We killed 15 this morning, mostly teal, and there were a lot more ducks than most every day of the first split. We had to get out of the blind before 8 a.m. and get in to the store, but it was a pretty good morning. There is a lot of water still and it was another dreary, cloudy day. Both of those work against us, but tomorrow it looks like it is going to be clear and have some wind. I certainly hope so.
As for the ducks, you can read the results of the state aerial survey in yesterday’s post and see the numbers are way down statewide. Talking to folks in Arkansas, it is the same up there all the way to the Missouri line.
We are going up to Jones in the morning and try to get on them. We had a lot of good reports from Saturday and several blinds killed their limits. But again, it was mostly teal and not a lot of big ducks. We have a lot of geese, but not the numbers we usually have. We are still pulling for things to get better as the season moves along. We’ve still got lots of days left. Just stay ready.
Be safe out there.
