New Push

Had a draw hunt this weekend in eastern. Limited out with Gadwall, wigeon, teal and a swan. One teal had a band from PA.
Lot of gadwall and wigeon. But while scouting saw hundreds of bills and some redheads, then barely any came back the next morning. Kind of weird. Hope everyone else had a good one! Lot of new birds

had a similar experience with same types of ducks plus shovlers. Scouted Sunday in Pamlico sound and did not see nearly as many divers as I saw the last week of the 2nd split. Maybe they went to the security of Pamlico county's shores.

I am expecting this weekend to be really slow. lot of light at night and really warm during the day. think I will go fishing.

is anyone seeing Pintails in any quantity?

Tons of birds around now. Most I have seen in about 10 years around these parts. Moon has got them messed up this week and making hunting hard though. Swamps are slam full of mallards/teal and some other puddle ducks mixed in and there are 10's of thousands of bills and reds rafted up out in the middle of the sound.
