anybody having any luck duck hunting assawoman or indian river. or in southern delaware seem to not be able to find the birds around here. hardly see any but when i do either not shooting time or past shooting time and all the ducks you do see flying during shooting time have there suitcases packed knowing where there already going. my buddy did shoot a blue wing teal few days ago first one i have ever held.

set out for ducks today and got the skunk on them, but a flock of canadas lit into our spot unexpectidly at 20yds. between two of us we were able to drop 3 out of the 5 that came in.

yea tell me about it ed m every year gets worse and worse you see the birds but they know where to go to be protected and where there being fed really dont feel like making a hour half drive to go kill birds when there here. buddy of mine limited out up there to middletown area on his ducks and geese.

Things should change today with the snow storm that has hit our area. Unfortunately I have to work day shift today and tomorrow, but I will try my luck on Monday on the IR River.

went to a blind on Indian river this am, as usual decent number of mallards at the launch, and a ton of divers in at the mouth of the river.
not many big ducks flying.we didnt even get to shoot our guns, did watch the buffle head swim around for a while though

yesterday, we saw ducks (mallards, blacks, gadwalls, and teal) but they didn't want to come into us. we could of shot a 2 man limit of buffies over the decoys, but never shot them. Only saw 1 big diver (golden Eye drake)
