Been a ridiculously sub-par duck season,at least for de Nuck and Futz Duo and with winds predicted to be quite favorable for a nice area we suspected would be holding nice variety of ducks,like teal.mottled ducks,greys,possible ring necks and maybe some widgeons and mallards(not counting whistling ducks),we decided we had a hunt or two left in de ole bodies and from de get-go,seemed like we zagged when we shoulda zagged,finding ourselves pretty squarely on dat proverbial'X' duck hunters so dearly strive for!!!When it was all said and done,we emerged with one doggone duck shy of a 2-man limit and our take was 5 greys,3 teal(two green wings and one blue wing),two mottled ducks,and one drake ringer,compliments of me and thought dat it was doggone scaup but quickly spotted two white bands encircling bill and he won't make dat mistake again!!!Heard a lotta chattering from variety of ducks and bout doggone time de Nuck and Futz Duo emerged with some quality AND quantity!!!He may be doing paddle-in tomorrow,Wifey and I headed up to Jackson,MS to visit with younger son,in MS College School of Law.Probably gonna hit local ducks maybe one,two more times,then take Wifey to de Trestles(might scope out Bass Pro in Pearl as dey may have dat Fin-S Shaker,Limetreuse,and possibly may have fine lead heads with incredible anchor system and angled shape plus eyes on each side-may find Do-It mold dat makes jig heads close to those).Had awesome time,shot hunt pics to plenty of my Duck Mafia and can't wait to hit few more ducks,if winds and water levels allow.Love to hit Honey Island for woodies but dat most likely AINT gonna happen with Pearl at 17.0 ft and climbing.Did not hear lotta shooting by us,guess sub-par duck season gotta lot to do with dat!!!Doggone Internet out at home but I-Phone Hot Spot does OK!!!
