I drove across the flats on my way to work this morning and saw all kinds of ducks flying like crazy away from the marsh. Literally flying for their lives...
These birds of the year have no idea what's going on.
I can't wait until this weekend so I can get out after them.
Has anyone seen any movers coming in yet? I've only seen a couple small flocks but I assume they were locals out for flying lessons.
Went out this afternoon with the intention of hunting this evening. Hunted for 45 minutes and called it early because I forgot bug dope - just not worth it with the black gnats. Shot one mallard. I'll call it is a success because the pup retrieved the bird flawlessly after being out of the game for 2.5 years. View attachment 80505
