He wasn't as bad as he looks. Despite being well within striking distance I couldn't coach him into showing us that smile that gives him his namesake.

There is just something that bothers me about an animal 1/20th my size that can kill me.

Understandable. He was pretty cold today and just looking for a little sunshine. The ones you don't see are the ones that kill.

i guess this makes sense.. i saw my first coots of the year today.. still have blue wings.. did not see any of the green wings i heard about.. widgeon are decent.. mallards and grays are adding to the numbers every day.. i probably should turn the pump back on to accomidate the numbers, but, i'm not going to.. i was hoping to catch and condition birds transitioning to and from the lake and refuges, but they are just staying put there.. every time i bump em, they go to the refuge for a little bit, then come right back...

I've seen a surprising number of mallards almost every morning I've hunted this year.

Surprisingly freaking low.

When there is a slow start like this year, they often just skip right over us. I'm getting very nervous. One more week, and we might lock up and where I hunt, that will probably be all she wrote for ducks for me.

I love the pictures. I only see birds like that a few times a year on average and have never seen ducks like that in season.
