Duck Hunting Illinois

August 15, 2018- Illinois Duck Hunting Report- Duck numbers continue to look good as our Illinois duck season nears closer. We’ve had great precipitation this year keeping our local reservoirs and waterfowl management areas looking optimal for the upcoming season. Thousands of ducks will be migrating along the Mississippi Flyway in just a few short months as we complete our decoy, blind and pit preparation in hopes for another great season at our duck hunting outfitter.

Duck Hunting Outfitter

Our duck hunts are on 300 acres of flooded corn, bean, and millet fields. Pits are heated and in the middle of our flooded fields. The habitat has been managed for ducks for over 20 years. Our professional guides will transport you straight to the pit for each hunt. They will also be doing all the calling and even fix you a hot breakfast right in the blind!A great day Duck Hunting in Illinois

Duck Migration

Every fall, ducks fly South to winter. Along the way, ducks will utilize the Mississippi and Illinois river flyways to feed on aquatic vegetation and leftover grain from agriculture fields to aid their long journey Southward. One will often see an influx of ducks right before and the days following major cold fronts. When open water begins to freeze, ducks will be pushed further Southward in search of food.
