    For a 1st post, you might not want to ask for someone's hunting spots.
    Welcome to the fudge.

    Might as well come over to Alabama and blow your duck call as loud as you can all morning like the rest of y’all do on a primary diver hunting lake. Lol no really you have some good areas on the head of Weiss lake I used to hunt a lot of farm land around Rome Ga. where my parents live and would do pretty well. You just gonna have to get out there and figure the backwater swamps out.

    Well not sure what area you are from but I hunt with Tim Burkhalter Floyd co sheriff and his family owns land on Weiss in Al. He also has a huge farm that he has permission to hunt on the edge of the coosa west of Rome. If I was gonna hunt over there I know theirs some back water from Weiss that’s in Ga I would try to get in there you just have to hunt out of boat because it’s owned by southern co. They consider it trespassing when you are out of boat with a gun now you can put decoys out and retrieve birds no problem just don’t get caught with boat touching bottom or hunting outside of boat. I my self would hunt Weiss I grew up hunting there along the Ga border and have kill all different kind of ducks a lot of teal and two bands from that lake so far would love to get back up there and hunt and my advice to you about guntersville lake is don’t hunt the bank I have around 8 dozen diver decoys and I make a raft on the hump out there.

    Sure I used to have access to about 200 acres of private land until one of the owners sons got pissed cause I was killing more birds than him and his buddy’s so it’s a no-go now but theirs some public land that holds plenty of birds up that way
