After our cold snap a few weeks back a lot of ducks got pushed out of the smaller ponds as they froze over. Ducks have been roosting on large open water and feeding heavily in corn. Afternoon duck flights have been very large and more consistent than the morning flights. Geese have been flying early, some as early as sunrise. Goose numbers are high in most areas, and we should continue to see duck and goose numbers increase as the weather deteriorates. Don’t be scared of the cold, dress in layers with quality Gore-Tex such as the Sitka Pantanal Parka and bibs as your final wind and waterproof layer. If you area having problems harvesting birds on public land our waterfowl 101 school consists of a 3 hour evening classroom session followed by a half day hunt the following day.
