    We went to a private land spot we get to hunt a couple times a year that has been a go to on the junior hunt.

    We started late...we dont have a key to the gate so we are at the mercy of when the ranch workers open the gate. Today it was 6:42 so....

    Didn't matter much.

    Struggled today...he was trying to match yesterday and passed some birds early. Hen mallards and teal and a few bluebills etc.

    He would rather decoy and work birds than jump shoot so early on when he could have went jump shooting (which is better on a lower tide where we were hunting) and probably killed his limit he held off.

    The birds didn't seem to want back in, I think they fed all night with the big moon. So they found places to loaf and just didnt return.

    Killed 3 mallards and a Cackler in the decoys then went jump shooting and lied 3 more mallards. Passed on more miscellaneous ducks. He was being a bird snob...
