One of the most overlooked aspect of being successful while waterfowl hunting is scouting. We have always put a huge importance in doing your pre hunt homework by spending time glassing and driving. The time waterfowl hunters put into the hunt before it even happens typically has a direct correlation to how well the hunt ends up.
This week on “The X” on Realtree.com and their YouTube channel, we take a look at some scouting tips to help you be successful as well as take you through an afternoon of how we scout waterfowl. We had found a good concentration of ducks spending a lot of their time with flocks of snow geese. Through 2 days of scouting, we came up with a plan to be able to hunt these ducks without having to deal with the thousands of snows. Be sure to tune back in next week to see how all of our scouting worked out.
