    Private land is the name of the game for opener then scouting dictates where I need to hunt public or not.

    Well opening day is hit or miss for geese or ducks. You could scout until you can't scout no more and someone will bump or burn the roost. Either way I'll be out there with the pup, my fiancée, best friend, little brother. Down here has been more and more of a joke the past few years.

    Zone 2 is my favorite opener. We have a spot that has always been good to us. Shoot ducks in the AM and chase salmon in the PM. Fin-N-Feather week/weekend.

    I hunt the opener just because it is duck season and I can. I don't worry too much about the harvest numbers or getting the best spot, just getting out that first day. The hunter numbers here go down significantly after the opener.

    Last year was the first duck opener I hunted on public land in a while. The early shooting is getting old but nothing beats sitting in the duck blind for a sunrise.
