nice goin. 20 plus flocks, geez that's a ton of ducks on the move. last fri, sept 29th I hunted for the first time this year. I got to the blind probably 1/2 hr too late or I would have probably had a limit but it was good to get 4 ducks for the dog. only fired 5 shots all day but managed to shoot straight with 3 widgeon and a teal. I had a flock of widgeon mixed in with teal of about 200 in that bunch. it was the biggest flock I had ever have come into me in my entire life. gun jammed after the 2nd shot.

Question: When one lives in the wintering grounds of Calif, like I did for 47 yrs, you would see ducks in the sky moving and all that but up here, I don't see that. You guys who hunt above anchorage and them places; do you have to wait sometimes all day to get 5 ducks? Every time I have hunted, I haven't seen strings of birds high. Maybe I just don't hunt enough because it's kind of hard to sit out there and not see a duck for more than an hour. If it's cold enough I don't mind getting a few shots every hour or so.

Living here in ak for 2 yrs now, I guess I just need to time it right and be out there when they are coming through because I've noticed geese here but they only stick around for a day or two and then they are gone. same with the ducks, unless they are someplace else. They could be anywhere in swamp alaska.
