dekehead glad to have you with us :salude:
As some of you may know from an other post we hunted the swamps on the opener. Between the three of us we shot 12 opening day. My son and I shot 5 more the next day. All the guys were saying that they did bad, I mean real bad out on the river like 2 or 4 birds for the whole group. Every body was saying the same thing “ there’s just no birds”
Personally I thought the birds are here, but there is so much water everywhere that there just not on the river the way they want them to be. Their in the swamps, back waters and flooded fields.
So today at work I saw the wind kept building. I knew the birds would be uneasy in the woods with all that wind. When I got home I said to the boy “Get your gear we’re going hunting” I knew the ducks would want to roost away from what was going on in the back waters and the noise of the woods.
We weren’t there 10 min and the ducks started to come in from all directions, my hunch was right the ducks came out to the river. It didn’t take to long before the boy and I had are limits. The weather was perfect, it was NASTY just the way we like it.
