  • The four of us got 2 spoonies, 1 pintail and 1 teal. The pond has sticky mud and it is a workout when you pull the duck cart tub or walk across the pond for a duck.

  • Another shutout, didnt fire a shot. Found that the area that we pull off the gravel road to park in is dirt, so when it gets good and wet, good luck trying to park!

  • My dog (Jax)found the widgeon the prior hunters winged … so I don’t get credit for this one; clear afternoon very little wind; no action til 4; then three flights provided opportunity ….

  • It was real foggy and the birds were low for the first 2 hours. We shot teal, gadwall and pintale. After the fog lifted all the birds were at least 100 yards up. All in all it was a good hunt.

  • There will be lots of geese out there for sure. I put out 2 dozen specs. Stan set out a large white bag of specs that i think should go out there. I am willing to do the work it getting them set out. I will also offer some quick lessons in spec calling if you do not have that skill or call in your arsonal. thankks

  • Ducks were flying but a little high. Hunters from the other club (blind just north of our blind) parked 2 four wheelers directly across from our b;ind on the check between our two ponds. This caused the ducks and geese to flair off as they approached our blind. I talked to the hunters as they were leaving and they apologized and said they didn’t know where our blind was until after daylight. The said they would talk to the rest of their club and tell them to park on the east side levy road down by pond 3. If it happens again, don’t be shy about complaining.

  • 4 spoonies, 1 teal . The guys in n the blind North of us got about 4 ducks. They parked their transportation to the blind off to the side, which is better for us, instead of on the opposite side of our pond.

  • 11/27/20, am. Saw one duck before shoot time, then it was passing geese rest of morning.

    About half of the water remains compared to last week. Most of decoys are sitting in cuttings lift over from harvest. Hope we get some rain soon.

  • Went out with my Jr for a couple hours this afternoon. Partly cloudy. Did not even see a duck at any distance. A few geese in the area but that’s it. Made some bundles and brushed up a little bit the blind will need a lot more stakes and brush or it will be a mud pit quickly when the rain comes.

    2Other10605022020-12-1210609188 - 1027016
  • The ducks finally got there and there was a good duck push for 1 hour 30 minutes. I should have got more there were lots of opportunities.

  • Got there 11:00 saw a few ducks flying as fog/ rain was pretty much lifted. Other blind in morning probably got at least 3-4 ducks.. Nothing flying once it cleared up. Nice warm afternoon. Pulled almost 2 dozen sinkers out of the spread a few where recently shot full of holes. Don’t shoot into the decoys at cripples! Get you’re ass out of the blind and go get your duck or shoot it when it clears the decoys. Also at least a box of empties black 3″ Kent and Gold 3″ heavy shot shells all around the blind. I didn’t clean those up I will contact that last hunters who shot birds as I spent time spreading decoys out and picking up sinker’s.

  • 12-18-20, shot drake and hen pintail. Decent amount of birds passing up high, few interested in decoys. Missed a couple opportunities.

    Looked like north blind got 2-3 ducks and one snow.

    If heading out, take some grass, the blind needs some maintenance.

    22Pintail10628362020-12-1810628361000029 - 1028838
  • Haven’t fired a shot of this blind all season. Tons of high flying geese all around the area with multiple grinds in the fields east and west of the blind. I’ve been out here numerous times and have yet to even see a duck. Talked to a few guys that hunt the other blinds in the area and they’ve indicated the shooting quality has continued to decline year over year. Such a bummer.

    1Other10628932020-12-1910608258 - 1026923
  • no wind, no ducks. Got two shots off at one group of ducks. Downed one however she picked up and flew off while trying to retrieve her. One other group circled but did not commit. Lots of geese flying high just out of range. The blind is in good shape, lots if grass coverage on the check. I did pick up some beer cans left behind at the parking lot. looks like they’ve been there a while. Just a reminder, Specks will be off limits in this blind starting Dec 21st. There are lots of them in the area and this blind is just inside the closure boundary.

  • Did not fire a shot, no ducks . On another note, I would like to hunt Cherokee Slough some time, but it seems Bubba Harris, his crew and Max Hardy have it sewed up pretty every shoot day. Come on guys, give somebody else a chance to get some shooting since that seems to be the only blind that is working!

