...I was able to get a proper limit on Monday 9/10. It certainly wasn't gangbusters but I limited by 11am. Seven mallards and one pintail. It was a nice day for a solo hunt though a bit crisp in the early hours with the clear weather. I tried to use a jerk string for the first time and was pleased with the results. I got a few birds to commit without even using the call. I attached my swan deeks to the jerk string for maximum visiblity and confidence and it worked to great result. I shot a triple of mallards and gave the dog some good retrieving work. The dog had to race the resident eagle that is attuned to the sound of my Benelli, but the good guys won and I went home with a full strap and a tuckered pup. I'd try to add some pics but the birds arent that colorful this time of year.
