Well did anybody slay them the first day? I am going tomorrow evening but we just do a lot of bird watching and not much shooting. I am more of a duck hunter. :thumbsup:

Just two! :pissed: But one was about 15lbs. or more!
Only a few groups of birds flying and the ones that did come in was sweet! 2 dozen decoys was all we used with large landing area and it worked pretty good for the geese that were there. I have seen more birds flying in the past few weeks and now i can thank the putz who shoots a mile high, (when my decoys are getting worked not his 3 dekes) for scarring what geese were there. Thank you Sir Sky Buster!

We had a lot of close calls but the birds didn't want anything to do with us. We saw a ton of ducks though!!!

The west side of the state. This spot is good for about twenty minutes opener and then there are a million hunters that blast at them. My buddy hunts there so I don't want to give away the exact location. There were a lot of ducks flying around the few fields we hunted as well.

thats cool, that spot sounds like where i go on the east side. The place is called Pointe Moullie there are about 600 hunters and when that first trigger pulls it sounds like WW2. Its crazy, well good luck to yeah :getdown:
