    So I guess it's still pretty slow there then? What is the average harvest like 10 birds a day? I've heard guys say that Union Co. is the best waterfowl area the state has to offer, but none of this seems to jive with that. I do have an upcoming reservation but it doesn't sound like its worth showing up for.

    It used to be very good at times thinking management issues let us know how you do if you go have permits for end of duck season but if it doesn't change not going to make the ride

    How was it over the weekend? Ice skating or were some holes kept open? Anyone going Wednesday? Hoping to get down one more time before the end of the year have a few dates left.

    I saw some guys on a local pond playing hockey today. Going to be awhile before it thaws.

    It appears the ducks have learned the routine. On the way to pit we jumped hundreds of ducks. Shooting time came and noon quitting time came and nothing was close.
