Late Morning Duck Hunt Report


We decided to let the rain pass before going out into the marsh this morning. We set up around 10:00am with water dropping fast, overcast skies and light breeze.

Early in the hunt we saw three mottled ducks poking along and decided to hit them with a duck call. Most times it does not work but this time it did and they started to come at us. We let the come and they saw the decoys and worked perfectly going across the pond right to left. We knocked all three down. One was a cripple and the dog went into the lilies and pulled it out. Real good stuff. Video of the dog working will be coming.

Jefferson retrieved all the ducks. Now we are getting spoiled.

Hunted until 12:30. Ended up with 11 ducks for the hunt. A good late morning duck hunt.
Awesome hunt. That dog looks special!
DD,Nice haul,indeed and coulda used ya doggie yesterday!!Been very tough sledding for us with little,other than some teal and a whopping one grey duck to show for six efforts!!Yesterday,dropped fine mottled duck,the only duck anywhere close enough to shoot and immediately went to about where he crash-landed(did dat helicopter manuever with head down and wing broken)and it made a thud crashing onto marsh.Tried twice to locate but no go!!Hope to cash in on the very few opportunities we have been given.Should be fishing/deer hunting vs chasing non-existent ducks,at least for us!!

This photo is so beautiful that it makes me miss my pets. Awesome hunt. This puppy looks great! Cheers, a best concrete company in Lewisville
