Wateree River Duck Hunting
Midlandsoutdoors.com visited with a few successful duck hunters earlier this week. Willis Trapp and two friends hunted on the Wateree River between Boykin and Horatio. Despite the local gab that no ducks were in the area, this trio managed to bring down a handful of woodies on the frigid morning.
Hiding on the river was no problem. The water is still so high that they simply wedged their johnboat in a cluster of oak trees that are usually not even wet. They set out mallard decoys, but none showed up. Still, this group of hunters were happy with their day's bounty and hopeful that the bitter cold will bring more ducks to hand in the coming days.
