    Mallards Everywhere on Lower IL river. I am curious to see this weeks Aerial Survey. I am estimating 400,000+ on IL River.

    If you hunt the IL river I would suggest staying all day if possible. We have seen more ducks (that are wanting in) in the afternoon.

    Good Luck and enjoy the good hunting now before it freezes up!

    :) :) :)

    I was hunting the illinois river bottoms today. Had a pretty good day yesterday!! Killed 17 total. From daylight to dark. I don't know if anybody else is having the same problem getting the ducks to finish?? It seems the later it gets the better the ducks work. Saw alot of travling ducks today mostly towards the evening though. I agree ILDUX35 stay all day if possible the hunting gets better. :)