  • lots activity from 30 min prior to shoot time to 30 minutes past shoot time then it got quiet. There’s definitely more ducks in the area than earlier in the season. The rain died down and the wind went away otherwise I think there would have been plenty of ducks. I could have had more ducks but wasn’t shooting my best. The geese are still around but grinding hard to the southwest and passing over high as usual. A few lower flying groups but nothing in range. The ground around the blind is pretty matted down. Looks like someone laid some straw down which helps but still getting pretty bare.

  • Today we took William Berseth a 14 year old boy from our church. Whoa can this kid shoot. He took a single widgeon this morning totally committed our mojo. 1 Shot 1 kill. We had 2 spoonies come in 1 shot 1 kill and we cleaned up the other bird. a group of roughly 12 snows flying low over the blind and he shot 1 stone dead and we managed to get 2 more. Then another group of spoonies came in and this time 3 shots 1 down. Take a boy hunting and he will feed his family for life. Great job today William.

  • Got to guide 2 juniors and their father. It was their first time hunting waterfowl and boy were they in for a surprise. 5 minutes after shoot time 3 spoonies flew in and buzzed the new hunters, needless to say they were not ready. Sadly that was the only chance for the rest of the morning, all geese were high and in large groups. No wind to push them down.

  • 5 widgeon. Two singles and one group worked right in. Not many ducks flying around. Wind kicked up 10-15mph around 10, but still no ducks. The dog retrieved all the birds and empty shells. Blind to the north and south did not fire a shot. The Southern side of the blind is low on water. Geese were all high. Happy new year!

  • Reporting for Brian, Dale and I. A fair amount of ducks flying early, but stayed out of range. Brian killed sole Widgeon. We had about 10 Teal land in deeks of course we weren’t ready and missed all….funny how that happens. Wind 10mph and partly cloudy.

  • 1-3-21, Jason dO & JA, we shot two drake pintail, missed a few spoonies. Lots of Pintail flying, had group of 20 or so land just outside of decoys but had already shot ours so we sat and watched them hoping they would bring in more birds. No such luck.

    22Pintail10605402021-01-03106054023 - 1026638
  • The zeroes today are not the blind’s fault. Lots of action from shoot time until about 9. Then, a few strays. Let’s face it gentlemen, I have an eye for something other than hitting birds . . . Happy New Year!

  • Mr. Jones and me went a hunting. Nothing happened until about 10:30 (after Mr. Jones left) and a decent breeze came up. I got a Teal and a Widgeon. should have shot a double on the widgeon there were so many . . .

  • Big wind and rain, but just a lot of Sprig. One hunter no show- family emergency. 3 bull sprig and many more sailing over at 20 yds. 1 hen mallard and a wigeon. Missed shooting at a couple birds. Only saw 4 spoons and a few wigeon, but a ton of sprig. Post for Jim B, Tim C. and Ken Malone.

    53Pintail10605412021-01-04106054123 - 1026639
  • Finally some numbers ducks of ducks flying here today in the storm-only problem is that most of them were Sprig, and most were flying high, despite the weather. We got a few though. We got a guest his first duck ever-a bull sprig. Quite a few geese in the area, most traveling between grinds, but a few smaller groups seemed like they wanted to play but the spread was wrong-someone divided the snows in half between north and south-we have too few snows already to do that, but the rain kept us too pinned down to change mid-hunt.

    312Pintail10608412021-01-0410608418 - 1026939
  • Had a great time with Jim and Tim
    Also had a hen mallard 3 pintails
    And wigeon total of 5
    Wish they would change the law on pintails
    Could have had limits

  • Weather pretty nice on a little fog. No ducks really flying- nothing close. Some geese high. Rearranged decoys and spread out – they where really clumped up. Blind need major brush up.

  • Pintail, pintail, pintail, all over, a few widgeon mixed in but unable to shoot them because they were in the middle of the pintail.

    22Pintail10605452021-01-08106054523 - 1026643
  • Not a bad day if I could shoot it would of been an easy limit of birds. 2 teal 1 mallard 1 pintail 1 wig. Have a blessed weekend!!

  • Many ducks on ponds before shoot time. Light north wind 5 -15mph. Killed bull Sprig, 1 Teal and lost Mallard drake in brush near blind.. Fair amount of ducks early and had enough shot opportunities for limit. Large goose grind west of blind. Our blind looks great and barely used.

