Well the streak is in tack yet. For the seventh day in a row we harvested Canada’s. We took 4 again today. I think this is the third time in a week we have taken 4 Canada’s. Any way for the total of the seven days it is up to 73 now. That is better than 10 per day average.
But, the neat thing that happened today is, we never had a bird fly out today. Was a real wrecking crew, in house. First we had 5 ducks come in, then there was a lone Blue, and then the 4 Canada’s, and the shot duration was short and the results was always the same ALL DIP.
Ducks: Well we did see a few Mallards today, but had a report from a hunter, that hunts with us sometimes. He was hunting in the Watertown, So. Dakota area, this past week end and reported to us that Sand lake Reserve is reporting 85,000 ducks, but that is just a drop in the bucket, of what is rafted up in that area. His quote was “I have never seen so many Canada’s and Mallards in my life”. We trust this guys assessment. So that is a positive thing we have to look forward to. Those birds come through our area. Now if we can get them to come this way in the next 2 week, should help our very low bag count. Just don’t see or have the early morning ducks, flying around. Always used to have a shot or two , before sun rise. You don’t see a duck at that time anymore. We would set and watch the clock, just waiting for it to get legal so you could shoot, but today you eat your lunch and drink your coffee, with no worry of missing a shot.
As always please say a little prayer for the troops tonight at bedtime, and please check back
See Ya Carl
