I’ve been seeing a lot of wood ducks in the last couple weeks while I was beaver trapping. I flushed a pair of them yesterday that were practically sitting on top of a trap. I run heavy pan tension and that pretty much eliminates non target catches.
You are correct!! The Sandies have been here for years. I can't remember for sure but my son and I found them on opening day 15 years ago at least near the Mercer line. I do see them every year now. There is a larger flock at PYMATUNING.
