Grand RIver Marsh
Good Luck Hunting All!
It looked like opening day out there on Sat. the 10th with guys every 100 yards !!! Which I dont get because it is a pain to get out there and the shooting has been slower than most years. In addition goose numbers seem to be really down and talking with DNR people they agree GR doesnt hold nearly the geese it used too.
Went down the channel off of Hy. B. Enough water to float the canoe, barely. Once to the end, had to drag it probably 80-100 yards thru the thigh-deep muck. Once in the open water, everything was good.
As I was looking for an island to set up on, I found myself in the refuge...OOPS! Got set up right at opening, as the ducks were flying everywhere. Once I got set up, it got kind of slow. Taking my 1st shot, I found my 11-87 was only working like a single shot. Had some shots, made none. Had to leave @ Noon.
So despite getting turned around, having a broken gun, it was a decent day. Little hunter pressure, good weather, and JUST enough ducks to keep it interesting.
