Hunting 30 Yards off I-40 on Lake Conway

Discussion in 'Waterfowl Hunting' started by FroMan, Dec 16, 2012.

  1. I drove through Conway a little bit ago and saw about 4 spinners and a nice spread right next to the Interstate. I was wondering if you boys killed any birds right there? Thought the semi-trucks and traffic might flare the birds off of ya if the spinners didn't...:fit:

    That's a pretty high-visibility and high-traffic (at least vehicle traffic) spot. Did you get checked by Mr. Green Jeans?

    :fit:

    Six of us shot 8 limits in a couple hours.....we did pretty good. Mr Green Jeans was busy searching for the people hunting the rest area at Grassy Lake....some unknown caller called in
     

  3. It really cracked me up. But then I thought...dang, that might actually work. What duck would expect hunters to be set up right there? :biggrin:

    Don't you have to be so far from a road?
     
  5. Pretty sure it's 50 feet. These guys were legal as far as distance from the road...but to see a spread that close to the interstate was entertaining.

    I've hunted spots like that a couple of times. Suprisingly we've always done pretty good. The only thing I can complain about is the constant drone of vehicles. Gives ya a headache after awhile.

    I like to hunt just off the north side of the 430 bridge - park on the shoulder and walk in usually get in a couple ov volleys on woodys and an occaisional gadwall

    It's a lot further than 50 feet off an interstate.

    I saw the dekes, Nice spread! I'm not to sure how legal but to each his own I guess. Don't worry about those pesky regulations, Think of them more as suggestions.

    Gonna be just like the ramp at Dagmar last year or BM.

    Just to save everyone a trip, NO, there is no water at Lake Conway......

    The roar of the traffic tends to drown out my hideous calling. I've been doing it for years.

    The rule is 100 feet from center line. That would be 33.333333 yards :biggrin:

    one of our fields is adjacent to I40 and we hunt about 100 yards from it, shoot the mess out of them. The roar of diesels hitting the rumble strips gets annoying.

    You kill 'em where you can, glamorous or not, or at least that's my philosophy.

    I'll be on a duckweed infested farm pond that's less than 30 yards from a chicken house in the morning before work....Killed a limit there the other morning before my cup of coffee had time to get cold. A limit is a limit is a limit. :up:
