just about everything just cant get them to commit to the spread.

a few mallards, ringers, bluebills, woodies, hoodies, and have heard of reports around the area of widgeon, pintails, gadwalls, redheads, and even a few shovlers and canvasbacks. and have seen a ton of coots as well.

I dont have a boat as well but trying to sell my baycraft flats boat to buy a mud rig. I wish we had em in numbers but I have scounted counless days and have found 1 good spot but only had 1 ok hunt there when I shot my first hen gray duck. WE saw over 75 mallards & gray ducks but nothing but that 1 would commit. I bet where your at its alot better than here. I have walked 5 campground, the whole edge from 1 end all the way around back to that end looking for ducks & geese. I bet it was a minimum 8 miles per campground and barely found anything on all but 1. Im still after my first greenhead and I have been bustin my tail tryin to get him. I see them around when Im driving out of there but there of course in coves where theres a ton of docks and a bridge right there. This morning about killed me what we had to do but I did it in hopes of that first greenhead bur only saw 2 spoon bills and not in range.

I am out on Lake Lanier trying to shoot my first one. I have come close many of times. First day had a pair decoy & all i got was a cpton of feathers (butt shot) cause he was cupping away from me high in the ir. I was disappointed because im mounting the first drake & hen of every type of duck i shoot.
