I think the erratic weather isn’t helping us. When we finally get the winds we need they come on strong and hard. I think a lot of birds just fly right through. In years past when we have steadier winds and weather the hunting has always been better. Where I’m at you won’t see mallards hitting corn until the shallows freeze up and we get a little snow. Only once in my life have I seen or shot birds around here without those conditions. Mother Nature is screwing us.
