Well, It started with a bang...

Duck season is 23 days old, and I have to say that it couldn't have started any better.  We absolutely were covered up with ducks for the first week.  Since that time we have went through a series of ups and downs, with several really good days, either followed or preceded by some really tough  days of hunting.  In the last ten days, we have experienced some of the coldest weather in December that I can remember in a long time.  Daily temps (highs and lows) are running ten to fifteen degrees below normal.  When it gets terribly cold, water sources begin to freeze, and when that happens the ducks will not fly very well.  When the cold weather lingers for very long, the ducks will migrate to warmer climates.  We are currently dealing with that very situation.  Lord willing, it will turn around, but until some new birds migrate, or it warms up, I believe we are in for some tough days in the field.
God Bless,
