I'm not so sure the surges in mallards I saw in the last few weeks wasn't a reverse migration. I saw that once before several years ago when we were shooting specs on CJ the end of season. Mallards showed up in spots in January this year and were gone within days, pretty weird stuff. I don't hunt a mallard rich area anyway, but there wasn't any consistency in mallard opportunities. Over the years the species I targeted was whatever species would cooperate and for years that was wigeon. 60% of our take for years was wigeon, but the numbers started to diminish and other than a few days this year we just didn't see many. We had a few years where goldeneye were king and that's what we targeted, I love decoying divers, I don't like to pass shoot. We've had redhead years, canvasback years and ringer years, but every year is different and I just go with the flow. This year as I've said was crazy for bluebills, but the three bird limit kind of stops you there. They are a blast to decoy and make some wicked noise when they are doing their thing. I went on my first goose hunt in 40 years a few weeks ago and even got a goose, that was kind of special. I've learned not to share any big success stories before the end of season which is just about an hour away as I write, too many internet scouters to do that. Now it's time to turn my attention to the Henry's Fork, it won't be long before we begin our migration to Ashton.
