We had a great opener in the fog and rain. We quickly got a 5 man limit. Birds decoyed great. We had brought along some breakfast stuff so we sat there and had a couple flocks land in the decoys while we were eating. Seemed like there were a lot of birds around. Hopefully didn't educate too many. Hard to believe there is a shortage. How did others do?
We had a good one also. Killed a pile of Canadas - saw very few ducks however. Two very notable things about this hunt - 1 - killed a banded Canada that is a minimum of 17 years old. It was banded in N LAC RENAUDIN, Quebec on 7/31 2002 and it was hatched 2001 or earlier! Additionally, we harvested a beautiful Richardson's cackling goose.
