Warm weather mallards

Postby porochi » Wed Jan 25, 2006 10:14 pm

Friend and I took off from work after lunch today (Jan. 25). Figured we'd rather spend the afternoon in a blind than in the office. Didn't expect much, it was warm, sunny, no wind. Hell, there were bugs flying around. In January. This is crazy weather. It felt like a wet september dove hunt. But we bagged our first mallard at 2:30 and ended the day with 5 mallards. Could've got a few more if we'd been better shots. There were a lot of ducks flying, more than I expected given the conditions. We saw several hundred, no lie. Seemed late season shy but managed to work a few into range. We were in Linn County.

Dude don't tell people crap about where you hunt. Way to many internet scouting goes on.

Man, I've been driving around Linn County all day trying to find the flying bugs... :help:

KS, I have to agree, and have said as much to a couple of you in PMs; don't divulge too much info on your spots. But simply stating the County you are having success in is, IMO, part of what this is about. Sharing how we are doing in general, sharing our stories, and our successes, is probably safe at the County level!

Considering that I was hunting on my grandpa's farm what the hell difference does it make to you that I posted I saw ducks in Linn Co? Or, maybe I wasn't in Linn Co. at all. Give it a rest, and direct your advice to KDWP and their Online Waterfowl Reports. Talk about trying to plug a leaking dike with your finger...

Whoa there Porochie,

I think most of these guys are just trying to help keep you from making a common mistake. I have seen the affects of this interent thingy and it can kill a good spot real quick. Even on private... (yours might be a little different)

Don't take it personal just keep it general...

One example was Hillsdale this year. One day KDWP posted a large number of ducks that where passing through, by Friday they had not updated it and over 50 boats where hunting 10 ducks on Saturday morning... No one took the time to drive out there and scout it themselves. I did enjoy laughing at those suckers because they would have know the ducks left on Thursday. Just keep in general, we love to hear good stories. Trust me, I have met several of these guys and they are all good people who are only trying to help...
