Well, I guess I will be the first to post. I must say....WOW, at around 7am came the first shot and it sounded like a war zone. It was amazing to hear and see all the ducks flying around. All the ducks I saw today were mostly small ducks. Lots of teal, I imagine wood ducks, lots of mixed divers, and yes COOTS! I have never seen so many coots in my life. Everywhere you turned, there they were, I mean thousands of them ugly birds. As far as shooting, actually didn't get to shoot as much as I had hoped. I did end up getting 1 BWT and 2 ringnecks. Two other guys only hit 2 coots. Oh yeah, they aren't living that one down. Only saw maybe a handful of mallards and actually quite a few shovelers, but no big ducks really. Several hundred flocks of smaller ducks moving throughout the entire area. It was fun, but not too fun as most of the ducks were very hard to work with and wouldn't give us the time of day. Maybe they didn't like something they saw, I just think with all of the shooting going on, they were going to be spooked anyways?
I can't even venture to guess how many people were out there. I know the area we were in, I would venture to say at least around 20 boats, but yet out in the middle, we were not bothered or really had anyone too close to us. Not sure about the other pools, but our pool, everyone seemed to make sure they kept their distance from one another. Sorry, I never did snap off any pics, as my heart was just going seeing all of the movement. Truely a sight to see. Hope everyone else that went had a great, safe time and I hope to they tell us how they did.
