My opinion? I tried it and gave it up. It's just not worth it, if you ask me...

East of I-95 they have crazy, badly written, confusing, blind laws. West of I-95 is wide open with no blind laws.

The free ranging ducks and geese just aren't around in numbers like they used to be. Most of the resident waterfowl stays here, and they are so educated, that they know where to go where it's illegal to hunt.

Good luck...

Default There are alot of waterfowl here in Va

We hunt all over Frederick County just this last Saturday we went out and had 16 ducks and 9 geese on the ground before 7:30 . They are here you just need to do some scouting the Shenandoah river is full of waterfowl .Winter wheat feilds and cut corn feilds are magnets around here. Duck hunting is alot of work and timely but the rewards are awesome. Yeah we shoot afew of residents so far this year we have shot alot of Scoots I shot a Merganser this weekend we also got 6 Ringnecks and a Canvasback . Where do you live ? And dont give up get some decoys and 2 good calls and get out there.

I live in Martinsville. I've talked to duck hunters around here. They say they do alotta driving to find them. I've seen them at Smith Mtn Lake, and I'm going to start to scout around some coves alot more. As for Henry county I have not put in any time looking for spots. Nothing like another addictive habit........
