Follow the migration with Fowled Reality as we film duck hunting videos all across the Mississippi and Central Flyways. We spend hours of scouting time for each hunt. Most of our duck hunting videos are shot on private land where we knock on doors and do our homework to gain access. It’s not always easy putting the pieces of the puzzle together, but it’s very rewarding to have it all comes together.

Planting Food Plots for Ducks: Fowled Reality is Featured by The Management Advantage

Balancing Food Plots for Ducks and Family Time

Food plots for ducks are vital to ducks health during the migration.  The weather and available food from what you plant play a huge role in the success or failure of your season. Waterfowl management is something we are new to here at Fowled Reality. Being predominantly freelance hunters doesn’t lend many opportunities to manipulate the land in a way beneficial for ducks. Farmers are often reluctant to let you hunt on their ground, let alone build a levee or disk up a portion of their field for moist soil habitat.

Waterfowl Food Plot Seed

This year, we have been lucky enough to have been given the opportunity to do so. The landowner has allowed us to clear out an un-farmed portion of a waterway. We’ve planted Golden Millet in it from 5 Oaks Wildlife Services and the rains have came. The Golden Millet is now headed out and in just a few shorts weeks it will be dropping seeds into our water hole.  By that time, all we will need is cold weather to send the birds south and the hard work will hopefully pay off.

Food Plots for DucksAll of this “hard work” planting food plots for ducks has taken days. They say nothing in life worthwhile is ever easy. This new duck hole definitely hasn’t been easy. From a record setting drought to 14 inches of rain in a couple months, our ability to adapt, manage, and keep our sanity has been tested. Luckily, we have managed to fight through the trials and tribulations, but we’ve been faced with spur of the moment hour drives to the Golden Millet hole, networking to obtain a generator/pump to avoid spending hundreds of dollars, and time away from our families. The time away has been the hardest pill to swallow because all of this work has taken place during the off-season. This is a time when we are supposed to be home getting the “honey-do” lists complete. The waterfowl season is a 4 month pedal to the floor grind that we travel 1000’s of miles of every weekend to fill our desire of chasing ducks and geese. It is a struggle to keep the balance between our love for waterfowl hunting and our obligations as husbands, boyfriends, and fathers. So how do we do it?

We are lucky to be a part of The Management Advantage and have been featured on how we as husbands, boyfriends, and fathers balance our families, duck hunting, and planting food plots for ducks. Check out the video and let us know what you think. It’s a fine line between keeping momma happy, raising your children, and still killing ducks, but it’s something most duck hunters manage!

Waterfowl Hunting Video – Fowled Reality EP9 “Cut’Em Boys”

We’re going to end Fowled Reality season 1 with a waterfowl hunting video featuring some of the best kill shots we captured on film this year.  We like showing the story that goes with every waterfowl hunt.  Our hunts are more than just driving to a place and killing ducks and geese.  It takes lots of work to make things come together to harvest a good number while duck hunting or goose hunting and sometimes, even with all the leg work, things still don’t pan out.  After all the work that goes into our waterfowl season, it’s nice to sit back and watch some of what we were able to film.  We know there are a lot of you out there that love watching birds dump in and drop….this waterfowl hunting video is for you!  Our waterfowl hunting videos wouldn’t have been possible without the help our partners, Muddy Dog Outdoors and KES Waterfowlers.  Fowled Reality want’s to thank them for supporting us and working with us to show what goes into a season.  To help you in the 2012/2013 season be sure to check them both out!

 

Stay tuned to the website and our Facebook page for off season videos, new waterfowl hunting news, and to find what shows you can catch the KES Waterfowler crew, Muddy Dog Outdoors crew, and the guys from Fowled Reality.

Waterfowl Hunting Video – Fowled Reality EP4 “The Doldrums”

This waterfowl hunting video showcases the warm weather we had during goose and duck hunting season. At this point in our season we were driving hundreds of miles just to get on a few birds and sometimes all the scouting we did didn’t pan out. We did manage to kill a few ducks at Reelfoot Lake in Tennessee and a few more near our home in the rain, but the Canada Geese just wouldn’t cooperate this year.

Duck Hunting Video – Fowled Reality EP3 “Duck Hunting Grind”

This duck hunting video was shot in early December.  The weather had been warm for much of the first few weeks of the season and the start to December was no different.  The duck hunting had gone down hill, but the forecast called for a stout cold front to roll in Saturday night.  We had plans of heading south to some buddies to hunt.  Saturday was going to be tough duck hunting, but we knew if we stuck it out on Sunday, we would have some awesome hunting.  Watch this duck hunting video as the ducks ride the front south and experience some great duck hunting action in Southern Illinois.
