Is it me? Or.......

Is it just me or do the shooting hours seem later this year? ID'd 6 drake Mallards @ well over 100yds today, 15 minutes before hours. They ended up landing in the dekes along with a couple of Woodies. Could have nailed the Woodies with my oars. Naturally they flew off 5 mins. early. All birds flew out before hours and hadn't returned by 11:00. And yes my clocks were set right, for a couple of late arrivals they appearantly weren't :laughing: :laughing: :laughing: . Lost a 1/4 tank of gas out of my truck at the access while out :pissed: :pissed: :pissed: :pissed: :pissed: :pissed: Must have seen a couple thousand Seagulls heading South.

I agree 100%. I can barely identify the birds at shooting hours in the morning. In the evening, i'm picking up the dekes before prime time even arrives.I wish their was something we could do about this Waterfowlin injustice. :pissed:

BTW ,,I'm new to the site. I just found it. Looks like a keeper. I'll pass it on to a few of my buds. :thumbsup:

I hate having birds dumping in while you are picking up the decoys. I am putting the boat back on the trailer when it is still somewhat light. That is irritating.

I've got a 15 minute walk home with the Dawg, and I can still see daylight when I get home. :pissed:
