I've been hunting close to 40 days a season around here for the last 5 years and have traveled from Crane Lake to Cotton and every stupid lake, river, stream, res., and beaver pond in between. I seem to have maybe one or two really great hunts a year. Usually, I feel lucky if I even see 10 or 12 ducks on a trip let alone get some shooting. There's tons of wild rice this year and still no ducks. I've read about the steady westward migration of ducks out of this flyway but this is ridiculous. Can anyone out there report consistently good hunting in this area? I'm starting to loose hope. A duck a day on average just doesn't cut it - my dog is getting very bored.
