Damn right they were frozen!!!
Took BFM posted advice on Socorro County, and did it pay off Big. Hunted Thurs & Fri with great success even collected a band ("13" Nov 20th BDA) an Avise Band which is a first for me. BFM, Thanks BTW.
Now to my point, when I left my truck at 6:00am Friday morning my truck temp gauge read 10* with a wind around 8-10 mph N-NW (not saying my truck is perfect nor my judgement of wind) but it was cold. I finished up around 10:30 am and noticed all my birds that I shot early that morning were pretty much frozen, as was I. Started my truck about 11:00 my temp gauge read 32* with still a 10 mph N wind.Sooo, your Damn right his birds were frozen!!!
NB, also hunted with a friend of mine on Friday whom I called at 11:30 to find out how things were going, his report was that NB had 4 Cinnies and he had 5 green and 1 Pintail and was heading home. I have all the confidence that NB finished up his limit of Cinnamon's after my buddy left.
Great job NB
Naysayers don't be so quick to Judgement!
I have personally seen how many Cinnamon teal are in this particular location and have been there for the last 3 weeks. It's been really warm for January.
