Hey Pete, I agree with you. It just doesn't seem the same without all the duck reports. I don't get what the big deal is with everyone not wanting to give out any details on their hunts. There's 100's of thousands of acres of public land to hunt so there's room for everyone. Unless you are rich, you don't have the free time and gas money to drive all over land and sea to find ducks. If you're like me, you work two jobs and you're lucky to pull 1 or 2 free days to hunt/scout per month and for my money I'll spend that time behind my shotgun. If you've put a ton of time and money into scouting well I can't fault you for being tight-lipped, but if you just went hunting and had a good day (or a bad one) tell us about it. An open line of communication can only serve to better unify our hunting community. Just my two cents.
As for a report, me and my buddy got out yesterday for my first time since the early opener. We hunted Supawna Meadows and ended with 4 snows, 2 black ducks and one GWT. The fog was miserable all morning; could hardly see 40 yards at times. Once the fog started to move out around 11, the ducks started moving a bit. Unfortunately, we had to move on out of there too because of the tide leaving us. Saw very few teal up there, mostly blacks and snows. We did work one flock of pintails but they weren't cooperating. (I've still never gotten a fully plumed drake, you could say its my unicorn
) well guys, I hope everyone is on the mend after Sandy, let's keep the reports coming and keep the spirits high!
