Opening day was pretty good, had a lot of ducks flying around in the area, but there were way too many hunters hunkered down in the area as well. Even with all the hunters in the area, we still ended up with a few ducks, 2 brown belly whistlers, three shovelers, two teal and a drake woodie (being mounted). Went out to the same area on Sunday and you could tell the deference, didn't see as many hunters nor ducks. Only ended up with a hen hooded merganser yesterday, so called it quits around 9 A.M. and headed home. From what I seen I don't think the ducks have really moved down, or at least not in the area I was.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in
a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside,
thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming --WOW -- " What a ride!!!
