My spot south of Anchorage is by no mean a honey hole, but it seems this year the number of birds is far below normal. I average throughout the season about a 4 bird average. Limits somedays...zero on others.....a few here & there. I'm just not seeing the usual numbers in the area. Today I dropped 1 of 2 widgeon and then saw nothing (close or far) for the next two+ hours until a flight of 4 far in the distance. Ten minutes later a spoonie committed suicide over the decoys and that was it until I left at 10am.
What are you seeing in your area compared to years past? I think the late spring adersely affected local duck production.
