Was able to get in on a duck hunt before everything froze over. This was a few weeks ago.
It was super cold and the water was just a thin layer of ice, and so we walked out to set up some decoys. Broke up the ice in the process and made ourselves a nice open water area. Made it look cozy to the passing ducks and before we knew it, they were all over!
We were able to get a couple Green heads and Mergansers and Gadwalls. All in all a cold slushee day but we were able to get into some ducks, the dog got to put in work, and we were done by noon. Great Day
I hope to get out a few more times if we can find some open water, then there's always making open water! That's always fun!!!
If not for ducks, we have till February to chase chukar, so why not, maybe my next post will be about a chukar hunt or 2.
