Slow Duck Season with One Bright Moment

Reply
Hello all. New to this forum. Sharing for the first time. Like most of you, it was a slow season for me as well. I hunted Myrtle Grove area for teal season and first split with minimal to dismal results. I changed venues and hunted Hopedale area for second split for the remainder of the season. I will say that opening day of second split was phenomenal. Limited out on gray ducks, passing on dogris. Grays still decoying while picking up my dekes. All the gray ducks I took did appear to be young birds, save one, and all were drakes, which I found curious or just a coincidence. All hunts after that were marginal at best, taking 2-3 birds (divers mostly) each hunt with two scratch hunts as well. Happy hunting fellas, looking forward to next season!

PapaG,Nice rig ya got there!!Know a few folks dat hunted Hopedale with mixed results but they certainly fared way better than Bayoubob and I and my older son.Think older son had right idea,let dear old Dad bust his rump finding whatever ducks the NShore harbored and he has made just a few Second Split hunts with us getting a hand full of ducks on the few hunts he has made!!!We are diehards,even though mostly what we encounter have been MT skies with a few exceptions.We look forward to Teal Season and it appears that there is ZERO correlation between Teal Season and Regular Duck Season,unfortunately!!!
