I know, I know..... do your own scouting... But due to gas prices and three kids I have not been out much lately (ok, only twice this year). The last time I was down to the Penisula unit, my son and I did not see a duck in the slough, but pretty large rafts in the river. And there were not many ducks on the refuge lake. Has anyone been down in that area lately, and want to share a report on numbers? I can only get out limited times, and don't want to waste the gas and time (I told wife I would only go 2 times a month) if the birds are not there yet. I would rather save my hunts for later in the season.
I know you will say, scout for yourself, but I would like to bring one of my kids with me next time I go, and I would hate to have him sit in a blind and not even see ducks, or spend time with me driving and walking trying to find a spot to hunt, since we get out so infrequently. Kid is losing faith in dad.....
Thanks for the help, and I understand if you don't want to share information since I don't have much to offer in return. (although I can hunt the handicap areas if ya wannna go with us)
