Been tellin' my Corps' buddies who work in the water control section to hold onto ALL the water....forget about generating electricity. Would be nice to have some water (and vegetation) around this season for a change.
Though the last two seasons in OK were "below average" because of our drought, even with two consecutive record duck number years..........................the poor conditions did seem to thin out the fair weather hunters making it a little better out there for some of us who hunt public.
There's 2-3 pairs of ducks, one pair of mallard, one pair of ringneck, and maybe something else, that have been nesting near my pond this spring. Usually there will be nothing, or maybe one pair of mallard.
Yeah...I don't get overly excited/put a lot of emphasis on the surveys. If the conditions aren't right here when the season rolls around those numbers are meaningless.
DW, what are you doing on here in April? Usually you remain dormant until dove season approaches.
