I have been lurking on this site for some time, finally decided to join so I could contribute. My main reason of joining is the Canada section, as I am planning a trip in 2018 for the fall. My main interests are in snow/speck field hunting and a field Mallard hunt. We will be going around the 2nd week of Oct, although my time is not set, we can go and stay as long as we want. From all the research I have done ( COUNTLESS HOURS) it appears that in all hunting, timing is everything, just as it is here in Oregon. A couple of questions.....Never being there, is there "specific" geographic areas that you can hunt the above mentioned species, or is it just a crap shoot? And field decoys for Mallards, is a large spread required? Hopefully I'm not going against etiquette, as I am new. Thank you for any information. I have included some photos of what we do in Oregon.
