so i was talkin to a duck hunter from alaska the other day, and we got into the subject of when ducks start side-slippin into your deeks (i personally think that there is nothin better to see when im in the blind), but he said that they dont do that up there? pretty sure im not crazy, i've seen them do it, just wondering if anyone else out there has seen this awesome show?

I have had both geese and ducks "willow leaf" into spreds. Sometimes birds use a spiral descent and other times the want to get down quick and the will slip in.
