On Tues. Oct.10 on a suspision that it might be the right time I took 90 Ringbill and Bluebill decoys with me to a small lake north of Green Bay, I only took 6 mallard and 2 goose dekes. At first lite I had birds working, The first flock had to have over 50 redheads they buzzed the dekes and a quick call had them acting like they hit an invisable wall they couldnt wait to swing into the decoys. moments later my Lab was bringing back the second redhead and getting everything wet. Then I heard the familar jet engine sound this time a flock of about 20 ringbills came in 2 decided to stay much to the delite of that big black dog. I limited out by 8:00am I saw and Im not kidding at least 1000 birds in just a couple of hours Ive been to Canada several time and I had to tell myself I was still in Wi. Dont know how long they will stay but Ill be after them Fri.

I haven't seen any brant, but I heard from a friend that a few brant have shown up on Long Island. You'd think that there should also be a few here in between somewhere.

If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

St. Lawrence SeaWay Divers

Postby captainduckhead » Thu Nov 16, 2006 3:27 pm

I hunt almost daily on the St. Lawrence. I've seen droves of divers mostly broadbills, but buffies, and whistlers are flying well too. I've evn managed to knock a few down. The Brant are in good numbers right now too, so if 870 is reading this...you should be sitting on a rock pile somewhere near the main shipping channel. Good luck and don't shoot the decoys!
