    I hunted by myself this morning and if either of my boys would’ve been with me, then my limit wouldn’t have came nearly as quick. It’s always, “their turn” as I’m always last to finish. Guess that’s the way it’s supposed to be, at least until I become geriatric.

    I have seen several groups of snow geese migrating and a few swans that were not here yesterday.

    I was curious how it was looking after a cloudy cool couple of days.

    Not a big influx of ducks in NEMO or the St Charles bottoms. I thought the last weather system would do it but I guess not.

    I can’t speak for the rest of Missouri but the bootheel only gets 1 large “influx” of ducks during season and thats during the Veterans Day time period. This is exactly why the south zone has always got the shaft during duck season. Any time we receive birds throughout the remainder of season, they could be from the north or from the south. Not all new birds come from the north. Drake mallards are like a buck in rut starting in mid to late December. They roam in any direction, especially on fair weather nights. I can literally step outside as I type this and within 10 minutes I’ll hear mallards of either sex. It’s like that all night, when it’s calm, clear and cool.

    Just don't shoot all the ducks this weekend after the snowstorm and save some until Christmas break!

    You'd think snow cover would help flush what's left up north down this way.

    There is a little trickle of a migration this morning. 3 big flicks of mallard ducks and a few snow geese.
