This year is starting off much better than last year in my observation. Ducks are much more plentiful now than last year at this time. A good cold snap should bring more. Geese are extremely plentiful. Most of my hunting has been jump shooting wood ducks and when I get the lead correct I have had good results. I have had shooting every day out. Yesterday Scott and I had two flocks of geese set in to our decoys and we both shot a limit. Geese were moving throughout the day. Hunting pressure has been light as we have only heard a few distant shots each day.

well went out with son this morning and fog didntlift till almost 9 am ughhh, and to make matters worse didnt see a thing or even hear a honk at all. saw few ducks flying around and 9 in bog behind us. went for a drive after to see if worth going out tomorrow and checked all the spots and no gees to be seen or found at all and not a lot of ducks either. on the bright side a farmer has started cutting his corn though so that might be good for next weekand youth hunt not sure yet have 2 places picked out now as is see what happens on sat first. well good luck to all and see u soon.

Observed a fair number of ducks while out crow hunting this weekend. A good number of mallards were using a pond near our hunting location. i suspect they are bein fed. Geese are bunching up and on the move in the area. Typical for this time of year they spend the day at Tuttle’s Red Barn in Dover and fly to and from the evening roost with determined regularity. I am seeing enough ducks moving to be much more hopeful about what the regular season will bring this year.

well took day off because of the weather and decided to give it a go. set up in a field that has ahd geese in it this yr and not one that had big flocks but might not have gotten the hunting pressure that im sure another filed did this past opeing day and weekand. fog rolled in around 630 or so heard a few geese in a bog and had 3 fly in but flared on me layout blind still to new i believe. then pushed one goose out of a bog thats it. no hunters and no shots, went for a drive and saw a small flock on side of road in a fresh cut ahy field of course it is posted they must be able to read. other than that nothing like usuall the get educated to fast fromt he pressure and doesnt take them long to change thier habits. oh well thats why it is called hunting. going to loudon this weekand so no hunting till next weekand then get ready for youth weekand and regular season, i will say we need some rain water is getting low the bog behind me was real low can walk out there quit a ways. if it stays as is ducks will be on the river and in bogs that ahve water thats for sure. good luck to all and be good and good luck see ya later.

I got out on the early goose opener bright and early only to be totally skunked. No geese, no other hunters, only a lonely crow and a curious raven.

I’m not sure where the local birds are hanging out and that’s what I get for not scouting!
