Postby Daffy Ducking » Mon Nov 24, 2008 2:51 pm

Boy what a day we had!! :crazy:Got up at 2:45 am and raced down to Prime Hook just to get turned away!! :mad:We were about the third party to arrive out of approx. 100 guys today. Went out to the river and boy am I glad we did that! We ended up with 9 Mallards, 2 Greenwing Teal, 2 Bluebills, and 1 Ruddy to mount for my wife! She loves Ruddy's! :yes:

Have not been sea duck hunting yet. I am still waiting to hook up with TommyToeDrag to do some sea duck hunting again this season. I did see a lot of divers though on the river yesterday (Bluebills, Buffleheads, and even saw a small flock of Goldeneyes). The Bluebills are in here pretty thick right now. Gonna try for some geese on the river tonite. :thumbsup:

Awesome hunts Chip :thumbsup: I especially like the one with the black duck in it :biggrin: Must say, in the pic with the black duck laying next to the mallard hens and teal, that mallard hen (second from the right) looks really odd in the breast area for some reason..

You getting some mute's pinned down for the trip? :rofl:

I have been hunting Prime hook regularly.We have done jack there this year. Hope fully we can get some cold weather to push some birds down.. I have heard Woodland has been somewhat decent this year and so has the river...
