Seeing more ducks, we'll see if they stick around some.
John, we quit two birds short of our three man limit yesterday, with a dozen mallards, three pintails and one ringneck. Didn't see a teal, gray or other miscellaneous duck other than a couple early woodies zipping by and only had the one jack op. But I've been hunting good SWLA spots virtually, if not, every open day since '84 and don't recall ever having more birds working us at once. Didn't want to put my house dog in that weather, so we only shot what was on the deck over the decoys and not apt to blow over flotant on the way down. Still had the potentially grim comedy of me breaking ice over flotant to recover a few that made it there. Right nippy in the breeze, but a grand morning to be alive and in the marsh.
It's been a pretty good January but over all less than average.
exactly! Either the numbers are not what they really are or they aren't coming. I guess the habitat north of I10 and and south of I20 is horrible. DU PLEASE SAVE US
Can't speak for everyone in the area you mentioned but in my neck of the woods we are still very very dry for mid-January. We can't come close to wintering the ducks I have seen in the air over the last two weeks.
Last weekend in Pecan Island was Pretty good. Fulvous/Blue Wing/
Mallards/ Spoonies/ Ring Necks/ Green Wing and Flying Gizzards
Who'd a thunk so many squealers (as opposed to their weather-proof black-bellied cousins) so soon after a spell cold enough to put a bunch of mallards in PI?
Has also surprised me to still be seeing such a strong north to south big duck flight as this weekend's after the weather shift. Has been a split I flat hate to have ended.
Rick keeps a log book of his hunts at
Waterfowlforum dot net
Had to go to Arkieland but I kilt me a limit, mallard, pintail, gadwall. First OOSER limit!
3 ducks does not make a limit, but congrats dude
