Want to hunt up and down Contentnea Creek here's how to Hunt Ducks on Inland Creeks as published in the Carolina Sportsman. Camo up when floating for puddle ducks. The next consideration is how to get from where you put in to where you take out. Hunting in two boats is doable, but it doubles your chances of spooking ducks out of range. Hunting in tandem is also doable, but it reduces your number of shots by half. The good thing is, if someone is willing to drop you off, they don't have to do so before daylight, as mid-day is often the best time to float, after birds have fed and returned to the water to loaf and rest.
Once you've picked a stretch of water, consider 1 mile per hour the average duration of the trip. You can paddle faster, but doing so will cause you to alert ducks before they get within shotgun range. Whether done on land or by water, the principals of stalking are the same. Reduce the amount of distance your quarry may spot you ahead of time by using shoreline cover to your advantage. Hug the bank and any inside curvature in the creek so you can pop up in range when rounding a bend. Camouflage is essential, but only necessary from the front. It is common to float up on ducks that never bat an eye at a woody log moving naturally in the current until it starts shooting at them. When birds flush at long range, don't risk a shot, because if you shoot at them, they probably won't come back. Instead, carry three or four decoys with you, toss them out and wait for 30 minutes to see if they return. If not, resume floating.
December's best bets
WHAT - Wood ducks, teal, mergansers
LAUNCH - Hookerton or Snow Hill are the closest public ramps on Contentnea Creek, but opportunities to dump in exist along stretches of Contentnea Creek, plus the Neuse and Little rivers.
INSIDER TIP - Drift along close to the bank, watching the river margins ahead, and look closely behind downed trees for ducks to pop out at close range.
