Duck Hunting Mississippi River and Missouri Corn Fields!!
Duck Hunting the Mississippi was not the best hunting this time so they are now in Missouri in a corn field go figure how things can change.
If at first you don’t succeed try another spot. Good thing you have other spots. Friends and family come into play which is good.
The Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge offers prime opportunities for high-quality public waterfowling. The refuge stretches 261 river miles , approximately 240,000 acres, and of that 190,000 acres are open to the public in accordance with the state’s sesonal waterfowl hunting regulations.
The refuge is a major stopover for many of the different kinds of ducks, geese and other waterfowl on their way south to their wintering grounds. The peak number can reach as high as 750,000 birds.
There are closed areas and sanctuaries to provide safe feeding and resting places for the birds. So knowing where those are is of vital importance. We have a huge area in and round our town that is kept for the waterfowl to rest. We are in a fly way for geese, ducks and swans. Every year thousands come through in the spring and fall.
So there is no shortage you just have to know where to find them and get access. So scouting the area is still an important thing to do and having people you can contact helps lots.
