Reelfoot was fair to middlin this year. Just didn’t get a big push this year. Was talking to friend between Stuttgart and Pine Bluff the last week of season. Ark. Fish & Game bird count for that week in his area was 400K. Same time last year, 1.4 million.
Fair! 60% of what I normally get on ducks and el sucko on the specs….average 15-20 yr and last yr got a grand total of 2. No wind, too many days w/ mirror water on the rice ponds and no moisture/fog to speak of.
We just finished our 2nd annual 5-day conservation goose hunt and I fugged-up by not going last weekend. My buds smashed the specs n snows. For next yr gonna haul my 300+ snow n spec dekes home from Canada and put out a JC power spread in the rice mud.
With a little scouting and putting the miles on the Ford we smashed their asses this year. ifin you wanna kill duck you gotta be ready to put your layouts in the cow pasture and shoot them suckers in the shit! loved the dry land duckin this year!
