This morning was a bust, 4 guys 4 ducks, a lot of high groups of mallards. this years water conditions, first high then low, made submergant vegitation hard to find. No food, ducks rest and move on, they arn't bunching up waiting for ice. anyhow better than working, walked in this evening and watched a couple hundred teal at the opposite end of the lake, then a surface drive jumped a log or dam and scattered them all. Teal and wood ducks circling back into the lake. Shot one at a time out of the flocks to keep it simple for the pup. not to mention missing some. Anyway I ate duck for supper and am full, Herman did good enough that tomorrow I am not holding off on multiples. If I could just get him to stop whining and figiting, thats what I get for having a high strung german shorthair for a duck dog. He is sleeping on the couch. Good day for all.
