Isn't it about time to start talking about ducks? It's a little over two weeks out. How many are heading up to the mountain opener? (silly question, I know) I've already got my dekes restrung and cleaned up. I have a couple spots in mind for the opener but I need to do a little scouting before I decide which one to hunt. I can't wait. My hopes and goals for the season are: hopes: A banded bird a wood duck Goals: at least three geese at least sixty ducks Last year I finished with 1 honk and 43 ducks. Hopefully I can do better this year. Last year I didnt hunt much early in the season because of the heat and I didnt hunt much in January because of archery pig. This year I have a Dec whitetail hunt but it is a rifle hunt so hopefully it wont take too long away from duck hunting. I should definitely have more days on the water.
