This weather is great! Makes me ready to shoot some ducks. I have to make time to do some scouting where I hunt and see if there is any water.

Cephous, I am with you, I have not found the time to make it out myself. I need to be scouting my normal goose field to see if they have started coming in yet.

Tell me about the ground being dry. My wife's dog passed away yesterday and I had to dig the grave. The durn red clay was dry and hard as a brick bat. If it had not been for the pick ax, a shovel would not have gotten the job done.
The main hole I hunt is pumped also, unless mother nature comes along and fills it up first.
This is wild though. Think about it. Last year, every little wagon rut in 250 mile radius was holding water from all the rain, this year, it is the 180 degrees different. Last year, all the water affected us. We did have a lot of ducks, it is just that they were all spread out all over the place. So it could be a good thing.

I would like to be able to wade where I hunt for a change. Has been several years since I could do that and it narrows the ducks down when the water is out of it.

I spent the weekend out at Wildrose Kennels here in Oxford. Discussed this very topic of water with numerous hunters that were there. All seemed to be in accordance with the fact that with the lack of water providing greater concentration of ducks.
