Don’t Let Icy Conditions Stop Your Waterfowl Hunt with These Tips

Decoy placement in icy conditions for continued waterfowling action.

The water is starting to ice over where I duck hunt, and post-Thanksgiving will likely bring in more colder northern weather. Too many of us stop hunting when the rivers, tanks and lakes freeze over; but you don’t have to let these icy conditions stop you.

Have a look at these tips from Ducks Unlimited to keep some open water and how to place decoys to keep the birds coming in.

There it is, some great tips from the experts at DU. Don’t put away those dekes yet, find some shallow water, break yourself open a hole and get some birds coming into that spread.

Do you have any tips you swear by when heading out for a winter waterfowl hunt? Photos? We’d love to see! Comment on our Facebook!
