Griz, check your PM.

Most years I hunt all 3 WI waterfowl zones.....I am a statewide hunter.  There are 6-7 counties I frequent the most.  I love hunting the big open water.  Have even shot green-winged teal 1/4 mile out from shore on the "big pond" (LM).  Unbelievable to some....but true.

Saw a flock of 25-30 trumpeter swans north of Hwy 49 in the Horicon marsh east of Waupun yesterday. Immature and adults in the group. Considering there are only 100 estimated to be in the state that is pretty special.  Very few ducks seen.  Marsh will be locked up in a week. Plenty of fields will be harvested soon as the ground freezes.  Find moving water or lakes for a hot spot.

Are there many swans yet ? Family and I are going out to the river this weekend  . One year we were right on the edge of the ice forming.  Must have seen a thousand or more .

A very light trickle of new birds over the past several days.  A wide variety too.  Yesterday killed 2 green winged teal and a bluebill.....missed a couple of birds also when my Benelli didn't cycle correctly.  Totally disassembled it last night, including rear spring.  Like new this morning.  Today it was gadwalls, a bluebill, and a mallard.  Missed one other bird that was within range.  Saw mallards, gads, pintails, teal, shovelers, cans, bluebills, buffs, and a goldeneye.   Also had a flock of tundra swans pass by.

Whichever day has more wind would be my choice.

More migrating birds today than yesterday. More swans coming through. My shooting stunk bad today. Seen maybe 3 wood ducks. There pretty much history. 25 degrees this morning with a very light snow dusting. Hunting partner took 3 mallards and a widgeon home. Bella was wearing the vest today...brrrr

Back to work tomorrow...Boo

Limit of geese Sunday morning.  Field was soupy as heck and had to walk everything in.  I did not want to get stuck on my first time out.  No ducks came close enough to shoot.  Was done early and they were trying to land in the decoys as I was picking up.

Great decoy action this morning. Good chop on the water at go-time.  Flight fizzled after 8am. Bella on a rest morning. Selective shots only.  Few Woodies still around. My barrel swing could not catch up.  The Woodies flew with vengeance and bitterness. There not liking the cold temps. Gadwall and a Greenhead made the morning complete. Swan flights arriving....

Overall has been a very good week for killin limits of mallards down here in Illinois. Buddies have been shooting limits of honkers as well. I prefer sticking with the greenheads for now so that’s what we’ve been chasin. Seems like everyone up north is killing birds, which is always good to see! We are having the same issues with water obviously. Scouting has been paying off significantly as usual.  Congrats to everyone and be safe! Keep sendin em down to us!
