Killed a mess of black ducks on and around Saginaw Bay. I’ll never forget a late Nov hunt at Fish Point. During deer season so the duck hunters were sparse. Me and a buddy killed our 1 each black right away. Then for the next 3 hours it was non stop flight of blacks into the decoys. Snowing hard all day and pond freezing up as we were standing in it. Another black story. My first ever hunt in Michigan(just moved from the west coast), opening day 2002. Little rice lake. Set up my decoys and waited for LST. 2 minutes into shoot time, pair of mallards hovering over decoys. I ups and double. Dog brings back a black duck. Then it hit me...doh! Stupid dog never found either mallard.
