I got out this morning. I went to the crick, didn't see a duck. I thought everything was froze up, but on the way home I saw that's not the case. Oh well at least I got out. I did see a couple thousand geese and cacklers and snows.

I wasn't really complaining, just after last year I had shooting almost every time I went out. I thought my duck hunting skills had rounded the bend. This year has been very humbling. I gotta quit reading the duck count numbers, I can only imagine how had this would be during low duck cycles.

N8, don't put too much into the duck counts. Most of the ones you hear about are for the central and Mississippi flyways. To be honest, the Atlantic and Pacific flyways tend to stay VERY steady and rarely fluctuate much. Other than the AP geese in the mid 90's, not much changes from year to year with our major duck species, like mallards, blacks, woodies, etc. Just my opinion of course, but like some have said on here, when the "low duck" number years were here, and we only had a 3 bird, 30 day season, we saw a lot of ducks. Pretty much on par with now. Only difference I see is in the species that we get from that area. I used to never see Pintail or Wigeon back then, but do occasionally see them now.
