Date hunted 12-5-20:

We had a good group of people leave the camp for duck hunting Saturday morning. Total of nine guys headed out on a good weather duck hunting morning. Real nice breeze out of the north, 46 degrees and water slightly below normal.

Our past trend continues with many dosgris in our area with the occasional grey duck, wigeon, redhead, teal, bufflehead or pintail. With dosgris being plentiful we easily shoot 2 each of those then it is a matter of waiting it out for the other species of ducks to come. It makes for interesting hunts because we never know what the wildcards are going to be. On Saturday hunting with Zeke two wigeon passed over our head heading out and I hit them on the duck call and they made a U turn coming our way. Just as you would draw up the play the wigeon made slight right turn over the decoys and we both shot once, he got his and I got mine.

Nice to have some younger people at the camp duck hunting. If they come, they usually love it. My son had two friends and another member had his grandson.

Four of us hunted two separate blinds. Similar conditions to Saturday with similar results. We will be back at it December 19 for hopefully more action.

Mandevillian,

Have not tried the smoked duck as you describe. Was nice shooting the wigeon as my report states we never know what will be coming our way. \r\n\r\nGood luck with the hunting..
