Hunted public marsh for only the 4th time all season. Managed couple woodies that decoyed. Other than that not much working marsh. Jumped some mallards while paddling back to landing. Lots of divers using as roast. Two other groups out, never fired a shot.

Lots of birds flying this morning in the fields in Southeastern portion. Could of shot some flyers but only shot what cupped or landed in spread.  Called them in from long distances today.  No water in the marsh or river so set up in the field today.

Late report from opening day out on the Mississippi. Three guys and nine woodies. Nice to be able to just pick out the drakes.

Quick hunt before work this morning. Crystal clear morning. The wind they called for never showed up. A few new flocks of birds. The usual early shooters. Had over a dozen birds in my decoys when someone a hundred yards always shoots ten min early. I hollered check your watch. They left within the hour. smh. All in all not a bad morning other than that.

Yesterday was some of the worst sky blasting I have ever seen. One of the most frustrating hunts of my life. Had one blue wing the first 2 mins after that nobody would let the birds flock after flock getting shot at on swings working my spread or flaring off other shots. Stuck it out and got lucky with a good flight at 11 ended up with 5. Today was a bit of a let down a lot of birds left and only a small amount replaced them. We still managed 10 ducks and a goose. Couple nice northern green heads! Mallards were fresh and decoyed hard. Amazing things happen when they're able to enter the marsh!

My hunting partner and I had a good second opener. We hit up one of my mallard holes on Saturday with a limit of mallards. Sunday we hit up one of wood duck holes ended with a limit of woodies. Didn't see much still all local birds so set up was key to get the stale birds in.

Dark, windy and misty morning at Horicon area field. Classic weather unfortunately the field that the owner gave us to hunt had the wind blowing right into our faces. Still managed 3 geese, 3 mallards and 2 woodies between the 4 of us. Ducks worked all morning.
