Duck Hunting 2018 – Decoying Mallards In A Tight Swamp Hole


Whit and I hit a swamp spot of mine on the second day of our late duck hunting season here in Virginia with the hopes of shooting a few birds out of our kayaks. We had to battle tough conditions since high water and a previous freeze had changed the birds patterns from what they were doing earlier in the season. We set up on a small opening in the swamp and come shooting light we had a lot of birds working us and were able to shoot a handful in quick succession. Thinks slowed down rather quickly however since the birds decided they wanted to hangout in the flooded timber instead of the open swamp. We were able to finish of our hunt with one more mallard late in the morning, bringing our bag up to 5 mallards and a wigeon. This was Whit’s first ever wigeon and was the icing on the cake for the hunt.
