It wasn’t the best looking morning, but five of us got our limit of 30 ducks, so you can’t complain about that. Thanks to a lot of good groups of teal early, we had some good shooting. We had several good groups of teal that worked good. They were better early, but we saw them pretty much all morning. We finished the limit with gadwalls and pintails.
The mallards just won’t work for us. They have been here so long that I think I know them by name — old Joe, Bill, Tom, Greenie…. If you’ve been hunting much, you know what I mean. We still need some new ducks to help us have a great end to the season the next few weeks. I think they’ll come.
Most everybody I talk to is struggling a little with the same ducks in the area. There’s some good shooting, but not what we were hoping for over the holidays. Get out there after them, though. You never know when good will turn into great in a matter of a day or two. Be safe.
