    It appears I am surrounded by experts.
    Seen my first robin in the yard this morning and been counting more woodies at dusk headed to a roost near my home. Hopefully the ducks are coming. Good luck to all on the upcoming opener.

    Seen a lot of ducks finishing up the blind on Friday. Teal, grays and dogs/necks. 1,000’s poul d’eau too. Planned to take my son Saturday morning, but he woke up sick. Excited for next Saturday!

    Poule d'eau were conspicuously scarce in our area last season, but showing in numbers, already, when we fished gators in October. Jacks are the only migrant ducks I'm seeing in real numbers. Kids did shoot some grays and pintails over their weekend, but big ducks were far from thick over our little piece of SWLA.

    Funny Rick, since "Pumping- off" the last Hurricane flooding in my "Pump-off" the Poule d'eau have increased in numbers.
    Ohhhh.... thx for showing me how to spell "Poule D'eau", again. Otherwise, I ain't seeing many other local or migrating ducks. The Raptors have moved in by GREAT Numbers, I hate to say it, but they need to open a season on them.

    Also, had a Bobcat whip out my small population of young rabbits around my camp. It's sometimes hard to figure in "predator's" into a wildlife management Plan, that is, aside from human predator's.

    Prolly that same one you released a few years ago from that leg trap. This is his way of saying thanks.

    Shot 12 limits this weekend in Rockport, Texas. Daytime temp was 88°. Wasn’t quite the opener as last yr, but still far and away more birds than I’ve seen in LA. I still just don’t understand how they’re far more south, and get far more birds.

    Regardless, I’ll be in NELA Sunday for the Veteran Day hunt. Be nice to see a mallard or two. Haven’t had any reports from up there so I don’t know what to expect.
