Clint Eastwood type duck hunting

Share This Article

You remember the old Clint Eastwood movie, “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly”?

Welcome to duck hunting this week. Not quite in that order, but we had a bad day, a good day and then Wednesday was just plain ugly for us. We shot three ducks — a pintail, a shoveler and a teal and didn’t have any chance to shoot anything else. By 7 a.m., it was obvious it would be one of those days. We’re struggling. Some folks did a little better, but not us.

On Tuesday, we had a fairly good hunt in the flooded woods, as show in the photo. But it still wasn’t awesome. This change in weather coming over the weekend with a little rain may help. It sure won’t hurt. Stay tuned. And be safe.
