2018 Waterfowl Reports
Unfortunately, a large majority of the nested birds that I have been watching for the last couple of weeks, have "lost" their nests. Sand-Hills, Geese and Ducks. Bitter cold, lots of snow, and rising ice and water took it's toll. I'll give em credit, they sat as long as they could. Hopefully, they may try to set again.
It took me almost the whole weekend to find a silver lining to this stupid snow, but I found it while shoveling the end of my driveway for the 10th time late Sunday afternoon as a pair of mallards flew over.
Big snow+big melt= water for a good duck breeding season (hopefully)
Not really a report, but I have been thinking about duck hunting so much lately. I got my shotgun out and swung it a few times, sorted through my old, ancient decoys and decided that I need new ones. Actually, wife's cousin decided I need new ones, with laughter and finger pointing. How long til the season? Too long, if you think about it.
