Funny story of the weekend was in a blind where about 40 teal buzzed the blind. Hunters shoot and drop four ducks. Two spoonies and two teal. In a flock of 40 teal they pick out two spoonies. Now that's when you know you are having a bad day shooting.

Oh that's just how their day was going. We limited out earlier and had spent about an hour at the boat shed consuming a cerveza or two when they called for a ride home. I went out to get them and their hunting had been tough. Each time I talked to them all I heard was, "birds just dont want to decoy, and they keep flaring off the blind", but regardless they had enough and were ready to call it a hunt. So, about 10 miuntes later I pull up to the back of the blind in the marsh about the same time 20 teal are landing in the decoys in the front. They throw a couple shells in and drop about 3. I start laughing about how I can see the birds not wanting to decoy. About that time, 6 pintails are sitting down in the decoys right in front of the blind, guns come flying out of the cases, and a single shot gets one drake. Now keep in mind, I am in a wide open boat behind the blind in the wide azz open, standing up and pointing. At this point they need just another two to finish the limit, so I ask them if they want me to go take care of something at the other blind and give them some time, to which they agree. I leave them, and not a single duck comes close to the blind. They call me to come get them AGAIN, so sure enough I pull back up to the blind, and sure enough about the time the last gun makes it into the case, here comes another group of pintails, about 12 sitting down right on top of the blind. I'm yelling and pointing almost wanting to scare them off, and they get the guns back out, load the shells, and drop two more drakes. They got their limit, and I got a hell of a good laugh.I guess that day I just smelled like a duck.

Noe thats just plain CRAZY!!! But it never fails when you decide to stop the hunt this kind of thing happens.

Sounds like they shot the Chamber of Commerce's 'Y'all come back." birds. Will probably be a fine.

Yeah I kept telling them to let them land, but they weren't listening. All days long they stayed ducked down in that pit blind and the best shooting they had all day was with everyone standing up, and me in a white T-shirt standing up in the boat drinking a beer.

Gonna be in the 20's in Arkansas 5 of the next 7 days. That should bode well for the boot state.

Word is that there are a good many new ducks in the marsh, but with all this wind, you better hope they don't fall downwind cause the dog can't catch up.

We didn't see an exceptional flight in the freshwater edge of the marsh this morning. 'Least not my part of it. My guess being most birds were in the ag stuff to take advantage of the rains. Hoped to see some teal, but they were AWOL, too, and there were just two, both bluewings, in my blind's limits. Expect to see more big ducks with tomorrow's blue skies.

But Lord knows I don't have them figured out...

Only teal at my marsh blind this mornings were a few bluewings. But, then, there were no mosquitoes, either.
