Date Hunted 12/7/2019:

Saturday was a real nice day for a duck hunt. 59 degrees with a north wind about 10 mph and cloudy conditions. Water height was normal.

We had 5 teal come straight at us early on and as many of you know once you stand up to shoot them they go strait up, a sight I never get tired of seeing. We knocked down 3 of the 5. There was a green winged flying with blue winged bunch. Later on a dosgris and a hen widgeon came in together and we shot both of those. I did have a bad miss on 6 teal that I had a good shot at. Got none out of it, not sure what happened but they got me. A solo teal came in and we got that one for a total of 6 ducks for the day for our blind.

One of the other blinds had some excitement shooting the first greenhead of the year for our camp. They shot another dosgris ending up with 2 ducks for the day.

Third blind shot 1 dosgris for the day.

Went to Saints game Sunday no duck hunting. We will be at it again on the 21st.

Delta,Least ya cashed in on some ducks Sat-me and my wing-man got two scaup and each of us shot a mottled duck,his landed and we could not locate it,mine shook off three shots like his Kevlar vest was designed to do its trick!First Split bout as bad as last year,though think I may have shot a few more ducks,not many but few more and think he had maybe 13 for first Split,think my totals were maybe 7-8 ducks,horrible!!!Hope for frigid conditions due N so I might be looking as ponds with greenheads vs scaup and buffleheads,not sure if and when the greys gonna show up!!
