Hunted from 11-2 and it wasn’t a bad hunt. Ended up with 2 gwt and a nice green head. Got a whopper headache and called it quits early. Watching the dog work made the hunt a memorable one. 2 out of the 3 were tough blinds.

Bigger bodied birds, full plumage, loaded with fat.

How do you know if they are local or northern? Did you ask them? Seriously though if you have a way to tell where they are from I would like too know. Been tough for us with the high water. Heading out west in a week so hopefully that turns the season around.

Still lots of woodies around.  Saw few flocks of divers today. Quite a few geese flying this morning also.

Took home a pair of woodies.

West Central WI, Yesterday, 4 northern Mallard and two widgeon, mostly puddle ducks seen. Today, 2 local mallard and two ringers, flocks of divers on the move, only saw 1 flock of puddle ducks. If I could shoot I would have limited out.

I hope people do go elsewhere than Horicon!  

It seems the last several years are all about timing, it's not holding the resident numbers that it once did.

But, when it's on, it's on and no other marsh I'd rather be in for the opportunity at every species of puddler and diver that comes through this area of the flyway. 

Just my $.02.

Honestly when was the last time Horicon was good? I've been reading the same report for years. Tons of hunters and no ducks. I get the magazine's hype it up but if the hunting sticks you'd think people would go somewhere else imo.

It was a banger this morning! Nice to see some big northern birds!
