I'm sitting on Bay de Noc, watching mallards and buffs fly over me. Waiting for a flag to pop.

Made a quick unplanned trip 500 south. Got the call, "birds are here!"

Just kilt'em four days straight. @80 ducks, ONLY six mallards? I can't believe it, the mallards must have passed by the teal, spooners and pins this year and are further south already? Lol. The teal buzzed around us, as thick as mosquitoes on a hot and muggy Wisconsin night.

Went out for the last hunt of the season yesterday afternoon- busy for the remainder of the season- a solo goose hunt, just me and the dog. Casual hunt, set up about 20 dekes and my snow-camo blind in a field I know they fly over in the afternoon between food and roost, and the weather and wind were perfect. Got my 2 birds out of the first two flights that came in, then we just laid in the blind and watched hundreds more pour into the field. I must have laid there quiet and still for about 30 min or more, just enjoying the incredible show as flight after flight came in. Walking in the decoys, landing so close you could hear the snow and corn stalks swish from their wing beats, pretty much all around me. Even saw a bird with a band. Dog was having a pretty hard time controlling herself with all the birds so close, but she did her best. When the geese got full or bored they all headed west towards the open lake, and I picked up the gear and was back home by 430. 

It was a pretty amazing hunt and experience just to sit back and watch birds- how they circle, talk and honk to each other, forage for food, etc. Just wish I could have shared it with a couple of my hunting partners as well. A great hunt to end a good season. Already looking towards next year. St. Croix County.
