Unfortunately our golf course is in city limits. Back when I lived in Nev we were allowed to kill ducks/geese on the golf course there but they had to put it up for vote w the B.O.D. We almost got shot down till they realized that the amount of goose crap they would have to playing in would b reduced for the little amount of noise we would b makn. Was kinda fun walkn hole to hole & shootn birds didn't last but a month but 6 guys limited everyday & then they were staying well over a 100 yards from people.that turned into a yearly commitment w the country club that is until I moved up here

Lots of wigeon in up in NW Wash. We limit 6 guys out by 8:50 and it was flock after flock still coming in. Pretty cool sight.
Cut Um!
Real ducks don't have a competition sequence they follow! Hint, hint!

That's part of our problem the birds are still up north. Granted they hang out up there & here yearround but I'm sure your seeing more#'s than usual for this time of year.
