Fellas I had such a great time Friday morning for opening day! I was a little discouraged due to I was running a little late due to working all nite and coming home a few hours prior to leaving to go hunting feeling a little tired but, that all passed quickly as I proceeded to the blind. I knew it was going to be a great morning hunt because I had ducks in my decoys while I was still out there dropping more blocks!! While I was deploying my decoys in the dark all you could hear was flapping wings and every now and then a little chatter from passing flocks. As soon as legal shooting time arrived the blind around the bend from me shot and all hell broke loose for about an hour!! When the dust and feathers settled I had 2 teal, 1 gadwall, 2 mallards. Soon after that a lone black duck fell to my gun just as those little orange legs dropped out to land. No sooner did I retrieve him a flock of 5 mallards stopped in for a rest but only 4 left!
The rain and wind definitely had the birds that were here moving all around on Friday. I am stuck on an outage at work so I'm not going to be able to hit the water again until next week.
