Duck hunting from the bank and retrieving ducks in deep waterPosted by The Last Coco on 11/19/12 at 2:42 pm
Ok - here is the situation:
A substantial bayou runs through a WMA I usually bowhunt. On Saturday, ducks were piling into it with reckless abandon presumably due to pressure from surrounding waters. It is faily difficult to access by boat (closest launch is 7 miles away - 2 miles down bayou to another bayou then 5 miles up that bayou).
Here is the dilemma: I can hunt from the banks of the bayou and probably kill a fair number of ducks, but I don't have a boat or a dog to retrieve ducks with. Anyone have some suggestions?

Ive done this with a rod and reel. all you have to do is get the line over the duck. Where I did it, it was a bayou only 30 ft wide so it was easy to get them. Much wider and you would have to be a hell of a shot with the line.
