Seems like no one from RI likes to actually use forums, they mostly just lurk. It happens at all the RI forums I visit both hunting and fishing they are always dead as far as input.
It's been a banner year so far this year for ducks this early in the season, I know of a couple sholvers being shot, A euro widgon was shot the other day and some pins were shot by a few of my friends so far. Almost going back a month there was a raft of bluebill 2000 strong in the bay, this was the first time in maybe 30 years I have seen them here that early. A first ever for me just before the freeze there was a raft of 300+ rudy's on a pond in south county.
