I haven't seen much at all!! I know some people that did really good opening day on the river here other than that nothing.. I have a blind on the big lake and its really slow right! It's killing my buzz.. Hopefully they starting refuging and getting active.

Yeah I agree!! I went out tonight for a night hunt and we didn't get squat.. Although it wasn't the best time because he had a storm pushing to the north.

There's already huge flocks in California and even further south, I think your migration came and left a little early this year
Give a man a duck... Feed him for a day... Teach him to fowl hunt... Feed him for a lifetime...Teach him in your spot... Learn to hunt a different spot....

It was OK opening morning here. (Eastern Ontario, South of Ottawa). Still a fair amount of wood ducks and teals around. I have not seen any of the northern mallards yet (Still some locals in groups of 5 or 6). I think there are still good times to come, mind you, Ive just been in larger swamps, no big water.

Geese just started flocking up and heading across the St. Lawrence here in the past week. We still haven`t had a frost yet.

Apologies for butting in, but have you hunted the Greater Bobs and Crow system for ducks? I have been toying with the idea of swapping my yearly summer fishing trip for an October cast-n-blast week perhaps next year. I know the fellow I rent from is a fowler, but like many locals around here [Pennsylvania] he is a bit tight-lipped on the quality of the duck hunting. Specifically I would be interested to know if your area of Ontario sees any decent number of divers. I don't get into them much at all in north east PA; I mostly see Canad geese, woodies, and mallards.

I really love visiting your neck of the woods, and would love to have another excuse to visit every year!

Thanks for any guidance you can provide.
