The River Has No Mercy

January 8, 2019

The Mississippi River can be a deer hunter's dream, but it can also be his nightmare. Right now at Cottonmouth we're experiencing a high river that is steadily on the rise. We've had to completely change our tactics this week. We're boating in areas that we could ride Polaris Rangers in just a few days prior. We're having to pull stands and blinds out of areas that are going to go completely under water. We're even duck hunting in waist high water where food plots used to be, and we're managing to still get on some good bucks amongst all the craziness. It all comes into hunting a long side this crazy powerful river!
