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.

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.

Had a ok 2nd opener in the River zone. Wood duck numbers seem low overall this year. Migrators are arriving. 3 man hunt yielded 3 gadwall, 2 Wigeon and 1 Wood duck. 

No snow here, warmed up quite a bit today in the Lax area. Hit 63 in the afternoon. Cold front knocking on the door for sunday.
