I hunted in the afternoon(Sequoyah NWR), very slow at first, as usual someone stole our main spot, so plan B. Well, of course some stole our backup spot, which is usually dry, but it had water. So, we went to a good-looking spot in the middle of a slough(lots of empty hulls). 1 duck came by but it was out of range. Then people get bored and start leaving( stupid Arkies). Finally they left our preferred spot. So we picked up the decoys and moved there. After 30 min. a mallard drake glided perfectly into the decoys. Easy shot. It was also banded! It's been 5 years since I've shot a banded duck. We ended up with 2 mal. drakes, 1 hen, 1 teal drake. It was a pretty good hunt considering the amount of birds on the lake. The blind was also a wreck/mudhole, I think the lake level rose quite a bit last week. But, the good thing is, crappie and sand bass fishing in the spring are good to look forward to.
