Y’all didn’t do bad considering. I haven’t seen any coots whatsoever in our area of Reggio. I did see a good bit around Lake Catherine couple weeks ago while fishing. In the past large rafts of coots would show up on our property this time of year and stay all season. As long as we had coots around we always shot big ducks. Just don’t see them anymore like used to.

We'll count out blessings for what we were able to harvest definitely no complaints, Water level is holding, grass beds in all ponds, no issues with routs in and shot a few ducks, this artic front on Monday Night / Tuesday hopefully pushes more ducks into all area's. We'll just need to give the water levels a couple of days to recover from the front.

It will be interesting to see if there are any changes in the amount of ducks after this cold blast. I can't remember when it has been 31 degrees this early in the season. We have the food and we will have had cold weather with the freeze line moving southward for the upcoming weekend. We will all be out there to see how it goes, stay tuned?
