Well spotty here, is pretty good for here haha. I know guys that killed 10, Friday. We should have killed at least 5 so that's decent for around here. Bad for places but we're not most places.

I had a good time and a few good chuckles. This hunt was put together with a buddy of my uncles that hunts with us a lot. He is pretty green, and cant call so he asked if I would tag along and basically put the boys on some ducks. I was happy to do so. The one dad I had never met and he brought along his 8 year old boy. His dad kept telling him to keep quiet and pay attention. The boy would a question and his dad said, "I don't know, your going to have to ask the guide". He was dead serious. This happened more than once. I laughed.

It was awesome! I remember that season well, limits every hunt except 1 and that was because someone miscounted birds and we were one short.

I heard about a good new bunch of teal over the weekend, but spent most of yesterday morning in rice without seeing anything but mottleds and squealers. Was hoping to hear or see specks...

Fulvous and black-bellied whistling ducks, which are mostly Summer residents in the case of the former and year-long residents, like the mottleds, in the case of the later.

No teal. It was eerily quiet and void of birds, yesterday morning.

I've seen a pick up in the nuber of the birds around here early this year.

I spent Thursday through Sunday on the lake with friends, and there were more ducks around, than I have ever seen on that lake this time of year.
There are only two types of people in the world, those who love duck hunting and those who never have duck hunted.

South winds and lack of thyme in the south this fall is going to cause the birds to do a south-east-back north migration to the traverse city area of Michigan

Wrong again mustachio. There's tons of thyme in the south as no one is backwards enough to ruin a good thing.

Huge numbers of woodies moving through eastern WV this week, with a good number of them blue teal with them. Bad thing was all the eagles following the ducks. Latest ever for the blues, earliest ever for the eagles. Go figure.

The buffleheads are the only migrators to arrive in my area so far but I am way down south. Local duck populations are off the chart. Should be an interesting year!
