I cannot wait. It is killing me with only 3 days left. It seems like an eternity.
I did get some real good scouting in this weekend and I found a large concentration of shovelers and woodies but also a mixed bag in large numbers of geese.
I may hunt with a Boykin, but she is going to be picking up geese and ducks come friday, even if the ducks are shovelers.
I know many who will not shoot them, but for me, they are perfect for freezing whole and use them throughout the year training dogs.
Everybody be sure and report in with numbers after the weekend.

I still have to check out my spot. Talked to someone and they say it may be dry just like everything else in the Delta. Sure hope there is some water there, at least enough to wade. Sure will be a pain if there isn't anything to hold the ducks. Will be glad to share info come Monday morning.

To me, what I find both strange and humorous, is the folks that have leases. They pump their fields and yet complain about not being any water. They have yet to figure out that if there is not any water and they have a flooded field, they should be getting covered up once the big push hits us.

Well I can tell you this...if they are pumping water they WILL be covered up. My spot was dry when I checked it Thursday.
