Overall ended up hunting 8 out of the last 10 days of the season. Hunted four days, the 16th thru 19th, with my Dad (75 yrs. old) and a good buddy I grew up with during the wicked cold temps. The hunting was awesome! Almost 3 man limits all four days with a mixed bag. Out of all of the ducks shot there were only 4 hens shot, 1 pintail and 3 mallards, the balance were mallard drakes and pintail drakes. They decoyed up awesome! I should say that there was also a fair amount of missing that took place and we had multiple boat issues with the cold temps. Also hunted the 22nd thru the 25th with my Dad and another buddy. Not quite as good but the temps. certainly made it more pleasant. Still ended up shooting our fair share each day. We ended the season with a Green Head decoyed up on our spread, feet down and wings cupped! Can't wait till next year! I have 8 plus months to get the boat and motor back into tip top shape (as if that ever happens). The cold temps. caused some wear and tear on certain components.
Good Luck to All and have a safe year until next October!
