Ashby area waterfowl

12 posts in this topic

I'm heading up to Ashby this weekend for the pheasant opener and to do a little duck hunting in the mornings. Usually we have done really well in this area later in the season.

does anyone have any reports on how they did last weekend on the ducks?

Didn't talk to anyone but for all the shooting I heard on Sunday Morning, somebody did well. Complete opposite from Saturday, heard very little shooting. Lots of corn left in the fields, roosters could be tough.

Decent for us. Mostly teal, but had mallard, woodies, ringbill, butterball and gadwall. Saw redheads and of course cans. No geese, but saw an average amount. We had a good opener - not limits but a good variety and plenty of shooting. Good luck! Do you stay at Ashby Resort, or with frineds? If the resort tell Mike and Diane hi from Box's smile

Watch for Cans -- Christina has a bunch sitting out there so I'm guessing they'll get kicked around a bit this weekend. Good luck fellas - we've been hunting there for 25+ years and this is about as many birds as we've ever gotten for the opener. Normally its better as the season goes on.

Opener was good to us but yesterday was dead. Nothing flying to speak of. No early diver flocks or mid-morning flights. Almost no shooting, maybe with more pressure on the weekend they will move.

This is the weekend for pressure, everybody with a dog will be out chasing Roosters. With a bit of paitence every slough will have someone walking around it putting up ducks, why, in search of the wily Rooster. Ducks should be moving all day. I know of several bow hunters who will sit all weekend because of the pheasant hunters moving deer. The nice thing about it, is I'm on days off, no work until Monday night, time to work on camp meat, duck soup and pheasant parmesean. Good luck to all and be safe and kind to your fellow hunters.

One thing I noticed on christina is that the weeds are gone this year. alst year the weeds were thick all the way out and i mean thick. This year 30 yards out and they stop. I think that could harm the ducks out there for feeding becuase thats why they come is to feed on those underwater weeds. I know we had a poor opening weekend out there it was bad.

    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.
