OPENER!!

We had an awesome opener. Ended up with our limit of 24 total. All woodies and teal equally distributed. We did see quite a few pintail, but they would not commit to anyone on the marsh. They just swooped in and out. Probably only saw a hand full of mallards. All happened in about two hours and then slowed way down. Everyone left the marsh by 8 or 9!!! I think that is why it slowed down so much.

Anyone make it out on Sunday? I was still recovering from Saturday night and seen rain forcasted so I slept in, haha. Just wanted to know if people did as good on Sunday as they did on Saturday or even today!

Sunday was trash for us. Saw a few woodies and teal but appeared educated.

Opener was slloooowww for us. I think we ended up with two woodies for both Saturday and Sunday.

For the north zone opening goose, we dropped 4 of our 12 bird limit and rocked a few others that kept on flying. Not the best shooting on our end, we should have been near 8 or so dead, but it was the first trip out for goose of the year. I didn't go out on Sunday.

Anyone else have luck for goose?

We had a slow early opener (September) but did very well sunday. I shot my first banded duck sunday, actually I shot my first two banded ducks. Saw exclusively woodies, and only woodies. We had our four man limit in one hour
