Well, I started this shift at work on September 1st and was originally scheduled for nights which would leave me most of the day to hunt. Last minute changes put me to days and when I get off work at 1930, 1.5 hours just ain't enough to spend quality time out there. I did manage to jumpshoot a few mallards on the 3rd. Last night I set up for cranes, they were there, but flying in the stratosphere. A little wind would bring them down. I'm presently in Cordova, a duck hunting mecca, but wish I could hunt the areas I usually do in Homer. I'll be working until the end of September and possibly a little more into October. Looks like the puddle ducks are safe for the most part and hope to get a good number of sea duck hunts in this winter. So far not a bust, but it sure has been tough so far. Might have to go to Kodiak to extend my season this December and January.
