The Importance of Weather Forecasting for Flooded Timber Duck Hunting Trips

Do you appreciate and enjoy the tradition and respect duck hunting brings, but most days you lack the time to organize a perfect hunting day? Are you aware that the weather can have an impact on your duck hunting success?

Read on if you are interested in learning more about our guided duck hunting trips in Tennessee and how we plan them.

Experience This Unique Hunting Location in Style

At Reelfoot Lake Duck Hunting Guide, we offer guided duck hunts at our state’s popular Reelfoot Lake. The lake creates a unique, natural cover for us. There we’ll patiently wait for the ducks to arrive.

Since this area is an attractive feeding and roosting habitat for migrating waterfowl, you won’t have to wait long for your prey to make their appearance. November to January are optimal months for flooded duck hunting. We promise you an unmatched adrenaline rush.
Just imagine yourself navigating through the trees, calling, and waiting in anticipation for the ducks!

How Can Weather Affect Your Duck Hunting Success?

As we’ve mentioned, November to January are the best months to go for some prime flooded timber duck hunting. Since the weather has a huge impact on birds’ behavior, you should plan your day according to the forecast.

No one looks forward to the rain like a duck hunter. Gray, rainy clouds are the perfect cover for a waiting hunter. Rain and wind will force ducks to move to protected areas and to feed early and late in the day. This weather causes ducks to fly low so it’s easier to spot and target them.

However, cold weather is a challenge for both hunters and ducks. Ducks will concentrate in areas of open water and feed more often to keep their body temperature high. Navigating through water in freezing conditions won’t be easy for you either. So, just like ducks, look for the open water!

Although fog will limit your visibility, foggy and snowy days are perfect for testing your calls. You’ll be surprised the first time you hear a duck answering your call in the fog.
Too much snow can cause you trouble, though and you should know where ducks go to feed themselves in this situation.

On the other hand, on warm and windless days, your hunting trips may not be as successful. Your shadow will be easier to spot, and ducks can fly, raft, dabble or dive anywhere they please once they notice you.

Keep in mind to always dress appropriately so you can blend into the surroundings and be comfortable.
