Yesterday was pretty horrible. Hunted a new location just off of a river in an old oxbow. Nothing doing at legal time. Had a big group of woodies fly in at around 8 which I missed because I was asleep in the leaves. Had a pair come in around 820. Downed a drake. He flipped upside down. I marked him. I looked down to reload and he was gone. Went to check out another spot and I saw a decent marsh lizard floating around in the lake. He was pushing 8'.
Today, slept in. Got to my spot at 530. Downed a pair at around 645 then I had 6 more come in around 745. Picked out another drake. Picked up and went home.
I only heard one other group open up one time on Saturday. I heard a few single shots this morning, but not much going on. Couldn't believe the lack of shooting! I'm sure low water has limited boat access, but it was still a surprise.
I'm planning on giving it a go tomorrow morning. I pry should let the spot rest, but this will be my last opportunity to shoot before the break.
Looking at the "other" forum, it sounded like feast or famine. Don't know what the deal is. We had a decent "cold" snap, but the lack of water is a killer. It is rumored that only 55 birds were killed at Butler. Glad I wasn't drawn this year.
