Weather Cooperating for Duck Hunters

Hunted the grasslands yesterday. Arrived at 10:30 AM and departed the blind about 3 PM with a nice limit of ducks (2 pintail, 4 g-w teal, 1 widgeon).

Sprig worked well at midday, but it took while to finish out with greenwings. Although hunting has been consistently pretty good, this was the first time this year that I bagged a seven-bird limit.

Sixteen of the twenty hunters that signed out had gone home with limits. The cold snap probably had a lot to do with it and cold temperatures will continue for a while so this is a great opportunity to bag some ducks. I’m hoping to finally get some mallard action in the Delta next weekend.
