How was the South Zone opener?

Postby waterfowler82 » Thu Oct 27, 2005 8:53 am

How did everyone's S. Zone opening day go? I hunted on the Pecos near Artesia and saw a total of 8 ducks all day, mostly mallards. I'm hoping we'll have some cooler weather up north to push down some birds. Anybody have any better luck?

I am going in to the morning. So, I will let everyone know how I did. I will be hunting the Rio Grande Bosque - been seeing a lot of birds at the bridges by Albuquerque. Hopefully, there will some further down south.

It turned out to be a nice day sitting next to the river. The ducks flew high for the first hour or so but after that nothing at all. Heard a couple of shots downstream and high up were some ducks that were out of range - "Sky Busters", oh well, it started early.

I'm surprised that there aren't more birds around here. It's damn near November; you'd think that we'd at least have some birds moving in that'd present some decent hunting opportunities.
