If I had to make a “duck hunter’s excuse list“, today would be a good day to do it. Still. Cold. No wind. Gray skies. Same old spooky ducks. Ice in the decoys. Did I mention cold? How’s that? The ducks just wouldn’t work for us.
Actually, we did kill a few, but it wasn’t anything to brag about. We hunted until noon to get 12 ducks and that isn’t very fast hunting. It was a tough day again. The ducks that are here are getting tired of seeing us. And frankly, I’m getting tired of seeing them. I’m ready for some new ducks to come from the north. Most hunters feel the same.
It looks like the ice won’t be a problem this week and maybe this is when the new ducks will come. There are loads of ducks north of here. They just need to come on down.
A reminder: Don’t forget to sign up for prizes in the Duck Report contest. We picked our first winner yesterday (see report). Be safe out there.
