Near watertown 10-31---11-02 very tough. Ducks are not sitting on public water. Few fields out so the # of fields to hunt are small. Tough to get permission. Should change in the next few days with more birds coming in and more crops getting harvested. More birds and crops out to the north.

Hunted near De Smet, which is about 40-50 south of watertown from Oct 19-28.

We did pretty well. Limited out field hunting mallards every day. Every farmer we ask said it was OK to hunt ducks, but we really expressed that we were duck hunting only.

Here's a satellite tracking program that the Arkansas DNR put a few mallards to study their flights. Kind of interesting. You can see where the mallards are daily and follow their flight tracking.

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
