    95 parties and we were 80 in line. Went to the bay and didn't see squat except for a few early buzzers.

    Slammer, I noticed you are from Holly. Me too. You do any hunting around our parts? Not asking where, just if. Maybe I've run into you before.

    Wow still that many...

    Hunted Geiger rd today lots of trailers in the lot busy place
    didn't see a whole lot. Not really a ton of shooting either. I had shots on two pairs that came by. Saw a single and triple while heading in but came home empty

    ended up swamping the boat pulling dekes so I had a good old time bailing and pulling gear not a soul came to lend a hand. Fortunately it was warm the water isn't too deep and I didn't venture too far from shore. Can't wait to get my wooden boat finished up that thing is gonna be sweet.


    So where's all the birds at?

    Hunted there this AM. Got an OK draw all things considered, but came home with just 1 mallard for the 3 of us. Huge flocks pouring into refuge before daylight as usual - almost seemed like more than usual, but the shooting just never picked up. Had over 20 mallards in the blocks just before shooting time, but they left with about 5 minutes to spare and never saw more than a group of 3-4 after that. Figured with the strong wind, they would be pushed in off the bay and not sitting around too much, but not the case today!

    Also, not sure the party count for the pm draw, but all the tags were turned when we checked back in.

    You know I have never hunted ducks around here and I don't know why. I guess I don't know enough about the area and usually couple ducks, deer and grouse/woodcock every weekend so I head a bit north. There is a lot of shooting out here at first light on the weekends, field hunters I am guessing. I would love to hear about your experience if you want to PM me.

    Take care.

    Hunted Wild Foul Bay on the 17th. Only one green wing teal. One flock of blue bills circled once.

    1st in the Draw Saturday AM out of 95 parties (Still in disbelief). We managed 6 mallards - 5 drakes (one band), 1 hen. Suprisingly most of the drakes were full color. Not too much shooting going on and not many groups working the fields. All our ducks were singles or pairs. Decent water and good crops and cover this year.
