Todays duck hunters really did miss out, I recall the old timers in the 80's when I started saying the good days have past, didn't see the ducks they used to.

I can't even imagine that.

Don't get me wrong, we have some good years from time to time but nothing like it was.

A bad day was hunting past 8 am!!!!!

same with turkeys too beers

i agree. When they first started flooding the Tenn tom the hunting in Gainesville lake for several years was as good as any hunts I ever experienced in La.

The lack of ducks on Pickwick has been caused by multiple factors. I believe first and foremost it's because of commercialization of the sport. There are lots and lots of acres of food that is left and flooded north of us that short stop our ducks. Weather is another factor. I don't care how cold it gets, as long as a duck has open water and food, he ain't leaving. It takes ice and snow to cover the food before they will move. A duck also has a memory. He will travel the same routes and go back to the places where he knows the food and safety were available. Also for us on pickwick, there are not as many potholes and water available as there used to be. I used to kill a lot of mallards on the river that were holding on these potholes and small ponds where they were feeding and then coming back to the river to roost. My experience now is that when we have a big push of ducks, they may only stay a day or two and then move on. The only thing that will change our hunting here is for there to be a good snow pack all the way to southern Illinois. But I am am gonna stay after'em. I grew up huggin stumps in Decatur, hunting out of a blind in Swan Creek and hunting the river around 7 mile. It is disappointing.

This probly the strongest front so far, and as deep as it is going to push I would expect flocks of snows and specks to be lost all over Alabama in the morning.

I saw 2-300 Specks fly over our farm on Sand Mtn in Jackson County. Headed south ! The only time I've ever seen them before was in Illinois when we were deer hunting .This was Wed morning.

So what your telling me is that i need to go in late to work in the morning.
