They are flying way better. Went hunting Saturday morning. I had a teacher workshop to go to so I didn't bother with decoys and had to sit on the wrong side of the pond, so I saw plenty, shot none. When I got back later that morning, set the decoys out, and saw plenty of ringnecks, but waited patiently for the larger ducks to show and only got one widgeon out of the deal.
Sunday morning before church, 40+ ringnecks landed directly in front of me, but I want more than just ringnecks. 4 gadwalls landed across the pond, but when they swam closer, I jumped them and started shooting. Shot a ringneck and a gadwall, and lost another gadwall.
Was a GREAT weekend of duck hunting. We had issues on Saturday with a group too close to us and all the birds landing in there lap. Between the 4 of us we scraped together maybe 12 birds.
Today was a differant story. We had a steady flow of birds all morning. Took me a bit to get my game on but I was able to knock a few down. We ended up Gauge, Mike and I all with limits. I had never seen birds turn 180 and fall from the sky like rocks when called like they did today to Mike and gauges calling. It was a sight to see and I'm glad I got to experience it first hand.
