Not sure how i missed this, but have hunted Weldon Valley many times. Always seems to be some ducks thee no matter when I have been. I have had some great days there before. you will also get some geese in there from time to time as well. Good dove hunting too.
FYI... word to the wise ...Get there early and set up in a good spot as the boys sure like to get there early! This year there has been some teal there everytime I was out dove hunting, along with some gadwalls and shovelers./spoonbills.
There can be too much of a good thing with antler rattling.
I like to hit the horns together for a good 30- to 40-second rattling sequence and then hang them up and resist the urge to hit them again.
This works to the hunter's advantage, because if a buck has heard it, he may have been 300 or 400 yards away and he comes in and he's not exactly sure where it came from.
When finally is time to rattle again throw a slight change-up into the routine.
The second time, don't rattle as loud...
