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.
