Like any hunting it can be boom or bust. We farm next to the wetland. I could give you a bird report when it gets a little closer to your date. Do you know which blind he got?
Not a duck hunting expert by any mean, barely hunted at all. My dad got drawn for a 1-23 hunt there in the winter, talked to the manager there and he was really helpful. Waders are all that are needed, a boat would be way to much (in my opinion as well, its not THAT big of an area). Lots of walking paths to get you close to your blind so you might want to hold off on putting on the waders til you get close. They are box style blinds that have been brushed in. Depending on the blind you might be able to get away with hip boots (his words, not mine). Hope that helps, if not call the hatchery and talk to him and hell give you all the info you need.My son drew an Oct 3. What should we expect to need gear wise? Are we talking waders, boat, etc?
Hunting outside the blinds is not permitted. Too close quarters for everyone's safety, especially for youth hunters. Congrats on the hunt. I saw the pic on the other thread, looks like someone had a good time!
