Got a couple teal.

Hunted Salmon creek and mostly watched some teens sky bust anything within 80 yards :mad: :thumbsdown:

Planned to talk to them once they put a shot across my bow, thankfully they didn't rain any steel my direction, but they may have chipped some paint on a couple cars on Egan :no:

Some other guys out at the channel on Salmon Creek limited out by 10am though :hammer:

Doing some work on my hunting setup and waiting for the crowds to die down a bit.

Used to be a great spot but it became too popular with the kids. I'm workin off the dike. A little more work but at least you wont get corked.

We hunted Salmon Creek a lot early season last year with great success - The key is just getting out there on a day when theres no one else... Theres really not too much space there so even one other hunter there can ruin your chance of reward.

From what my buddy has been telling me he is doing well on the flatts.

I was walking in downtown Sitka the other day while off-duty and saw a huge flight of Widgeon...and all I could do was cringe....Man I cant wait to get back and get out....

I prefer going in on the dike trail as well. I've been working on a trailer to get my Marsh Rat in on the dike, but I wasn't ready for the distance yet.

I've not seen any yet, but that's not saying much. I sure have seen a ton of teal though. Took the dog out on Sunday for a swim and was able to knock down a blue wing teal. Haven't shot one in about 4 years :smile:

I need work to slow down so I can finish my set up for this year and actually put in some time on the flats. :no:

Blue wing? Hmmm thats the second one I've heard of this year. You get yours off the dike trail to?

I was just off the Sunny Point parking lot with the observation deck. I'd hoped I could make it out to one of the islands but the tide was too high. We just hunkered down in some of the taller grass and waited for some unsuspecting teal. We weren't out there very long.

Back on geese for a sec... has anyone seen ever much of a migration? I'm originally from NW Oregon, so I have many years in the NW Goose Permit Zone and identifying the 7 sub-species that move up and down the Pacific coast. I've never seen anything but Vancouver’s. Just wondered if there's even a small group of Cacklers, Tavs or Westerns that pass through?

Give it a month or so and the northern birds start moving through, about as soon as the ice sticks up north.

We get quite a few wintering here aswell, although a lot of the birds miss Juneau altogether, following the coast down through Sitka instead of comming inland.

That makes sense. Last year I talked to a Biologist with the Feds and he said the birds that winter on the flats are Vancouver's that are spread among the islands durning the rest of the year. I hadn't seen anything but the locals in the three years I've been here, but I also haven't been out to the surrounding areas like Admiralty Cove and other places.
