Some buddies of mine had a draw right around Christmas. They did about as good as anyone. Killed a redhead a bluebill and a mallard. There was one cat and his buddy who got first pick and went someplace far away from the main blinds and killed 9 including a nice sprig.
What will burn you at hog island is the folks who just want to shoot the gun. Not even sky busting but shooting ruddys and coots.
Last time I hunted the main season there was about 5 years ago. We had some birds there too. Had sprigs on final approach three separate times and the next blind down from us would start in on swim-in ruddys, which they would then chase half way across the impoundment blazing away at trying to finish them off. It got old. We never fired the gun that day. The group with the "good blind" which I think was #5 that year, killed 13 ducks and the guy who had a swan tag got his swan.
I have had two really great early teal hunts there.
Tell your wife you love her, wrestle in the yard with your kids, shake your best friend's hand, let your dog sleep on the bed, and thank God for all the blessings in your life.
