Bad deal for layout hunting

Discussion in 'Waterfowl Hunting' started by JimmyZ, Sep 4, 2005.

  1. I seen the new bag limits in the paper today. Good new, 4 mallards again. Bad news for layout hunters, 2 scaup. Doesn't seem like it would be worth all that work for a limit of 2 bills per man. I know they shoot puddle ducks out there also but mainly bag divers. The limit of red heads are also 2 but I have rarely seen reds in Maumee bay. Two years ago had both redheads and canvasbacks in the spread but have been hunting for 7 years and had'nt seen them before or since.

    I guess we all need to hope for bad weather to push the mallards down in good numbers. I hunt for both and always look forward to the divers coming down cause it makes for some fun shooting.
  2. Die hards will still go out. For most, it is the experience first and then what was taken on the hunt second. I'm not sure that having 1 less 'bill to take would ruin it for those folks.
