  • Sept 27-28 weekend success

    How did every body do this weekend, did anybody notice more geese around, more mallards. Just checking, a little colder up north and to the west, this is usually the beginning of the migration through here, just wondering if its been noticed. We did get three nice mallards or friday, heads turning green, I'm hoping they are the start of northern ducks coming into our area. Bud

    Noticed allot of teal still around. Jumped around 200 back on some shallow water.
    Yesterday appeared to be a great day. Today we didn't see many birds at all. Did notice some larger flocks of widgeon but only saw about 10 mallards. Probably one of the slowest days I have see in years on the marsh.

    Only means and it can get better in the coming weeks.

      Teal is pretty much all I got today I don't know why the teal loved me today but all other ducks stayed cleared. Going out tomorrow and Tuesday still.

        Had a great day in my part of the marsh. Shot a limit of mallards. 4 drakes and 4 hens. Best part of it all was my 6 1/2 old pup handled very well and brought all the ducks back. He's showing great promise. I have the makings of a duck dog on my hands boys!!!

        happy hunting!

                Baron, you and others have a unfair advantage of being able to fly over to Buluga any time you pick up your gun. I envy that advantage. Happy shooting. Bud

                        Did fantastic on saturday shooting a 2 man limit in just over 3 hours. Went back on sunday expecting some more birds and had the slowest day I think I've ever had. It was brutal. Hopefully this week is better.

                          Skim ice. Nothing solid that I've seen. Seen ducks swimming around in it.

                            Went out this morning just sheet ice nothing crazy walked a little further out into the swamp and the ice got a little thicker. Nothing that a stroll around before you set up won't solve.

                              with the temps like they are up north. The marshes should be locking up soon up there. New birds should arrive any day.
