I went out yesterday. I did some local scouting and saw nothing. So I shot up to KillDeer for the drawing and guess what??? They closed a week early! Totally ticked me off after 1 1/2 hour drive. Nothing I wanted to see at 5 AM in the morning. Needless to say I went to plan B. Went to a marsh that I have never been to before. The water levels were good and I picked the best spot I could pick out in the dark. The long and short of it is I saw about 50 wood ducks take off over my head, 7 swans, 2 flocks flocks of geese, many numbers of coots and grebes. I did positively ID 1 small group of teal. They never came close enough for a shot. I used some bino's. Guys in the marsh next to me got 2 BWT and 2 GWT.
Very little shooting overall. I heard that there were birds there last week but the cold snap pushed them out.
All-in-all it was great to be out. I may, by some miracle, get out one more time before it's over.
