Hold the press boys!!!
You should have been here around sun down, hearing what I heard. In my side yard I have a pond it’s roughly 100x 50, at the west end there is a dam that divides it from another pond or flooded hardwoods that leads back ½ mile behind me. There was a pair of Mallards in the front pond and a lone hen in the back pond; well did they start a calling contest. The funny thing was all they used was the lone hen call and did the birds come dropping in. Forget all the fancy feeding, hail and comeback calls. They sure impressed me!!!!! :thumbsup:

Oh yeah 870,

Well I am grilling goose rolls and drinking imported Yuengling from the east coast in 75 degree weather. Beat that.

Don't know if I should be digging up an old thread, but I saw a bunch of broadbill today. I was glad to see them. A couple of weeks ago in the same spot there was a bunch of redheads, ringnecks, and cans, but only a few bills.

Speaking of Broadbills, Sat morning after coffee I drove towards the Lake looking for Broadie’s. Where do I find them, thick enough to walk on in a whole 300x50ft. What’s strange is, the river just 300 yards down from them was wide open. :huh:

Earlier today I had 4 Snow’s fly right over the house in range
:mad:

Took the boat out and saw thousands of divers on ******** this past Saturday. Ringnecks, Whistlers, BuffleHead, Blue-Bills, and I think an Old Squaw, but it was pretty far away and flying, so I'm not sure.

Yesterday, in a flooded cornfield a couple miles from home I saw a bunch of ringnecks, pintail, and wigeon. The drake pintails looked great! I don't see birds like that in the fall.
