Fellas, who cares if it is 80 if the birds are still here. Last thurs. and Fri. we killed 24 one day and 20 the next (4 people in 1 blind). Almost all mallards and grays. Shorts, short sleeves, and greenheads....you have got to love it!!!

Had you been killing mallards before the warm up? If so, recent studies have found that they don't move around near as much as most people think. When we get this stagnant, warm weather they will find a little backwater area or flooded field and more or less stay put until the weather changes. Then they will get up and move around. So a lot of the time, the "new ducks" have actually been there all along. I guess the moral of the story is to go scout them out during the middle of the day. If you jump a bunch of ducks, then get out of there and let them settle down. Be back early the next morning and set up well before daylight. Try to be quiet and use as little light as possible in case the birds are roosted in the area around you. Then wait them out. The only problem that you may run into is that the birds will be on some private land etc and you never find them.

I can vouch for ldiful1 I was with him when we killed them 24 birds let me tell ya it was an awsome hunt with awsome people. Plus an awsome dog like he has is a good thing too.
