How did you do opening weekend or any days at all. I hunted Ray Roberts opening weekend and came up with 5. Way crowded.
If it flies it dies. What was that, I don't know, shoot it anyways and figure it out later.

i hunted lake fork, really crowded, found that 3:00 am was the magic number to beating everyone. My dad an i together pulled 9 from the sky, but could have had more if we had shot better!

Glad to hear you saw some birds, I'm going to be up at fork all of thanksgiving weekend at my folks, I planned on taking my boat and doing some hunting. Did you see any tree ducks I could shoot a limit of them of off my parents dock.

Just got back from Guadalupe Delta (Tues. morning). Got a limit of teal and gadwalds. Saw lots of other ducks. Could have limited out in 30 minutes if I had wanted to shoot shovelers. The WMA is in good shape, with plenty of water and ducks.
