    I've been hunting 4-legged creatures for more than half my life, and have decided to give the birds a try.
    What advice do you have for a newbie? As you can guess, the greatest challenge I'm facing right now is the "where" to go.

    Welcome to the Refuge! Check out the NC sub-forum here at the Refuge and maybe some of the guys there can help point you to some spots to try.

    The nice thing about hunting birds is they are lighter to carry out, and you can go again tomorrow even if you are successful today!

    On the hoke Scotland county border there is some swamp/marsh area in that is game land that wood have some duck and there are also some impoundments around your area but a permit is needed I don’t know how to tell you to obtain one but I’m sure of you call the wildlife office for your area they will be able to tell you
