I hate having to derail a thread and explain what should be the obvious to a seasoned duck hunter but it’s the only way you’ll learn. Although unproven, it’s generally accepted ducks and geese get smarter as they move down the flyway (I’ll point you in the direction of effectiveness of mojos in Canada vs a state like LA or AL), some of that is from experience and maybe a bigger factor is pressure. This is the most recent duck hunter numbers chart I could find, from 2016. In a state like California with 39.5 million people, and a 107 day season you only have 47,100 active duck hunters. In a state like LA with 4.5 million people (and wayyy less acreage), we have 50,000 active duck hunters in a 60 day season. By all accounts you have more birds than we do every yr which also means less pressure on the birds that are there. Now factor in the pressure from the state to our north and even the village idiot could tell you that you have less pressure which in turn usually means dumber ducks and geese. To say you’ve been “hammering on em for 107 day season” is quite the stretch. And just for anecdotal evidence: I’ve hunted off of rafts of 100’s of ducks, and I’ve had much more success doing that than I have hunting 200yds from three different parties Bc that’s the least pressured area in the state. I won’t even waste anyone’s time when comparing specks either.
