It was a good opener for the 2022-23 duck season. Good weather, some water and quite a few ducks. Just three of us hunted and we had a good spot we had been watching for about ten days. It was holding some good numbers of ducks.
We were able to get a limit in about 30 minutes, which is a good deal. It was a mix of teal, gadwall and a couple of spoonies. We talked to several bigger groups that got limits of 30 and some others that came close. Of course, there are always a few spots where the ducks just don’t show up, but that happens almost every day of the season.
Overall, it was a great start. We actually lost some birds with that cold weather last weekend and earlier in the week. They headed south for warmer weather. We haven’t gotten any reports on whether more ducks are on the way or not. We’ll just have to wait and see. Fifty nine days to go!
Stay safe. And come by and see us for all your sporting goods needs!
