Got a draw there next week and wanted to know if there were any birds there yet.

Didn't hunt the lake but was close to it sat, lots of swans but not a ton of other ducks yet.
Yeah I'm a curmudgeon and I like it that way. Don't tell me how to do something I already know how to do. Don't ask me for help if you already think you know how to do everything. If you want my opinion just sit back and I'll share.

Although we're a good bit south of there, they're not in Brunswick Co yet.

Monday was my first time ever hunting Hyde county. My hunting partner and I were with a guide just off the lake. Our morning hunt was a little slow due to thick fog but we still took a mixed bag of 3 teal, a drake & hen pintail, 1 ringneck & 1 woodie. The afternoon hunt was looking slow too until the rain set in around 4 ish and then the birds began to move. We wound up with 11 birds total. It was right at 5:20pm when a pair of mallards, the first ones we had decoy all day, locked up on our spread. Turns out that the drake and hen both had bands! After legal time the birds were really flying, it was amazing. The darker it got the more birds came in. We sat there on the bank of the impoundment and watched until we couldn't see them anymore. Sweet.

It's sweet to sit at an impoundmant after shooting hours. The first time I hunted an impoundment it was near Mattamuskeet, and we watched what looked to be over 40,000 birds go in to roost.
