    We went out this morning and got 1 mallard and 2 whistlers, passed up on a few hen whistlers, there was flock after flock of sawbills, if they were have decent on the table we would have had a easy limit of them. Seem plenty of canada's.

    Sawbills are mergansers, thats what my Dad called them when he hunted, I have pretty much called them the same. Just look at there beaks. Alot of samll flocks of Canada's all coming from Swanton area.

    If your looking accross the lake they were coming from the right of campbells bay, going either over Millers trailer park and or over the customs. When we headed home I took the S curve road, Seen quite a few big flocks heading towards the 202, also just before the S curve seen about 20 Turkeys.

    No puddle ducks to speak of at all, not like last friday/saturday where there were puddle ducks galore. Guess we need the wind and the cold to push them out of the swamps and fields.

    Went back again this morning Friday th 21st, we got 3 whistlers and 1 bluebill. Lost a couple of birds as they ventured into Vermont to far for me or the dog to chase. Whistlers were flying pretty good but wern't decoying good at all. I heard plenty of shooting towards the Swanton bridge. Heeard 1 flock of geese but that was it for geese, except for the one that flew about 10 feet over my truck on Middle Road!!
