A first for me...

Postby NCSUDucker » Wed Dec 25, 2013 9:22 am

Had a buddy hit me up with, "We've got mallards feeding in a field!" Monday evening. Now I've shot many out of a field in NoDak but definitely a first for here.

Had quite a few birds before legal. One nice group right at legal where I forgot to switch the camera on, but all in all made for a fun hunt. Especially considering the lack of birds on the local lakes.

Ended the morning with 8 mallards. Should have probably had dozen or so, had one group that we pulled a one more pass on, but that's life.

We were able to hide four layouts very well down in the bottom.

The take...

Anyway, thought I would share. Hope you all had a Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year!

No secrets here, private property off of Stokes Ferry headed towards Gold Hill probably 2 miles or maybe a touch more as the crow flies to the lake.

C'mon if you can get access to some of these ponds around here they are holding birds, otherwise the lake, not so much. Couldn't be 6 days of hunting from before legal to well after.
