Just found out I was drawn for a waterfowl hunt at Richland Creek WMA on November 11-13. Never hunted there. How's the hunting there? Worth a 4 hour drive?

Good hunts.

There's a lot of water, you'll need to go down a day or two early and scout it before.

They assign a compartment for your party which is one or two of the wetland cells usually. You get to scout, place your blind, etc. after the orientation. Then that is your area for the duration of the hunt. Since the number of hunters are limited and not over running each other like a typical open public hunting area, most assigned areas should be good if you do your part right.

Worth a 4 hr drive? I'm not sure of that but as mentioned they have an amazing area there. You will have an assigned number and then groups get to pick in order of predetermined number. Scouting prior helps but picking early helps too. They have cells that are levied and then drained and flooded. The good part of the draw hunt is you don't have the overcrowding but you are stuck to a very high pressured area on the second day.

Dang, guess we didn't get drawn this year . Good luck. I've hunted there many times. If they have water you will have a good hunt. Coach

Great area. Used to hunt it when it first opened and used to have it to ourselves. Killed a lot of greenheads there in the early years.
