Two Things Ducks Don't Want Duck Hunters to Know

Know how to use these two simple tactics to increase your success in the field.

Scouting

Due to the time constraints, the act of scouting is often the tactic set aside early in the duck hunting process. However, knowing the way the environment a duck call homes changes constantly, it really is critical. Quite simply, a duck requires three things to live and grow: sleep, food, and cover. If you happen upon a spot with all of them you likely found a never ending honey hole. Most of the time it is harder to nail down than that, but the point to remember is that we must always have these requirements in mind while scouting. Since hunting in a spot excludes it from being a resting spot (can you imagine a spot being restful if it was full of gun shots?), we should be focusing on a food source that the ducks like. So it really comes down to finding ducks tipped up feeding and mudhens for finding that ideal spot.

Concealment

So now you have found a high quality place to hunt. It is out of the way enough to be somewhat restful. It has a food source that the ducks are utilizing. At this point it is critical that to remain hidden when the ducks pass by. As any duck hunter worth his salt can attest, all waterfowl have great eyes that can ferret out even a reasonably concealed hunter in a short period of time. To combat that, whenever possible use vegetation from the surrounding environment to blend in. This will allow you to look like a natural part of the surrounding environment. So try to hide as good as possible, and remember that movement is usually the one thing that ducks notice first while flying. Another excellent idea is that nature's great concealer is shadows. Whenever possible try to utilize shadows as much as possible. Shadows are great for keeping your spot hidden from passing ducks, even when they are passing overhead.

Utilizing these 2 duck hunting secrets is proven over and over again to put more ducks in your boat. Try to make sure you use both next time you are duck hunting and see what effect it has. It may take more work, but it is that little added work that distances the top duck hunters from the pack. If you get really good at scouting and concealment, you will become the hunter that is the talk of your circle of friends. That will lead to better success out on the water and perhaps even open up the doors for some more invitations from acquaintances.
