NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! They are, however, THANKFULLY, moving off the night feeding pattern. We finally started seeing birds today. To put all this into perspective, we have killed, as of this morning, 228 birds during the 15 days of season. Of those 228 birds, EXACTLY SEVEN have been mallards. And No, before someone asks, this is not normal. Typically 40-65% are mallards.
I'm just thankful for the clouds that got the birds to stirring during the daylight hours again. Never thought I'd hear that thought coming from my
lips, but if it hadn't been thick all night, we'd have shot a specklebelly and left pissed again this morning.
I sure am lookin' forward to some red-legs showing up. The birds we have are getting pretty tired of looking at my spreads.
Smell that? Smells like sumthin died in here.
