There were a good many ducks today so that is a good change for sure. Most of them were teal, but that’s fine, too.
We had one blind that killed 21 and we got 22 today. That’s a good day this year for sure. Again, most of them were teal but a few people are killing some gadwalls and wigeons. We have very few mallards being killed in the area.
The good news is that there are tons of ducks coming into south Arkansas. They aren’t coming on down because the season is closed there and there’s no reason to come on down. But when it opens back up, I expect bunches to come down here. With our season closing Sunday afternoon, maybe they will build up over the next two weeks and be here in numbers for the second split.
I’m torn about tomorrow. I want to go get the ducks, but that big buck that has been alluding me is the middle of the rut, so I may go back after him. I’ll let you know tomorrow. Either way, you are going to need some bug spray again!
In any case, be safe out there and enjoy the last day of the first split.
