Duck Hunting Tips

Date & FromHunting Tips
On passing shots, when birds are moving from left to right, or right to left, use an aiming technique that allows you to see the target. Swing your shot gun muzzle through the target from behind, and swing it slightly below the bird so you can see the target all the way through the shot. …and dont stop the swing when you pull the trigger, or you will likely shoot behind the bird.
When hunting over ponds for ducks, you need to consider three factors for choosing your location: wind direction, size of water, and cover. Obviously ducks will land into the wind and the combination of wind direction and water size should determine your location. If the pond or slough is too large to shoot across, position your self on the leading edge of the water so that all ducks have to fly over you, into the wind, to get to the water. If you can shoot across the water, choose to have the water in front of you with the wind at your back. Lastly, find some cover or bring some cover to conceal yourself. If you are on the front edge you need to either be completely covered or you need to blend in completely. If you are on the back edge of the water, you need to make sure you do not have silhouette above the horizon.
If you are a greenhead fanatic, save your shells for October when their heads turn that beautiful emerald color. Go and shoot pintails and canvasbacks and gadwalls until the Mallardd green up.
With high water levels expected this fall, ducks will have numerous bodies of water to go to. To improve your hunting parties chance for success, split up your group on two neighboring ponds or sloughs and try to catch them bouncing in between. If the ducks get shot off one pond, they will usually look for the next closest body of water.
In late season, ducks will travel in smaller groups. Set up your decoys in smaller groups, 8 to 10 in a group. Set the groups 25 to 50 feet apart. If your are hunting ducks near water, make sure you have some floaters out on the water.
-> Great tip. I have always set my decoys out in a scatter pattern, no matter the season and in the late fall I get a lot of fly bys. I’ll try this approach later this hunting season.

Late season duck hunting is different than early season. Flocks are often smaller and your decoy spread should be set differently. Set your decoys in several smaller groups of 6 to 10 decoys. Place the groups 20 to 30 yards apart.
The first birds to arrive to your early morning decoy spread will be ducks. Get ready for them with duck loads in your shot gun instead of goose loads. Keep your #2 and BBB handy for when the geese come later.
