    Went to a woodie hole and seen a few but nothing close. Even the higdon pulsator couldn’t fool em this morning. Lot more duck hunters in my area than opening weekend. Need some OOS birds to crash the party, the locals done went stale. Good hunting to all.

    We lucked into a full strap with eight species, but I agree that we could really use some new ducks.

    We had just enough crows fly over to make it interesting.

    Saw 2 mallards. Bunch of woodies but never got a shot. Next week in NLA looks glorious.

    Salvinia all in the Boeuf green tree. It will probably be the last yr it’s huntable. Spreading retarded fast.

    I’m betting a jack was in that pile.

    I tried to bring my six year old on her first duck hunt. We had to go to my third option before we found a place that didn’t have ten people already. I don’t ever remember seeing Thanksgiving morning so crowded.

    The only thing around was a few woodies.

    Thanksgiving mix was: green-wing, mallard, mottled, pintail, ringneck, shoveller, wigeon and wood duck. Pretty much an anomaly that no grays or blue-wings found their way onto the strap, as they've been our third and fourth most common birds, respectively, to date this odd year.

    Put the boat in and it was bad foggy. When it’s foggy, lights make it worse best to turn them off. Rounded the corner and the whole world was illuminated I couldn’t see anything. Two surface drive boats had their light bars on the front on full blast were lost and had gotten out the channel and were banging stumps left and right. They asked me if I was lost too. I told them I am now if they would shut the lights off I could see where I needed to me They missed the turn from the get go and were headed north instead of south Lost as a goose

    Were eight blue-wings (and a gray) in this morning's five species mix. As Forrest's mom would say, hunting's like a box of chocolates...
