Simply didn't shoot too much as I didn't want to be shooting spoonies. Cottonwood Creek WDU, in the far distance, sounded like WW III as usual. Can't translate what that means as opener day sometimes means lots of cormorants are shot there (and plenty were flying Saturday).
I was dismayed at the number of hunters in my general vicinity as "my" spot doesn't get hardly any pressure. Pretty sure nobody else around me killed anything as they were all set up in spots that veterans wouldn't consider hunting. Area is pretty much void of any real cover this year. Gotta use a layout blind and do some creative covering to hide well. Oh well, I'm hoping the newbies "see how bad this spot is" for duckin and don't return.
Gonna hit one of my "regular" spots this weekend and see how infested it is with newbies. I am very afraid.
Ole Cottonwood... Lotta Cormorants.... Lotta idiots....
