Wind and rain this morning but worth the trip 8 mallards and a black total for my partner and I.Yesterday we took his 8yr old son with us when he got home from school and got 1 mallard and the boy had a good time.I have started to see some mergs and buffles but don’t think all the blacks are here yet,just my observation of the area.Larry

I went up for opening day last Saturday..too early for the big ducks, but lots of divers on the lake, N.Y. side. Lots of shooting all morning, maybe ’cause it was the first saturday opening on a long holiday weekend, (Columbus Day), got some mallards, but the best shooting was inland a short way on teal.Some of the knowledgeable hunters did really well on teal in the waterways on the Vt. side.

I just spent some time reading the past Field Reports and I realized that I am the only one reporting.

Is there anybody out there?

Well there goes another season. Screaming Teal and I hit the marsh and harvested two Blakies. One was a cripple from another hunter but who knows when it was hit because there was no one else in the marsh with us today.
On the Sound was another story as we heard gun play all day long as everyone has flocking to the Creek for closing day.
See you again next year.

Our scouting paid of again as we set up ready for the morning flights of geese. Sgt Scup Jr made a cameo appearance and oh what a treat that was for me and the the “H” (H now stands for Hen). It took all of Sarge’s will power not to send his customary volley of three at the first high fliers that came in a dawn. Patients being a virtue we waited for the geese in front of us to get ready for their morning constitutional. When they did the carnage was impressive as four of the Honkers came down in a blaze a glory.

Patients though is a fleeting virtue as illustrated by my trip up the river with the good Sergeant, even though I carried the canoe (without the slightest complaint) the trigger happy Traffic Cop felt compelled to shoot his and my limit of Blakies (and a merry Christmas to your Good Lady as well).

I told the Hen that next time he sees him road side chase him up the curb a bit

Made two trips to the marsh were we came upon 200 ducks and another 100 geese.Took a blakie and headed home.
Lots of birds here this time of year.

Just the way we like it , cold inland so the ducks feel the need to hit the open water of LIS.
Good flights of Blacks and Mallards at first light .Then the usual stragglers the rest of the morning.
We made a lot of noise and went through a box of shells and came back with a little bit of everything.

Seems the snow we had in the past couple of days really jump started the action. Duck were around and willing to commit if guys would let them, and the geese that wanted to come in did. We ended up with a pair of geese and a pair of BDs before we darn near got stuck with the out going tide.
