Years ago, the colder it got, the more ducks you would see, not now. I believe more ducks pass thru here in October/November than any time of the year. There are ducks in Va. (just not when or where we can get to them). If this trend continues, waterfowling for the average person in these parts will be a thing of the past. Things have got to change: food supply, season change etc. for hunters to keep at waterfowling. Everything in this world revolves around big $$$. If you've got plenty of cash, you'll have no problem hunting waterfowl in Va. Just over 2 weeks left to hunt...go as much as you can or can stand, before you know it...it'll be out for another year.
We're not down here in the blind playing baby house!
