2020 Waterfowl Reports
Good grief Griz, Swans and buffys already! I'm really not diggn this cold weather pattern so far. Season for me will be done in two weeks if it stays this direction.
Skipped work today! Managed 2 mallard and a goose still hunting large reservoir holding alot of birds. Tundra swans have showed up along with some buffleheads. Had 3 green wing teal milling in the blocks today as well. Ice has formed in shallow water. Season seems nearing end at half way? Jzzzzz where is up north? Never smacked woodies in the field. That sounds like fun.
after a 2 week hiadus hi atus ?? um vacation from huntin post wedding I made the trek back north to the field of dreams and it did not dissapoint 14 woodys dead sat and 11 dead sunday, they keep coming bigger flocks but still dozens crazy! great to watch the dogs run in every direction and huntin with good old friends in the corn.
hopefully more mallards and black n whites soon. scouted bigger water saturday and did not see much of anything yet.
Nice hunt SM, Wow, goldeneye already.
Slow sunday morning hunt for us. 2 Wigeon, missed a few others. Just not a good decoying day. Weather and wind change seem to be the difference maker from the previous morning.
Sorry to hear the poor hunting out on Horicon Marsh. Alot of great memorable hunts out there from years past.
Was out on Horicon for the second opener on Saturday afternoon. Hunted a spot I've never hunted before (bogs really changed some of my spots), and saw maybe 20 total ducks in 3.5 hours. Shot once at a woody passing by and missed. Anybody else seeing anything out there this season? I've had a couple poor outings. I'll be trying again Saturday morning..
Interesting day in terms of different waterfowl species seen. Mallards, wigeon, pintails, shovelers, ringnecks, cans, and even goldeneyes. Got 5 today, but didn't take advantage of a few additional opportunities that were there (looking wrong way, etc, etc). Pic of 3 drake mallards and a drake goldeneye. 1 bird was not photo worthy.
When all the scouting and hard works pays off. I don't normally hunt 4 guys but we found a good batch of birds last night and I felt comfortable we would have a good shoot. Well did we ever. 22 birds total. 12 wood ducks 8 teal and 2 pintails. A hunt i won't soon forget. Birds had feet down and we never made a shot outside 25 yards. Great day with a great friends. We shall see what tomorrow brings.
