Day five: Wind, rain and teal

Share This Article

Believe it or not, a few folks killed ducks Wednesday morning. But that storm that came through kept most duck hunters at home and most ducks from doing much flying. We did get a little more water which will help, but we need a lot more. It will be interesting to see what the weather change does as far as bringing more ducks. If you’ve looked ahead, it’s going to be in the upper 20’s and lower 30’s early next week. That may not bring birds, but it will sure make it feel more like duck season.

Most of the ducks in the area are still teal, but a few scattered mallards are showing up on folks lanyards. The teal offer some good shooting but hopefully the big ducks will show up soon. One quick reminder, if you didn’t go, spend a little time checking out your decoy spread and especially your blind to make sure it’s still brushed up.

It seems like goose hunting is the best bet right now. There are still tons of specks in the area and the three-bird limit this year makes it worth spending a little bit more time in the blind to try and shoot some. A lot of folks will be out the next few days with the holidays. Maybe we’ll get a better report. Stay tuned.
