Good Push Coming Through

Postby MoHunter » Wed Nov 15, 2006 11:45 pm

This cold front has pushed quite a few ducks down. My honey hole is holding a few thousand right now. Gonna be nuts this weekend.

Took 3 gadwall and 3 teal at EB yesterday. Lots of birds flying.

Missed my first ever triple on a group of gadwall. Somehow I missed on the first shot and then dropped two with the next two. Guess they were to close the first shot. :yes: :yes:

I'm SHOCKED we didnt' get that 1-3 inches our fantastic metoroligists were calling for last night. :laughing:

I had a reservation at EB last Wed(70 deg, south wind, bb skies, educated birds). Pulled #15, got stuck with left overs. Our group of 4 still took 8 birds and worked almost 100, exciting hunting.

Fast forward one week, my buddy had reservation this morning and after last week, boy were we pumped, with this front coming through and north winds.....drew pill #15 again. Killed 2 GWT early, then never worked a single bird. They'd take a look at a distance and never look again.

I never would have thought this morning would have been worse than last week but it wasn't even close. I guess you just never know.

What kind of ducks are you seeing? I would kind of like to shoot something besides gads for a change. I haven't many mallards or woodies for awhile. The teal have pushed out here too.

Last week was 3.

Today was 11 south.
Only one hole of water to hunt (that's what happens when you get a late pick and don't know the area so well) so our spread probably looked just like the spread that's been there every morning since the open.

We called to some distant birds and they wouldn't work one bit so we pulled up at 9:30 and headed to work.

yeah...i noticed from your pics you were stacking up on the gads. as of last night, my honey hole was holding about 3000 mallets, the rest were a mixed bag of mostly woodies and teal, but some pinnies. I'd say there was at least 4000 birds. Lot of GWT around. Who knows what they're goin to do with the weather changing like it is.

I'll probably pick up some woodies and mallards then. I'm only about 50 miles SE of KC. Woodies seem to really like to stop by my area. The bean fields next door to me just got harvested. They should have a few mallards stop by them.
