They followed the flooded river bottoms down. They will either stick around or head back north.

I've had some pretty good hunts here in west tn and west kentucky. The weather just hasn't been cold enough in missouri and southern illinois.

One or two a day? Wow, that would be good for my area. Why don't youjust give up duck hunting and go to the Deer (wasted time) stand?

When it got down to 15 here a couple weeks ago we were covered up with birds (as much as covered up can be in East TN.) Went Thursday and got my buddy his first duck (Hooded Merganser) and that was all we saw, other than a few geese (I'm too poor for goose dekes and they wouldn't come to the call.) Anywho, it's supposed to stay around 20 degrees for the low all week next week, so I'm going to hit it up on tuesday and wednesday morning.

We have been seeing a lot of new ducks in Savannah. The backwater is out but it is starting to drop out. We saw a couple thousand yesterday hunting a big flooded wheat/corn field. It was to big for one person to hunt and we didn't have enough wind. Not much went in our favor, we only came out with 5. It should have been a slottering but we didn't have everything we needed. It is hard to get a bird in your decoys when there is 1000 live ducks sitting 250 yards away. And we didn't have a mojo, which I think works extremely well on new ducks in our area. I watched a few hundred go down in a hole today that I will attack Friday if everything isn't froze up.
