Over the past two days we’ve experienced light rain most of the hunting hours, which in return has kept our duck flights down. Most all groups are picking up limits of redheads, with an occasional blue bill to compliment straps. But, the pintails are slowly returning after the heavy rains throughout the weekend.
This season has been one for the record books for large numbers redhead flights. It’s been somewhat “Automatic” for our guests to shoot out on their redheads, which is only 2 per day.
Widgeon, teal, gads, and other puddle ducks have been good when the perfect weather is upon us. We’re not seeing the normal amounts of puddle ducks we’ve experienced in past seasons. With one cold front after another, we’re starting to have some solid numbers of widgeons. Just the other day we had a group in from Buffalo, NY, their 11th season at Bay Flats. With their guide, they finished with 18 ducks, and a large part of their limits were widgeon. So, things are looking better!
We’re into the last two weeks of our duck season, I hope our guests will get in a lot of gunning. If the weather stays cold, I think well have a great close to another busy and fun duck season.
Here are some highlight photos from past hunts. Enjoy!
