Calls of specks filled the air last night at my house. I'll know more about the migration in the next two weeks. We typically have our largest concentration of specks by the third week in october.

Lots of woodies in the swamp, just checked. Maybe NC will have a good year as long as those ducks get over the mountains. I can picture TNAL sitting on a mountain top in East TN shooting ducks eye level and traversing down slopes to pick them up. :lol3:

That's against the law nowdays I thought. All guides have to be Canadian.

Yeah I saw at least several hundred out on one of our lakes. My lady and I shot 3 last year with buffs the size of tennis balls. They are almost finished now :hammer:

Still a lot of blue wings in North Dakota. Its been a warm fall so birds have been migrating slowly. A warm fall and then a big snow storm in Canada and the upper midwest gives you a G P

It was awesome! I remember that season well, limits every hunt except 1 and that was because someone miscounted birds and we were one short.



That was the year I introduced my Bro N Law to duck hunting, been down hill ever since :lol3:

We limited out every hunt it seemed, black ducks, pintail and mallards
