Just a few from this season, literally.

Recommended Posts

Been a very slow, lower than the normal low #'s birds seen this season atleast for me and everyone else I've talked to.  Ponds that normally produce havent this year and on good cold front / post cold front days that we'd expect to see birds around have been blanked.  Seeing a few birds here and there but no real #'s.  What few birds I have seen have been mallards and hooded megansers and a few GWT.  Surprised I havent seen a single gadwall this season and that's what I usually see the the majority of.  Thankful for the few birds I have harvested this season and just being able to go.

It has been a really weird year. I think that perhaps the birds are shifting their migration routes and we aren’t seeing them in traditional locations. 🤷‍♂️

We had a mixed bag this year. Better than last year but...just when we thought it was gonna break loose and meet our expectations (Right after Christmas) it

shut down to an occasional merganser or nothing.  Best outing since then was these 3 and it took 3 of us to take them in 3 hours! What is there...only eleven

days left?....At least we're not froze out yet!

Great pics guys!

Just didn't get cold enough North of here for a good push. Up until this weekend there was still open water in Nebraska and Iowa..I mean come on. Of course some birds just go based on the photoperiod, but I think December 29th was the only big migration day this year--and that was mediocre at best. I saw probably 5k birds, all high-fliers, that day. Last year it was November 18th--and I saw probably 30k birds flying. Hell, it was 55 on January 5th where I was hunting. Last year it was all locked up. That should explain everything. Still had a good season but I think people are looking way too much into it.
