Since we stopped shooting mallards we really saw our duck numbers go up. Teal,sprig, and gadwall are amazing. I'm thinking its all the noise the mallards are making at night. Pretty cool stuff.

Since you stopped shooting mallards for a week your duck numbers went up. Chit I haven't shot a mallard in a month and our numbers still suck.

Number of birds- who cares.

Seriously has to be one of the dumbest threads ever and many dumb comments too.. Of course numbers go up because unless you are truly hunting mallards( which requires actual hunting) the other ducks are pretty much available especially the teal in the mornings and the spoons all day.

By the way look at the newest numbers provided by th elatest survey and then figure out why it sucks.....Yeah yeah I know some guys are shooting limits but most guys are only getting a few ducks every trip out and if you arepaying attention there really aren't that many ducks flying around anywhere...


Think the lack of water hasnt effected this number or the large limits allowed in CA??

By going up North across the US border and killing young Mallards ( mostly Hens ) doesn't help our Valley population
much ether ! As we can see , all the efforts of Waterfowl organizations , we donate to , go to hell fast with no water . :hi:

Bitch , moan all you want , until this is stopped , the valley will get worst year by year ! :hammer: :hammer:

I'm not bitching or moaning and GO NORTH young man GO NORTH.... If you can't beat em join em I say....The birds shot up North are not mostly hens not sure where you get that idea from or that notion....

Simply stating facts that water is the key and the lack of water and weather has hurt the hunting....It is not rocket science :huh: :huh: :huh: :huh: :huh: :huh: :huh: :huh: :huh: :huh: :huh: :huh: :huh: :huh: :huh: :huh:

Cmon, people have been hunting Canada forever. That isn't it, by a long shot.

Let me straighten out a few number of the Grasslands winter count.

261k ducks.
161k on the SJNWR

Last year, about 490k ducks
In good years, has been as high as 800k

Goose numbers remained even at 161k

At the beginning of the season, folks thought that less water in the Sac valley would produce better hunting both North and South. It took a while, but the North has been and continues to see that on the public areas. The South, no. Nothing to push the birds down as well as the birds are in the same pattern the weather is......constant with no change.

To get your birds down South, you have to think out of the box, put your time in, and execute on every opportunity. There are hunters that do and they know who they are. Guys up North are seeing way more birds. Speaking public areas here.

As tough of a season that its been, hunters can and should take many learning experiences from this season with them into future seasons.
