    We managed 1 today, neighbors on each side managed 2 or 3 each as well. Very slow going, with some seriously stale birds. Ducks are pretty call/decoy shy as well. MMS_IMG_TEMP_1510413010643.jpg

    Was thinking trying for ducks tomorrow night after the draw hunters leave. We'll see if the weather gets crappy enough but yes I can attest to the fact that the ducks there have been very decoy shy as of late.

    That's quite the Todd farm hunt! Ducks did NOT want to play last night. Had a few lookers but nothing serious. Saw very few geese. Oh well, guess you can't shoot em on the couch

    Typical for this time of year. Last year didn't get hot until mid December and we had the highest kill numbers since 2009 on the day after Christmas. I believe our group shot 7 that day. Right now not enough birds, and the ones there are edumacated. I likely won't hunt the draw until there's snow on the ground and half the idiots stay in bed.

    Managed to scratch out another one today, only 1 side of the refuge getting any bird action from what we can tell. Count went from 2500 Geese last week to 4500 today.
