Nice hunt! Glad you bagged some ducks for the efforts.
I was out this morning, too. Wild weather, indeed - thought I was going to get blown over and my kayak wanted to wander off on it's own.
There were 2 others set up either side of me this morning. First duck came in right after LST - BOOM BOOM BOOM to my left. Flap flap flap well out in front of me (at least 100 yds) and then it curved back in. BOOM BOOM to my right. Off flies the only duck of the early flight.
Once the skies cleared a couple hours later (there were at least 5 double rainbows over the morning as they cleared - kinda cool) the others had left, and I decided no more ducks would be flying. So, I thought I'd honk once or twice on the goose call (it was about "goose time"). Mother Nature said, "Oh no, you don't know me," and in flies a GWT - clearly drawn to my goose call (oh boy). Boom and the skunk was off the deck. 45' later, bright sun and I am SURE nothing is gonna move, when in flies a hooded merg. Boom/splash.
2 ducks in range, 3 ducks seen all day - and no other waterfowl. Not one. Weird after this weekend with what seemed like a lot of new birds...
Totally worth it, though, even if I had gotten skunked. I loved the way that weather sucked!
