i wouldnt say the ducks are more dumb when they are new to the area. They just dont know where they should go which makes it easier for them to respond to decoys, but theyve been shot at a lot, sometimes i will watch mallards work fields with no hunters in it for hours when in the tree stand deer hunting and they never land. they just circle forever then leave. They are definately more weary.

My experience with new birds is that they are desperately looking for friends and want to do a meet and greet. Hell, when we're in the fields they'll damn near land on the mojos.

Yeah, with almost no water around here, why would a duck want to stay? While the ducks will be concentrated this year, i fear for an iffy season... Lucky southern states. I wanna shoot some baby teal!

There will be ducks to be had but I too fear it won't be as easy as some of the last few years. Depending on the rainfall and how much food is left we may not have that many migrators stick around very long this year. But all we can do is hope for a good year I guess

Not to mention the horrible corn crops in my neck of the woods. The geese will be concentrated, but i doubt they will stick around for long. Looking for greener pastures!
