    Did something today I have Never did my entire life and that's Skip the opener of Rifle Season to Try Duck hunting again and even though the Ducks weren't plentiful, Still had alot of Fun!!! I had promised my Catfishing Buddy and His Son that I would be there this morning so I removed the Scope from my Turkey Auto and off I went. We Had Ducks everywhere before legal light but they didn't hang around long after but did manage to Take 4 Wood Ducks and had 2 others go down in timber that we couldn't locate. Was Very Cold early but like the Duck Action...The Cold didn't last long either lol...Congrats Limbhanger on your morning while I'm at it!!!

    SAY WHAT???
    Is Ole Gobblintom going to change his posting name to Quackingduck? You are going to make a lot of gobblers happy when you convert to just duck hunting,lol. I bet your're practicing on ducks so you can knock down those fly off gobblers,huh?
    Glad you had a good day duck hunting.

I'll take you guys a Video and show ya..It's really something to see and All wild..My buddy said he goes by how many Ducks sit on this pond to determine what kind of season it's going to be...I know those canvas backs are beautiful!!!!!!!!!

    Nice Pond
    Wish my grandmas pond beside my house had ducks on it like this pond does GT. Thats a bunch of ducks man. Bet it gets covered up good when extreme cold weather gets here. I know a pond not far from my house that holds ducks like this one does. People hunt it though.

    Yeah The colder it gets the more Ducks come lol...We talked to the guy and he said he doesn't have a clue as to why they love this area...As you can tell, it's right beside a public Road and he doesn't feed them or anything!!! I'll take a better video when it's covered...It's something to see lol My Camera zoom sucks on my little Camera but it looked like a little bit of everything out there lol

    Mixed Bag
    Most definitely limbhanger sounds Great and my buddy said we could hunt here also if you wanted to come...It's a secluded pond off of the lake..Last year late in the season they got a 4 person limit in 10 minutes lol That's what I'm waiting on lol

    Redneck, The guys doesn't hunt but is super nice...He asked us not to park beside the road but rather use driveway to watch the ducks lol He told us that Ducks Unlimited came and took video and pictures a few years ago and he thought that was cool...He just doesn't know why they chose this pond in his yard lol...The Ducks are still spooky as you can tell when I got out of the truck but man...They love this area lol
