Killed my 1st wood duck this year! Hunting in my Uncle's Swamp in Alamance County. Not my dads first but his biggest! I've heard alot of people say...wood ducks dont respond to decoys or calls.... We hunt afew small open areas in about a 20 acre swamp. I only put two to four decoys out... three times the wood ducks landed on my decoys!Normally after a certain time the woodies seem to stop flying as well... My dad shot his first thing in the morning and as time went by...I figured it was about time to wrap things up. But i decided to try something.... I started blowing my cheap ($7.99 at wal-mart) flex tone woodie call....and after calling five times... A beautiful drake woodie flew out of the dark swamp right to my decoys!!! AND BAM!!! GOT EM!!! :) Check us out on FB at Shane Manuel>>> more pics of me and my pup shooter with all our ducks and geese! Alamance County HUNTERS!!!
