With about 1/2 hr left in shooting time yesterday I did some math and figured it would be 230 days til I could shoot a duck in Illinois again. That sounds like a long time, but I'm sure it will be here again before you know it. As for this past year it was just OK. Just never really seem to all line up just right for a good period of time. Still had a blast, killed some birds, and made some new stories Thought we had the teal really line up but a lot left a couple days before the opener. We made due and had a couple of decent hunts Dakota after a good morning Brother and the teal tree Opening day South Central killed a few but the post hunt festivities were the highlight of the day Early on in south Central warm but windy had 2 of the nicer flocks of mallards for the year on this day.
