More Ducks Than Usual?

Postby jhend08 » Mon Sep 05, 2011 10:24 pm

While we dove hunted this weekend I counted over 100 ducks in dirt tanks around the ranch we were hunting on. Usually this time of year we might have 10 -15 hanging around so I thought this was kind of odd. Even saw 2 pintail just sun basking on the edge of one of the tanks. Maybe its just me but it seems like there are a lot more ducks hanging around than usual.

With La NiƱa in place, the precip., is heading north and filling up the pot holes. The numbers are very good for waterfowl in general. Looks very promising.

The duck forcast for this year across the country is off the charts!

I counted 48 ducks today that flew over while we were dove hunting. We usually only see about 10 or 15 in this area during duck season. Looks like it's gonna be an awesome year.
