Day 26: Some good; some bad

Share This Article

We usually have some kind of lull around this time of the season, especially when the weather doesn’t send us any new ducks. What we are seeing now is the same ducks going from one area to the other. It’s funny, but some places say they are zeroing and others are killing pretty good. Then a few days later, the areas are reversed.

We could use a good rain to bring in more water and we could use some real cold weather up north to drive ducks on down. Some folks on Hwy. 15 were killing today while others weren’t. And in the Mer Rouge area, things have been really slow. I talked to one friend up on the Cache River in northern Arkansas and they usually have as good a hunting as anyone. He said the past two weeks there have been the worst in the past 15-20 years.

The good news is that we’ll get some new ducks soon unless the weather is just crazy. Hang in there. It’ll be our turn soon.

I want to say thanks to all our customers who have been in Simmon’s Christmas shopping. We appreciate your business and we have been spending a lot of time in the store instead of hunting, but that’s what we are here for. Two more shopping days before Christmas! Come see us.
