Use Specialized Tactics for These Swift, Tasty Birds
If you hunt east of the Mississippi River, wood ducks have probably played a big role in your waterfowling career.
They might be the everyman’s duck, common on sloughs, creeks, backwaters, flowages, lakes, marshes, rivers and ponds throughout the North, East, Midwest and South. Heck, many of the wood ducks in the Pacific Flyway and Deep South are year-round residents that never migrate. So, most folks who have purchased a duck stamp and picked up a shotgun have experienced the enjoyment and excitement of wood ducks.
But although woodies are seemingly ubiquitous, hunters must use specialized tactics and a somewhat different mindset to take them consistently. Here, in no particular order, is a list of dos and don’ts to enjoy wood ducks more this fall.
