Hi everyone,
This my first year of duck hunting , but I'm already addicted. I hunted the Susquehanna river in Pa. last Saturday and had a great time. I blew a lot of holes in the sky, but did manage to take 2 male mergansers and a male gadwall. FUN !!!! Can't wait for late goose season.

Scopalamine, its alot of fun. I used a doz. mallard dekes and just set up in some brush along an eddy on the river. No fancy calling. Just some quacks. Mergs seem to gravitate to decoys with very minimal calling. Good decoy setup and good concealment seems to trump aggressive calling in my short experience. Lotsa luck and bring a lot of ammo :thumbsup:
