Don't think you'll see real great numbers until the 5th of January

As long as you bring them I don't care.

They follow jr around


As long as curt doesn't show up you should be fine.

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.

I see more ducks than that most years.

I see swarms of ducks like this many years.

How long do y'all think those birds will be brave enough to keep letting a truck drive by in range?

As long as you don't start hunting them there, all season long. If anything they will get more secure that they are in a safe refuge.

If it is not, they will learn that pretty quick :yes:
