Roast Canada Goose for Christmas dinner now.

Scouted two spots this am, several nice flocks still coming into the corn field right on time. Am getting their timing down and working on duck blinds and decoys

The first split was a downer for me. Only got to go a couple of times and saw very few birds. couple of missed shots sealed the deal. of course is was kind of hard to get in the grove of things when you are sitting in a blind and it is 70 degrees. hope some cold weather comes are way soon.

Scouting proved to be rewarding. Located nice flock of Canadas with a couple of Snows in Cut Corn field.

Got permission to hunt it via discussions with GA DNR. Will try and save this one for second split opener on the 8th.

Will advise closer proximity of the area once we hunt it. Think I am going to get the dust off the big foot decoys for this one, its going to be a dandy.

I have been hunting out of my Momarsh layout
boat since opening day, and have had great
success on L. Hartwell and on Alatoona.

Shooting mixed bags of mallards, gadwalls, and widgeon.

My big problem is I cannot get out to the
deep water places that I want to hunt because I cannot handle my big boat alone
setting and picking up blocks, and I have no
one to help me with the boat, so I am shooting out of the layout.

I think this is going to be a great year, despite the low water. Dried up potholes are
driving birds to the big water to roost.

Some hunting buddies have been seeing some concentrations of resident birds
on several North and West Georgia lakes.

They are starting to get some concentrations
of puddle ducks in the bean and rice fields in Central Arkansas. Planning a week of fun there.

Conditions are great in the Dakotas right now, and some good flights of Snows, Specs,
and Canadas are starting to filter in with
some smaller flights of puddle ducks.

I observed over thirty BWT teal in one area this weekend. This early teal season has produced the most I have ever seen.

Got in a “last day of the season” teal hunt this afternoon. Four of us (including my 11 year-old son) scratched down 15 blue wings in a planted pond. I whiffed on the first three but finally caught up to them and got my limit of four pretty quickly. I can’t wait for the real season to get here!

Shot geese on a big water setup. Decoyed like
they were on a string.

Went deer hunting Saturday morning and didn’t have any luck. Came out in time to get to a good resting spot where MEaler and myself busted 5 geese.
Didn’t hunt Sunday…

Took the refurbished duck boat out on the water this weekend to check things out. Got all excited about doing some early goose on the lake until the motor quit. Oh well. better now than during the real season on opening morning.

Yeah, Paul, you know I got the birds. We killed 8 geese Saturday morning and pulled 4 geese out on Monday. Me and Mealer got it going on. Just call us Knight and Hale or Hardin and Mealer…

Don’t get that way very often. I know that allatoona is covered up with resident mallards it seems this year. the local ponds seem to have a whole bunch of resident geese as well. Just whether they will leave and be huntable is the questions

Saw my first group of bluewings on a local pond here in cherokee co. It was a small group but it got the juices flowing again for ducks. it won’t be long until early season.

Had a work weekedn at the marsh this past weekend. Planted 6 acres and built 4 new blinds. Things are looking good. Just hope the rain comes back along with some cold weather this fall. We’ve done our part it’s just up to mother nature now.
