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.

Jefferson county

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.

Hunted Horicon Marsh, west side, south of Burnett Ditch on Saturday afternoon.....very, very little bird activity.  Plenty of other hunters in the marsh, heard maybe a half a dozen shots from 4 pm to close.....

Had a great weekend with a nice group shown here on Saturday and then Sunday in the rain and snow we had all fresh birds down with Gadwals, greenwings, mallards, and only a few woodies, and then a flock of buffleheads came into the decoys on a pond in the woods. That was a first for me. Great weekend!  Water was very high. Able to drive the boat into the beaver pond as the dam was under water. Got back to the truck and found it in six inches of water. Still rising on the Mississippi.

Great hunt Griz !  Definitely time of year to fill the duck strap with variety! 

Might get on the pond this evening otherwise back at it at the end of the week.
