    Anyone know where you can duck hunt around Naples? I've always hunted with my Uncle in the Ft. Pierce area or on Okeechobee, but I have my own shotgun now and want to start hunting in my own area.

    There are some ducks in estero bay. But you better check with fwc before you go. There are some areas that are preserves and areas within city limits.

    Your best bet is on the Calusahatchee. Upstream of the 75 bridge there are some good areas. Port Charlotte has some real good hunting.

    Put time on the water and you'll find them.

    I didn't take it that way. I gave you some general areas the you can hunt and will need to spend time finding them. The move around, they don't just stay at the north side of the third island from the ramp.

    Z, there's so many people living on or near the Caloosahatchee, that they'll call FWC if they hear the thumpin. Plus boaters are unpredictable there.

    You have limited but good options near Naples. I will PM the info to you.
