We are planning our first duck hunting trip to your state. We have an opportunity to stay at a friends house in the Ashley area. Is there good duck hunting this far south or should we be looking further to the north? Is this area mostly pot hole hunting or can we find some good field hunting also? We are planning on going the 3rd weekend in October. Is this too late or would a week earlier be better. I've been surfing through the forum and found a lot of good info for a newbie like me, but the more info I have the better. Thanks for any info.
