I have not seen many ducks this year and was just wondering if that was the case all over or just here in the center of the state.

Shot three Woodies, four Mallards, a Ringneck, and two geese this morning! We didn't see much at all, but everything decoyed perfectly! Hunted a private little pond surrounded by corn this morning. The Greenheads were some of the largest I've ever seen for this time of year.
To answer your question, No! Not much flying at all. Can't wait til the big push in November! :thumbsup: Pete

Were you and your buddies also hunting a private pnd like Pete or are you guys hunting public? If public, are you on a large of small body of water?

I was out again this weekend in your neck of the woods and didnt see much of anything. One woodie and a couple of geese and that was it. So I gave up on the ducks for a while and decided to bowhunt that eve because of the lack of ducks. It was a good decision as I got a nice 9pt. Not bad for my first time in the timber this fall. :salude:
Maybe those ducks will be here in the next couple of weeks!?!?

I've seen more ducks this year than any other year. The ducks are EVERYWHERE on the mississippi. Lots of mallards and a lot of divers for this time of the year. Went out saturday night on the river and saw over 20 thousand cans on the lake.

Got out for a couple of hours on Monday. Wasn't much flying, which surprise me because of a cold front coming through. Saw 2 flocks of Mallards about 15-20 each and some geese but nothing much in Kewaunee. Going to try this weekend, let you know.

Lots of luck with the divers on rush lake.

Not too much pressure out there cuz the water's so low.
