They were in the bay by the thousands if you could find them this year. Fun bird to hunt and they sure do decoy nicely. I think they were definitely around in the Atlantic flyway in good numbers all around this year, way more than in years past. I shot bluebills in MD, NC, and Florida this year. All of my out of state friends that I hunted with said it had been a really good year for them in those states as well. My friends in PA that diver hunt also did well on the scaup. I would attribute it to good breeding numbers. Gotta run to a meeting, but someone should check on the Fed count of breeding numbers last spring on scaup to see if there was a big increase
does having multiple screen names on a forum and having a conversation with yourself make you an extra special rock star hunter?
