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

That is straight aka long cut. You can see where it starts to say long cut. Only kids chew the flavored crap.
