I wasn't seeing big numbers until Thursday night and there were over a hundred hitting a field right before dark.

Hearing guys in Michigan saying that ducks are stacked saying they have never seen anything like it before.

I was out Friday, all day Saturday, Sunday afternoon, Monday morning and Wednesday afternoon. I saw maybe two or three small flocks of new divers move in. Absolutely no push of puddlers in our area that I saw whatsoever. Mind-blowing considering that cold snap. I figured it'd be hot and heavy with small water icing over. I was out on a couple migration days earlier in the season but I haven't witnessed "the big one" I am used to seeing. I can remember days when I was a teenager when I'd look high up and see thousands upon thousands of ducks in the stratosphere migrating. This years been pretty weak. Ill be out again in the morning giving things a look.

Been seeing anywhere from 200 to 2000 mallards EVERY hunt since the end of October up here in the northeast part of the state. Birds have been tough though. They either fly high and right on by or they tornado into the spread by the hundreds. Seems to be no middle ground this year so far. Killed some and missed many so far. Been fun, unfortunately it ends in two days. Hoping the Christmas/New Years period when it comes back in is good.

It was good for me today. Got my 4 Mallards in about 15 min. and decided to get out early and save it for tomorrow. Wouldn't you know had a single Pintail and then a pair of Pintails buzz me while I was picking up. Don't know how I got the hen. Coulda swore it was a drake when I pulled the trigger. Oh well, she'll taste just as good. :biggrin:
