Waterfowl legalities

Post by Iluv2hunt » Thu Jul 18, 2013 5:50 pm

What do I need to be legal to hunt ducks? I admit I have hunted since I was in diapers, but never duck hunted.

Now, getting up at midnight and driving across the state to sit in line at an STA doesn't really appeal to me. What I would like to do is shoot ducks that come into these big cypress ponds on my lease. Mostly woodies, and especially later in the winter.

I understand the shotgun needs to be plugged, and you need steel shot. Got that covered. I posses a sportsman's gold license. What other licenses do I need to be legal?

Next question: If I walk into one of these ponds and shoot into some ducks, are they going to scatter and my shoot be over? Or should me and my buddy get on each side of the pond and shoot together, to keep them flying like you do on a dove field?

make sure you have a plug in the gun so you can only get three shells one in the chamber two in the tube.

learn you ducks. I have not duck hunted in 10 years

If you think ducks is addicting try turkey hunting . If you apply for any quotas down South for your boy and need help let me know . If I'm not out guiding my son on his birds , I can help you personally or point you in the right direction .
