    January 12 and I finally shot my first duck out of one of our rice blinds this morning. Last year we shot over 200 birds from this blind this year less than 25. This is only the third duck killed at this blind this year and the blind has been hunted just over 25 days. We are averaging less than one bird per day of hunting. Going to be a difficult decision on wether or not to keep this blind at the end of the year. Is this a one year down turn or can we expect these same kind of results next year? Like I said tough decisions ahead.

    Willows area. East of Willows. North of 162.

    I’ll sublet one spot in the blind for next season. Special price just for $2000. Lol

    Same story with me, been in my blind 8 years and this is by FAR the worst year in this blind. We won’t give it up this year but definitely hoping this isn’t the new normal.

    Damn, checked in at noon. Stopped at 2pm.

    Can't imagine hanging in a tank all day for nothing... 20190112_140322.jpg
