ONE VERY EXCITING DAY
We have had a great aerial duck show this morning. Both big and little ducks. Have see even some mallards. Will have all the limits we can have here in a couple minutes.would not be stretching it if I said we had 25 shootable flock between legal and 7:30.
Thursday, Friday and Saturday should be days to remember. Best be making arrangements for, a hunt.
We just had a flock in tight enough that one gun just took 4 out of a flock by him self.
Lacking one duck and we are limited out on ducks for the crew. We are done on ducks, at 8:02. I agree we are short on hunters, but i can never remember of that ever happening before. The boss said we could have polished off a box and a half of shell before 8:15. He is not to far off on that statement. Just need some people. I have not shot, because I have all the ducks in my freezer that I want.
Had help walk in, so have another limit to fill he is going to fill his own limit.
We needed one more duck and stuck around for a long time trying for it. Just think, call up just to check, get talked into hurrying to the pits. Told you have to kill your own limit, and leave a couple hours latter with 5 birds. Years ago that happened to me with whitefronts, but the limit was one bird. I was there about 20 minutes.
Did see one nice flock of about 30 whitefronts, that give is a good look, went south about 2-3 miles, then come back, only to break our heart again. They just love to do that. I really believe that is why God invented them. You know, to humble hunters. In the fall they won't get within 300 yards of a shotgun, in the spring they cuttle right up to your blind.
If tomorrow is better, it will be a fun day. I know I wouldn't miss tomorrow for NUTTIN.
We headed home at about 2:00. But one great day. To bad we didn't have a few more hunters. The boss thinks, we could of shot up about 2 1/2- 3 boxes apiece if we had wanted to today. Was some great sights, great shots, and some lasting memories of a day that might have been. Of course I can hear wings again, with these new ears, and we had some flocks of teal, that I think I could of heard without hearing aids. 50 birds at 3 feet over your head, make a loud noise, as they dive the lake.
