If it flies it dies, if it just sits there it dies too.

I hope so too. I have a good time anyway even when I don't shoot a lot. But it sure is nicer to get some shooting in when I wake up so damn early and freeze my butt off.

Every pre-season is full of hope for a good year. This year is no different. But I live in reality and from the spring hatches that I've seen it looks to be a down year again for large ducks. Small ducks seem to be holding their own. Geese seem to be stable.

One hope that I wish would happen would be to get a good week of rain the week before the season starts. 12-24 inches would be great. Last few years I've been kept out of my opening week spot because of not enough water. It's a pain to pole the boat within a 100 yards of your spot and not have enough water to get there and no fun walking in the gray muck.

One good thing this year is the season starts later the same time Ohio's season starts. Won't have to worry about the birds hopping across the line to hide. They'll be pushed right back. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I don't care if it ever gets below 50 degrees here, but we need North of us to freeze solid and in mid season. Farmers almanac is calling for a cold winter, so are some forecasts. I hope it holds true. We need that massive lock up to push those resident birds down to us. That sure would help my diver hunting too, these past two seasons have been miserable for divers.

I'll second that Don. Some days it was colder down here than in Canada.
