Hot coffee. In a thermos. That was the best thing about duck hunting Thursday. It was miserable weather, the kind that you can tolerate when there are ducks flying, but not when ducks are few and far between. Unfortunately, the latter was what happened for most hunters today.
It was brutally cold and there are few ducks. The next couple of days will be somewhat better with the weather, but not much. I don’t see any reason for the number of ducks to increase, but it could. You never know when a push of ducks will head this way because of frigid temperatures up north of us. And speaking of frigid temps, get your gear and affairs in order for the first part of next week. It’s going to be brutal.
