Well it was not the day we thought we would have, but is was better than some days. We seen about 50 flocks of high ducks and had a couple work our spread. We did get into one flock taking 4 out of it. Now lets put numbers to these numbers. I know we never seen every flock that passed in eye sight of our pits, but sure we seen most of them. But it sounds like we seen a ton of ducks today, but not really. Lets say there was an average of 30 birds in each of those 50 flock, that is a mere 1500 ducks. There has been days in the past years, when we would see 3 to 5 flocks with more birds than that in each flock. Back in those day we were told we were short on birds and there was a point system, and far less than a 5 birds daily bag. Still getting reports of big numbers north, but I want to be proved that there are birds, that the feds are claiming.
Not many Canada’s moving today either. I am guessing there may have been 8 to 10 high bunches, and we got into them only one time today. Took 4 out of a small flock of 6, so that was far short to what we were expecting to see today also.
Was a little cool today in the pits with the wind, but it beat the heck out of working a job. May have been warmer working but cold and hunting, is not all that bad. Nose is a little sore, but refuse to complain. Will be there tomorrow, and loving it.
Best get this posted, and work on tomorrows lunch, so please say a little prayer for our troops tonight, including their families at this holiday season.
See ya and check back
