Wifey texted me this adorable pic of our soon-to-be-two year ole grandson,enjoying a nice bubble bath with three decoys,no rubber duckies for this lil gent!!!His dad and I used to hunt together and he got out of regular duck hunting with me and Katrina year we destroyed Big Branch ducks,mostly mallards,greys,teal,widgeons and a few trophy mottled ducks and rarely did we shoot scaup!!Love getting youth indoctrinated into my passion of duck hunting,just hope we get back to more of a normal migratory pattern before my grandson would lose interest from 'MT'skies!!!He and other much-older youths are obviously the future of duck hunting and with the miserable past few seasons,not sure our youth would stay focused!!!

Better than rubber duckies but big branch has been on decline for a long time now. If you intend to start a new hunter duck hunting I would hope you would search for other places to get them started.

madhook,Ya right to a point, but I certainly know that there are pockets of awesome duck hunting out there,just gotta put in de time(I for one did not scout one single day,my bad) and I intend to bust it next teal season by thorough scouting and coordinating my efforts with my duck brethren.Lotta folks NEVER post and I do not mind either way as where I hunt is a total chore to get to and not this season but last season,there were absolutely plenty of mallards,enough to where if I had a Go-Pro on my head,one woulda thought I was in our neighboring state,Arkansas.What I like about Big Branch,besides proximity and familiarity with the geography,is the shear beauty and quality of ducks and how often ya gonna see bald eagle land not that far from ya and how often ya gonna spook small herd of does,while duck hunting!!!Know we have met a time or two,fishing Cane and just got off phone with duck die-hard and we hitting T-Funky tomorrow,looking for fat sac a lait!!!
