Well...???

What happened today with the weather? I'm curious because I couldn't get out today due to some prior arrangements. Hope you guys did well!

Got out on the lake today and were able to shoot a few with a couple of my buddies. Ended up with 8. It was definitely nice after spending 2 days at the club and only shooting 2 birds...

Hunted off 162 by 99. Saw some enormous groups of ducks they were feeding a little to the north. Shot the only six birds that came in....mallards and widgeon. Lots of guys out today not much shooting for perfect duck weather

Shot Wickman Rd. 1 sprig, I cant believe, we saw 2 huge pods of ducks that have been sitting south east of us for a month, still there, but NO flight in our area at all, lifted my call twice, left at 9:45. Some of our youngsters are still there ZERO. Drove 162, to Aquas Frias to Nelson, south on Z to Afton into Biggs, Saw a few birds in certain areas, but NONE flying

Looks like were DOOMED

Two birds out of an assigned pond at Sutter. Best duck weather all season and nothing to show for it!

slow in the rice. I shot a limit on a clear calm day, then a "duck day" rolls in and the birds left

2 birds @ Salt Slough. Lots of variety working, I shot like crap and should have gone home with 4 birds.
