6am high tide, very light breeze, light rain, 6:36am legal.
Jumped a few ducks and geese paddling in. We ended the day with a hen black duck and a hen hoodie. Both circled and committed to our set/calling.
Brought my buddy who moved up from VA to Scarsdale. He was very entertained with Ffld County waterfowl hunting! Quite a difference compared to the huge lease on the Pamunkey Indian Res he has in VA.
I quickly pointed out that it is better than no hunting! Not as many birds around as 2 weeks ago. I still think the migration hasn't really kicked in with this recent warm spell. Quite a few shots heard all around.
Anyone else get out?

i am seeing huge numbers of mallards...all on fresh water, all spread out in groups of 2 to 30. the ponds are all open , it is warm, people are still feeding the ducks in their back yard ponds...there is little reason for the puddlers to head to the shore yet.
although I did hunt the salt thursday and saw a group of at least 50 puddlers in two or three spots. I suspect they are mostly mallards that live on the shore year round mixed in with some migrant black ducks.
