very slow. Shooting just about every bird seen is not a good thing...numbers are so low, that there are no numbers to report. If you get a shot at "a duck" consider yourself lucky, and you better take them on the first pass cause they are moving on and not staying around here in "Starvation Bay"!
Got a silly question for 'ya I.G.-
Have ya'll had any noticeable, more than usual flocks that just circle a couple times and fly off and lite just out of shotgun range?
In other words-
They just won't decoy good lately? They give you a little interest, but won't completely commit.
Bet I've had 10 different times last week flocks that circle a couple times, get 60yds. and on the last pass when they get behind the blind go off and lite 60-100yds, away.
I've checked everything behind the blind, dang- there's nothing obvious back there that would make 'em second guess.
Had ducks in the decoys a couple weeks ago with less bushing and while working outside on the blind in the middle of the day.
Maybe I'll rip the bushing off all the blinds and sit outside in an open boat beside 'em the rest of the season
