    Wind was so strong that the gun shots couldn't be heard. lol

    Work is so busy these days, that I don't have time to visit and post. Saturday we drew 2nd in the morning and took my first choice. Birds didn't cooperate at all. Shot 2 geese. Went back out standby in the afternoon and managed 3 mallards, and proceeded to watch the birds be uncooperative. Had very low hopes for yesterday based on bird behavior over the weekend and what I saw scouting Monday night. Gave it a whirl anyways. Drew 1st, but had to pick second due to the use of a golden ticket. Still got the 1 spot I wanted. Like I said, I didn't have high hopes and the hunt had all the makings of a not fun waste water adventure. Stale birds, deep ridge tilled corn and very high winds. Well, it turned out amazing. We were covered in birds. Buddy and I shot 16 birds total. 12 ducks and 4 geese. Got 8 mallards, 3 black ducks and a gadwall to round out 2 full limits of ducks. This was my last trip to the waste water for the year and we ended it on a high note.

    Well done g-man! Surprised the decoys didn't end up a zone or two over. Started and ended the year with a bang.

    Enjoy your time in the sun with the fam.:)

    If it was more solo hunter friendly, going to try the farm instead

    There will plenty of spots open on Saturday and I’m sure there won’t be 90 parties in the draw, so there will a spot you can take even as a single hunter. I hunted solo there for a number of years and plenty of people here can attest to the birds I brought in during those years. And that was when there were more people hunting there. Just depends on how much work your willing to put in.

    I haven’t been in a year but hunted regularly solo for years with good success. Might not get the best field but there’s always a hidden gem it seems

    Unfortunately won’t have the time. Work and school has eaten up most of my season. Didn’t turn out to be the year I hoped it would be, but I think I still got a river hunt or two in me before Sunday.

    Anyone got any updates on the Wastewater for this coming weekend? Was considering going out there and doing a scout on Friday but didn't know if it was freezing up and how many birds are left.
