Hit a 300+ acre public lake that was wall to wall skybusters last weekend, had it to ourselves. Can't believe they've given up so soon but am not about to complain. Saw more birds than expected, some were definetly non-local Mallards. Had plenty of birds in range/dekes before hours but couldn't get them close after hours started. Wind stopped at dawn and the dekes looked like dekes, lake was like glass and I left the motion stuff at home
. Did have a solo drake Redhead skirt the outside of the rig a few times, usually never see them this early, if at all. And naturally we could have busted a bunch of honkers, swear they know the regs. Very few shots heard at all today.
First it rained, then it blew, then it frizz, then it snew --- from an oldtimers gunning boat ~~ He understood what it's about!
