Had a great weekend hunting ducks with a couple of friends from Modesto. Saturday was a bit cold, and we had to break ice off the pond several times. We did get to see a very nice sunrise though.
At first light there were birds all over us. We got a few right off the bat, and then, like a light switch being turned off, all the birds disappeared. About 10:30AM they started filtering into our pond and we did very well. We ended up with our limits of ducks...21 total...and one lone honker.
No, we didn't kill the birds with the axe, it was there to help us break the ice. Today was MUCH slower and we only killed six ducks total.
All in all, we had a great time sharing a couple hunts and all kinds of stories. I'm gonna sleep good tonight.
