On a good high tide, it's all mushy...but the grass is solid....the holes are the holes...

I think of the 35 or so mallards I've killed this year, about 8 or 9 have been eclipse drakes. The most I had ever shot in an entire season before was 4 or five (usually on the opener)

here is a teaser pic... took all day to scrach these out.. did not even have to call in reinforcements.. :help:

opener was crazy, but i'm gonna make ya'll wait on the pics. :wink: had to make several calls, and still stopped at 1215..

friday was good too, but nothing like thursday.. had the same number of people available as thursday, but less time restricted.. which was good as most could hunt afternoon.. managed to kill 15 limits friday, but only managad by 5 min..

yesterday was pretty decent, but birds seem to have already picked up on things.. guess i'm gonna start adding decoys soon..

today was slow with very little in the air.. no wind, cloudy and 55 degrees makes for tough weather when you don't have any teal.

here is a pic from sat.. Image

if the cold comes then yes.. we will have ducks barring a lot of rain (i don't see that happening if it stays cold). but depends on exactly where your buddy's place it at.. they may need warm wet weather..

to be honest, we kill ducks best when no one else is doing much at all.. we love ice.. and very little water..

we like 50+ mph winds and sunshine..

i don't know why, but we kill birds in weather that is ideal for timber.. but we love snow. gental cold rain with 5-10 mph wind is good for us too..

i think you said the guys place was close to union city.. he may be somewhere around hop-in or maness swamp.. chances are, expecially later in season, if we are killing, they are not, and vice verca.
