    The kind of hunt that dreams are made of . . . .

    We had them good yesterday. A few big tolls and several small groups. Unfortunately we can only shoot two each, so it was over before it even got good.

    Nice video guys.
    We managed to find a nice group of mallards at the end of the season, but even taking turns and only shooting one drake at a time the hunts ended too soon.

    We found our mallards under a cannon net last evening and released scads with shiny new bands and a few of the hens with transmitters this morning. Wishing you all the best of luck with the banded ones and the worst of luck with the transmittered hens.

    A bunch definitely moved out since then. Kansas had some good duck hunting last weekend it sounds like.

    I'm gonna go out on a very short limb and assume that this was a baited banding site. I'm not trying to start another baiting, flooded corn blah blah blah argument but I have a question. Am I the only one that thinks it's wrong for the feds ,assuming that's who was doing the banding, to have bait sites while duck season is still in? Again assuming that duck season is still in there, it is here. Just seems wrong to me.
