I've only hunted one weekend day this season, certainly is nice to be retired and hunt weekdays. Bud

We're froze up solid out here in Bethel, and we haven't seen a bird in 5 days. The green heads we did have last week were bright and well colored. But they're gone now. Oh well, I'll be hunting sea ducks with Buck down in Seldovia the first week of December. CANNOT WAIT!

Bud, this time of year I have a lot of free time. All the dogs are out hunting. .....
During the summer I don't get a chance to go fishing cause I'm up to my eyeballs with retrievers. Though I'd rather duck hunt than fish. Haha


The photo is from the Kustatan. I flew down there early this morning.

Those looking to fly in on floats. Bad news for you. All large fresh water ponds are 50% covered. Everything small and shallow is froze. I walked across stuff today that I normally would be up to my shin in muck. As the morning went along and the wind started picking up the ice did soften. Don't know if things will completely thaw. It may if it rains pretty steadily. Snowing in Kenai right now.

Has anyone had any luck with lucky duck wake maker magnets? I got some to help keep the ice from forming again at cottonwood on Sunday but not to sure about them.

Killer day on the marsh. Most ducks I've see flying except opening morning.

Had a another great weekend on the marsh. Duckhunter1 got a great Can and scored on a three curl green head, and one of the guys we hunt with got a band. Nothing better than two days on the marsh with good people and my son.

Didnt see a ton of puddle ducks but there is till some hunting to do. Wondering if most of the birds bailed out early. Seems I was still up to my eyeballs in birds this time last year.

Maybe this warm weather front has them still hanging up and yet to move down yet. Guess we'll see.
