    For those who hunted since the cold front hit the state Monday, has you seen a difference in bird numbers? I can’t get after em until Friday, just looking for some motivation. Thanks.

    Yes, we've seen a difference. But you're gonna have to make up your mind: do you want to know what it's been, or do you want motivation...?

    May have been by moonlight - with blue-wings heading for Belize.

    Far fewer teal of both varieties, big ducks and even jacks flying our marsh the past couple days. This morning's was my blind's slowest hunt to date. Maybe tomorrow...

    Hunted this morning in NLA. Bunch of new birds, mainly new woodies, teal, and Gads. Some new mallards but I was expecting more.

    I was covered up in the ducks before LST, then it seemed as soon as the sun came up they all got up and left. Ended w a teal, mallard drake and a woodie, had to be out the woods by 9am though so I more than likely missed the mallard flight.

    Hunted Monday.. empty skies... I’m hoping the high winds and full moon made them sit. Haven’t hunted since to see if anything has changed.

    What about the geese? First few weeks were abnormally barren your way from what I heard. We don't have any real bodies around us either.

    Our marsh was even slower this morning, and we set a new season record low for my blind: couple mottleds and a gray. Buddy who's a serious and well connected speck hunter pulled in my drive behind me and reported that specks remain far from right.
