evening hunts?

Recommended Posts

i never have really evening duck hunted, always in the morning. Now with the first week over i was thinking about trying it out this afternoon. I was just wondering how much success can be had in the evening hunts? Is it worth it?

I have had huge success with geese in the afternoon. I have shot a few ducks also. I prefer morning hunting. Yet you can still have a awesome evening hunt too.

The best part of evening hunting, in my experience, is watching the birds come in after legal quitting time. You get a glimpse of what dreams are made of.

Successful evenings for me typically have been when ice or other weather during migration are going on. some terrific b'bill shoots in spitting weather and it so dark you could see the muzzle blasts!

That was cool...

I agree on that one. If the weather is really nice out. They probably won't fly until that last few minutes before dark. Which you can't hunt anyways. When the weather sucks. Thats when you want to hunt. Even in the morning I love waiking up to rain, when I am going duck hunting.

I'll let you know in a few hours! I'm going out in a bit to shoot some woodies in a corn field, maybe a goose or 6 smirk.gif

If you can find a field that the ducks are feeding in

and get permision to hunt it, you can have a pretty good afternoon shoot. If you can, just follow the ducks off a lake the afternoon before you hunt and see where they go. The tricky part can be finding the right person to get permision from. Just set up in the field the next day as long as the wind is somewhat the same and the birds should feed there again.

ten four fellas. yeah it wasnt so bad this afternoon. deffinately right after shooting time was over we must of saw 80-100 wood ducks, a few flocks of mallards, and teal burning us left and right. If we would of had 30 more minutes or 15 minutes and good shooting we would of had a nice limit apiece.

My experience is the fun happens after hours. Case the guns and crack a cold one...with the rain today (monday) I may get lucky.

      +1 on the trim tab being the issue.

      Did you do anything to the lower unit? Trim tab might need adjusting.

      Another weekend is in the books. The guys in the cabins did all right but the fishing did slow. maybe due to the water getting stirred up from the winds and the cold front that moved through.. today Monday looks like its shaping up to be a beautiful day. ken is here for a couple days and scott and his parents are coming tomorrow for a day or two. The kids will be coming for the holiday weekends so I guess I better get the boat in the water this week. I held off due to the low water but the park was able to jump through some hoops and dig out the channel so I think I'm ok.  The access was crazy busy yesterday and I still have no clue where they all come from. I guess its just a combination of  other resorts and people with cabins with in 100 mile radius.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!
