We were a little slow over the weekend on the Eastern shore. Shot a couple blue bill, buffies, and mergs. Hit but did not kill a nice fat black duck Monday morning before heading north for brant. We shot 5 brant Monday afternoon on my first ever brant hunt before heading back home to our side of the bay. They are about as dumb as I was told they would be, came in on a string to 8 custom made floaters and 6 silos that looked like they were made by kindergardeners. It was fun though and I plan to do it again, they are neat looking birds. We saw a massive flock of what im pretty sure were teal Monday morning, maybe 4 or 500 going into an impoundment. Had a flock of maybe a dozen snows try lighting into the decoys 5 min after LST. Everyone was scrambling for their guns, I was loaded for ducks and thought they were Canadas so I was lightly calling to them while everyone tried to get their guns out. As soon as they saw everyone scrambling around, I heard a squeaky honk and they flared. Drew some feathers but choked on my first opportunity on snows of this season. Saw a few thousand more fly around us throughout the morning which was cool since we dont get to see that in the RP zone. Couple buffies and old squaw out there but not as many puddlers as we thought we would see. Hoping to find something cool for the last day of duck, so far it looks like mallards and a few geese is the best I can find. We will see what the freeze up brings us. I wonder if the river will get slushy with these temps. Anyone been out there scouting yet since yesterday? Im heading down there this evening to scout around for birds but just wondered if there was ice out there yet
does having multiple screen names on a forum and having a conversation with yourself make you an extra special rock star hunter?
