There was a slight breeze and it was overcast, so I was already imagining ducks flying into my spread. BUT, that was not the case. Hardly any birds flying, and the few I did see did not respond to calls and were not drawn into the spreads at all. Only had two buzz the decoys and we were able to drop those two. Other than that, no ducks at all. Called it quits at 10:30 and headed home.
Anyone else experience call shy ducks this early in the season? Maybe my calling just sucks really badly haha.

Thanks for the clarification. Yes, I will definitely work on my ID skills. I've done nothing but pour over duck ID today...again, my sincerest apologies to everyone.
