i have a camera that will take decent pics at regular distances, but the way i have the water at the moment, its kinda hard to get close enough to the birds.. the teal were not to tough to get close to, but mallards are not as tame as teal..

ehhh.. i like mallards..

i crunched some numbers the other day, and since i have been keeping detailed records, teal make up less than 6% of what we kill... 5.8% to be more percise.. lol.. now that i post that, makes me curious to the exact % of mallards, grays and spoons too.

Nothing is more exciting or challenging that teal. Mallard, teal, and specks make up our top three.

Specks made up over 15% of our harvest last year.

geese are just bonus for us.. but we have really only stated trying to kill em again the last 3 year.. there were 5 years or so we did not put out a goose decoy.. 3 years ago, it was 3.6% 2 years ago, we bumped it up to 5.0%.. last year we pushed it to 7.5%

but that is counting all geese.. 4 years ago, it was 2.3%..

that was a significant jump to 7.5 expecially considering the pit was out of the ground.. have to split credit between decoys and calling.. i think this season will be very telling though..

last year, and 3 years ago were very very similar total numbers wise.. 2 years ago was down a bit with goose numbers being almost the same as 3 years ago.

the more i think, i'm not sure i put out any goose decoys 3 yars ago.. and i only had 2dz 2 years ago..

I rarely run more more than 6 at a pit. Afternoon hunts are different, but we needed to hunt in the afternoon last year.

last year was odd.. not a ton of birds around, but what was here like us... if the pit had been in the ground, it would have been ugly.. small ducks did not care and we had a really good season numbers wise, but our shots were longer, (that cost us a few birds, expecially on windy days) and our mallards were down 16% compared to total birds.
