Last Weekend of Teal Season

Date Hunted 9/28/2019 Morning:

Two boats left the camp to give it a go. Water had dropped to a reasonable level for the hunt with a decent breeze. There was a decent amount of flocks of low flying teal around but they did not come in our area for us to have a chance the call them in. We did have three come in and we got two out of it. The other boat had none.


We left the camp and there was a good breeze but based on past hunts we were not very optimistic. Well as the saying goes you have to go to know. Probably 20 minutes after setting up we had a couple flights 10 or so teal come over the decoys and we know what to do with that. We had cat tail behind us and could not see what was coming from the back of us and about 15 teal zipped right over our heads hit them on the teal call and they all made the turn coming back with landing gear down. That is the best sight of teal hunting. Cha Ching! We stopped at 10 as that was our limit for the day, real good hunt.

Date Hunted 9/29/2019:

Only one boat left the camp for the hunt. Still surprised over the afternoon hunt we set up in the same spot, same decoy spread with two spinners. Minutes after we set up the teal started coming in nice flocks 10,15 and 20’s. We were able to get quality shots as they worked near the decoy spread. We had our limit (12) at 6:50. It seems flocks we saw the day before came to us today. I have no explanation as to what could have caused different results other than the fact it is teal hunting and I should know by now that is how it works. Fantastic teal hunt for the last day.
Re: Last Weekend of Teal Season
Great way to wrap up teal season.We found a few willing participants and may have found some decent spots for Regular Duck Season,which is always a goal of mine!Nice to see others are finding some teal that decided they needed to visit a plastic party!!!
