Late Season Success?

Postby terenceb » Fri Jan 10, 2014 9:47 am

Hey Guys,

Wanted to check in to see how everyone's late season has been shaping up. I haven't made it out since the end of December (caught a cold, work, and family issues pile up), and was wondering if anyone has experienced recent success. All season, all I experienced was call shy ducks and ducks that wouldn't work into the decoys. Not complaining because I got my first Canvasbacks this year, but it hasn't been as active a season as in years past.

Hope everyone had a good New Years, and good luck as the season comes to a close. Hopefully we can get some rains next year :(

I've already done my last hunt for the year, but it was a good year. Birds were always in the area, just had to move around to find the. Numbers were up and down, pretty much like normal.

Congrats on the successful last hunt! With this drought, I think it will be an early trip to the Sierras to do some trout fishing for me :(

Maybe a few more birds on the west side of Suisun Marsh...... not much of a difference from earlier in the season. Birds get chased from one club to another. Possible weather tomorrow..... will be interesting if it helps.

We picked up these 3 plus a few teal and probably should have had a few more last weekend.
Good luck to everyone with the last few weeks of the season.

Nice! I'd be a happy camper with a mallard and limit of Canvasbacks. Congrats! Given me the itch to try and get out now!
