    Default October Duck Hunting

    Once again I have another question. How is the duck hunting around the Palmer Hayflats in Mid October?

    it all depends on the weather, once we get a hard freeze, majority of ducks leave for warmer climes. can be good until they leave, just depends on the weather, however, when it is best, there are very few hunters out. Bud

    As long as there is some open water the birds will be in the hayflats even after the majority of the water is frozen. Had successful hunts thru the third week of October last season.

    Perfect I know I am planning on going some during that time but was just wondering how it typically is. Hopefully it will cooperate and there will be open water still.

    Wear shin guards to save yourself bruises from busting ice if you walk in.

    And bring something to smack some holes in front of where your hunting. Ducks need a nice wet place to hang out.
    Makin fur fins and feathers fly.
