Another great day in the outdoors.  Tons of wind and rain/mist early.  The 2 bluebill limit definitely makes duck ID a high priority.  Got a limit of bluebills (2 immature drake greater scaup), 2 drake canvasbacks, immature drake goldeneye, and a hen surf scoter.  The dark, gloomy, and misty day made ID'ing redheads difficult until the last second, then they were usually too close at some crazy shot angle to effectively harvest them....so none taken.

this should ruffle some feathers.

the south zone should open a week earlier, and the split should be a week later.. they let the early birds move through unscathed during the split every year.. than there's a lull   great

Freeguide,  We've been rather thin on the wood ducks over on the westside in the Mississippi backwaters. Decent opening weekend then rather low numbers since then. I blame the low water levels over summer and into fall.

Fowler2 hope not! Finally sperged on some $300 breathable rogers waders. They are nice too! As far as the woodduck thing, seemed bout average numbers. Have not hunted them since first couple weeks in northern zone.

strange year. I thought there was suppose to be record wood duck numbers. Opening day in a place we normally see dozens if not hundreds of woodys I counted a grand total of 13 wood ducks and was able to shoot 1.  south zone opener was about the same..... Been hitting all the good wood duck spots ever since the beginning of the season north and south zones and there have been just very little woody action anyplace I have been.  Normally there are woodys all over the place....    kinda disheartening

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.
