2017 Waterfowl Reports
Every year i see less & less birds. But i always shoot the same amount. Just have to work a lot harder wich i do.
the less i see the harder i work.
Used to see 1000 a day and shoot 6 now i see 20 a day and shoot 2 . 3 days a week instead of 1.
In summary less birds = more time in field for me. Kinda like it
I agree that flight patterns have changed, and it's not nearly as easy to shoot a limit everyday, but to say there isn't any ducks is what's " ignorant." You can literally drive anywhere in Wisco right now and see plenty. Imagine what a guy would see in the pothole regions. To call me ignorant because I can see ducks with my very own eyes is rediculous. Guys like you need to take up cross stitching so the rest of us have more room to work the birds. Ive only been hunting in WI for 30 yrs, so maybe I'm not as seasoned as you are, but I have seen my fair share of changes also.
" Ignorance is bliss", good grief.
Sorry for the rant guys, keep the positive reports coming, I too cannot wait till fall!!
I like waterfowl hunting. During waterfowl hunting season come every hunter have only one question in mind, Where are the ducks?
To find ducks you can take help from the map also you can see hunt waterfowl for hunting. You can also use the duck voice device that interact other ducks. For better duck hunting, you must use choke tube in front of gun. Good luck for duck hunting.
Even more ducks come through in the fall with all the young ones. Right now you are seeing mostly everything at once. Flooded fields spreads them out and they get bugged way less. Plenty in the fall, the problem is they don't stay. No spots too rest. It will be fun again when hunters learn to give ducks a spot to rest during the season.
If we had the type of flight thru Wisconsin in the fall like we do in the Spring, it would be great. The bad part is that really changed decades ago. Documented studies have shown for many,many years, the Fall Migration has shifted more to the West and after coming down, they swing over more towards the East once past the Dakotas. In the Spring, we get more of a flight thru here as they head back North. It doesn't help for hunting, but it sure allows for some great viewing with the birds being in full plumage for mating season. I have to say some really spectacular photos of birds have been posted on L.L. over the years.
