The river, from what I've heard has been smacking them ever since the cold snap.

Earlier they were smack'n them. In Winfield the Mallards are feeding all night in the private clubs and then flying back to the Batchtown refuge in Illinois to spend the day. If the full moon would go away and some snow melt, Mallard hunting might get better. I and 3 others went out yesterday and managed 3 geese, a ringneck, and a gadwall. We're gonna try to focus on divers or geese until something changes.

Nothing like a full moon and snow covered ground. Sucks.

Although, if you have flooded corn and open water you can seriously lay the smack down.

We tried Shanks on Saturday. Ice is thick, enough that two guys jumping couldn't break through. Saw one stranded boat about 100yds from the ramp, not sure how they were going to get out. We walked on the ice to our spot, which I hate doing because you never know the depth below you. Be careful out there.

Anybody been to the Ozarks or Truman Lake recently?

That sounds exactly like the recipe our club has, and we still can't kill ducks. Open water, corn, and no ducks though. It sucks.

I'm going to hit the riv this weekend I think.

I haven't killed a diver one yet this year, and I've been itchin to.

We went out on the mississippi last week, and didnt kill a single duck lots of highflyers but nothing wanted to work, maybe with the clubs starting to freeze up we might do pretty good.

We put are boat in at cuiver island, then head out towards the main channel. Last time we set up on the upper part of the slough right next to the main channel.

Gotcha :thumbsup:

I hunted Cuivre a little bit last year and it was slow. We shot all the way up where it forks. I hear the channel side is much better though. I think I'll be down in Alton or up in Winfield this weekend.
