Merry Christmas to you and your family from the Simmons’ family!
We had some good reports in from Christmas Eve hunts and if the creek doesn’t rise, I’ll be bringing you my first personal report in a few days. It’s a Simmons’ tradition to make a short duck hunt on Christmas morning before we celebrate more traditional ways!
Our group of four hunters this morning had 24 ducks and eight of them were mallards. I had one friend and his partner who haven’t seen hardly any mallards bring me a picture of a great limit from this morning of ducks from north of Bastrop in the Bartholomew bottoms. The photo is below. I also heard from several hunters who had good days to end a string of bad ones. There was a light wind and it was a good morning. This cooler weather can’t do anything but help and so good things should be ahead.
There is snow and ice all to the north of us and especially in Iowa and Missouri. That should send more ducks our way. Have a great holiday and don’t forget to check out the report each day. And watch next week for some exciting new prizes that you can win by simply sending an email.
