    No water = no waterfowl. Tough year.

    Once the sunrises stop we won't have anything left to take pictures of.

    I hope their duck count is more accurate than their goose count.

    Had to grind the prairie my SWLA mudhole had become to a slurry both then and again in 2011, and mallards were #1 in our bag both years:

    This is the lowest water I’ve seen in our marsh since 2011… a lot has changed but what I learned is our water we have left is basically trapped and only evaporation can dry us up even more. I welcome it. We need many places to re vegetate and put off more duck food

    True, but not this time of year. Excessively low water this time of year doesn't accomplish anything except reducing foraging habitat for ducks.

    Are you quoting Foreigner?

    I don’t remember it ever being this dry during this time of year ever. Very strange. During several falls, yes, but not in mid-Jan.
