Live in Ohio right under Lake Erie and duck hunting is probably the best hunting I've ever experienced...Favorite duck is mallard ofcourse. Like most hunting it involves time, effort and the right gear. But once you get the hang of how to call and the right spread its all a matter of if the ducks are flying...A good wind and overcast is ideal, Ive come to find out the crappier the weather the better...I hunt mostly marsh land(find it a little more of a challenge and better atmosphere than field hunting) but thats my preference...not to say one is better than the other. Guess it just depends on how much work you want to put in. Never have I felt so much worth as when I do when getting up at 3:30AM, preparing everything, strapping on 3 dozen decoys and heading out into the bitter cold to end up heading home with a limit. Definitely recommend giving it a try. Been hooked since I started. Good luck!
