We saw a ton of birds this morning. They had only one place on their mind. Our rest pond. Looks like they're going to hunker down for this front.

I will be waiting for the weaklings in the morning, one state away.

I have friends, be it friends that aren't inviting me, are knocking the snot out of the mallards. All field hunting, all our water is locked up. But we still have lots of birds up here.

Last weekend the fields I hunt were holding about 300 Mallards. Tonight I saw 3-4 times that. Lots of Blacks mixed in as well. Didn't see any Blacks last weekend. Only green. Hopefully this weekends pics will have some diversity. I'll try to get some decent pics of the flocks on the wing tomorrow. Tough to do with my little camera. (

ice you can walk on makes picking up dead ones and chasing crips easy... unless they dive and swim under it.. then just let em drown and bust em out later.. the only down side is our ice is turning red..

i love the cold.. started seeing the first push of mallards.. (since before season opened).. they started moving in late morning today.. we were almost done when they showed, so they just filled the hole up.. still got the same old birds too.. saw several specks moving in too..


how would you rate the season so far byers?

It's been ok. We didn't get off to that same start that we did last year, but I don't recall being in a blind past 8 am until Christmas last year.

I don't know where the ducks go when they leave here, but they are officially on their way there.

About 600 ducks and probably 500 geese were missing this morning. The 400 hundred or so that flew over this morning found less open water than they were hoping, then turned south and headed for the horizon.

Aparently the season was over yesterday, wish someone had told me before I spent the morning breaking ice every 15 minutes. What was only 1/4 inch yesterday was 3-4 inches today so I only broke a small hole that the 12* air closed back up almost instantly.

Good luck down south.

Breaking ice is not something we do. I'd rather land them on the ice than try to convince them that broken ice is natural. Looks like the highs this week are going to thaw us back out. Here's to hoping so. :beer:

I've ice fished before, though I don't recall catching much. I have worn the crappie out while standing in 14" of snow before.

We are locked up here. Luckily it appears like it will thaw before we have to get back out there.
