Local member FurFishGame is right. There isn't much going on over here this time of year. That doesn't mean the waterfowl aren't busy though. I saw a mama mallard with about ten ducklings cross the road in front of me yesterday. There is a family of wigeons in my favorite gravel pit, as well as a pair of horned grebes with their young. I also walked up on my first pair of harlequin ducks while king fishing on the Susitna a couple of weeks ago. Even as they molt, the harlequin is easily recognizable - and I had never seen one before! I will probably end up going hunting for something big this fall - maybe a sheep or caribou - but it's the ducks that get me antsy for the season to open. Only problem is that I still have duck in the freezer from last season. Time to fire up the grill!