  • Thought my harvest report reported but it didn’t from Friday should of had a single man limit in 45 min if I could shoot. Not bad a decent amount of birds flying…

    322Mallard10626652021-01-1010626651000035 - 1028764
  • Lots of spoons around the area. Snows and specks are flying over frequently en masse but nowhere near low enough for a clean shot.

    11Spoonie10628592021-01-1010628591000029 - 1028861
  • Warm afternoon in the blind. Huge grind of geese 2 ponds over to the west. Later in the afternoon I got a few ducks flying by – shot a widgeon and a pin.

  • Mr Greenhead and a hen. 1 nice looking sprig. 2 snows. Could of taken more but I had A new hunter hunter out and let him do almost all of the shooting.
    These late season birds seem really educated. Very decoy and call shy. Hard to get them within an ethical shooting distance.

    324Pintail10608112021-01-1210622941000035 - 1028392

    12Mallard10628622021-01-1310628621000029 - 1028864
  • Clear and small SW wind. Not many ducks, but had a few work. Harvest a wigeon and pintail. Birds seem call shy so dont call. Lots of geese in the area and played with a couple specks but couldn’t get them low enough to shoot. Bring some full body decoys and speck hunters could probably do okay.

    21Widgeon10622952021-01-1310622951000035 - 1028393
  • Socked in with fog. Some ducks have been moving closer from the west, across the road to the south, as they feed off the fields over there, as they do every year. They’re late this year but might get some soon.

    1Other10608512021-01-1410608518 - 1026949
  • No ducks at all. Geese were high. I heard the ducks landing in the pond when at the car after it was dark.

  • Had the afternoon reserved but found out when we got there that one of us (me) forgot to load the chest waders. No sense in going out when we wouldn’t have been able to get any ducks we shot because none of us wanted to wade to pick us ducks! Oh well…lesson learned.

    2Other10629622021-01-1610629621000029 - 1028965
  • Managed to get a shot off at a pack of wayward snows and took one down. Absolutely zero ducks in the area. There are a lot of high flying geese bouncing back and forth across the road but that’s about it. Easy drive and convenient location keep me coming back but this blind has not seen much action this season. Spoke to one of the guys who has the blind just north east of ours and he said they’ve shot less than 30 birds total all season so it’s not just us (thankfully, I guess).

    12Other10628932021-01-1810608558 - 1026953
  • Decent N wind picked up right around shoot time.. Lots of pintail and teal on the natural club to our west. Every time they would shoot over there it would kick some groups up and a few would break my way. Once they presumably finished their limits and left, the flight died off.

    51Teal10628662021-01-1710628661000029 - 1028868

  • Lots of Sprig around. a few teal, a few spoons. The sprig are a little decoy shy for some reason-maybe they’ve been hanging in the area for a bit. If I were to hunt it again, I’d take all the duck decoys on whatever corner is most downwind, most likely SE and throw them all over to the west with the others and create a big open side for them to come into.

    32Pintail10606552021-01-18106065522 - 1026753
  • Reporting for myself, John and Jason. 3 pintail. That was all that was flying strong north wind, nothing but pintail.

  • Reporting for Brian and myself, nothing but Pintail, missed a few early Spoonies and Teal, had a flock of about 300 Pintail come in and land just outside the decoys and we had live decoys for about an hour and a half, but all that came in were Pintail and Specks, of course all of them were in easy range, oh well!

  • JimB and I had 30+ mph north wind this morning. Fair amount of ducks first hour and we struggled connecting in wind. Killed 1 bull sprig, 2 Widgeon and 1 snow goose….lost a second snow goose cripple across pond.

  • Got into the snows a little bit this afternoon including a blue goose! Specks refused to finish. Only saw a few ducks flying high, had one group of sprig fly in shooting range but too clumped together to risk the shot. Leave the wind duck at home!

  • The epic hunt you dream about!!! 40-50+ northeast gale!!! Pintails and tailgater widgeon flights for hours! A couple of mallards dropped in and bagged the greenhead! Then 2 snows made the wrong choice to glide over our blind and they went nighty night!!! God is good, great shoot in a great setting!!

  • Pelger blind has no water. Great conditions for goose hunting. Our entire field was covered in geese when I got there and they merely moved over to field next to ours. I did get 1 Snow goose and left at 8:30am.
