Ended the year on a nice note by hunting this spot with a friend. Have not been there all year, a lot of oyster shells wash up from storm. Anyway some other hunters got up earlier and were in the area I like to hunt so I moved over to the cove front facing south. Worked out fine, as my buddy made a nice shot on a bluebill and I missed on one that blew in and out before I was ready. Surprising few blacks around. Best part of the day was watching and hearing all the bills flying. Some flocks had to be in the 1000 plus range, just awesome to watch them fly high. A few low stragglers would have been nice also but we had some chances. I lost my duck retriever, AKA fishing pole with a blue fish plug ( im allergic to dogs), so if by chance someone hunts the area Tuesday comes across a fishing pole, please contact me. Nice way to end the year.
