A buddy told me they are in UNREAL numbers this year, wdfw officials say the flyways have shifted so birds that used to pass through on the east side now pass through the wet side! So the skagit area will experience extreme numbers this year, Makes me sad being a east sider :crying:

Normal duck conditions. Just wetter this year, so there are some to found inland. Their will still be the normal 1,000 hunters out. That won't change.
Cut Um!
Real ducks don't have a competition sequence they follow! Hint, hint!

Nope that is false. No ducks in Skagit county except coots. Mines well go to the eastside :thumbsup:

If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

That may have been true last year, but this year all the ducks are heading towards skagit... All the coots are on the eastside

I looked it up. A coot isn't even a duck. It is part of the rail family. Funny that they are all over Skagit and I haven't seen one yet. Maybe I have been hunting in the wrong place. Judging from the posts I have seen they must taste pretty good. I would be down for a coot hunt. :thumbsup:
