    Just looked at the 25 day forcast for where we hunt in Arkansas and the lowest day time hi is 47 degrees. May cancel my 3 day trip and wait a bit longer. Report I got today was good water good food but no ducks and no geese. On a side note looked at extended forcast for ND and it showed freeze starting on 22nd and staying frozen.

    Seems like every year Ducks come in the week as Duck season is about to close. I would be glad to give up season opening on Thanksgiving and those 4 days after to add it to the last of January. When the Ducks are here.

    For the last 10 years or so it does seem like we have a good number fo ducks here from around the 25th of October. I would like to have a 3 or 4 day split around Halloween. It never fails we have a cold snap just before the t day opener and we loose a lot of those early ducks

    SLOW, we need some cold weather bad, on another note had a group of 10 ring necks land in the decoys while I was getting the bluebill with the boat and my buddies managed to knock down 0

    I ran an area today where any other year would probably see 200 birds ran close to a tank of fuel to see less than 20 birds.

    The father-in-law and I knocked down some real eaters this weekend. We take what we can get in the east, especially on public water. Most of what was in range died.

    We came home from Saturday night after hunting all day Friday/Saturday. Birds were extremely call shy and wouldn't finish. The ones that worked us, we didn't call any, and had to run mojos. Then when they started working, they wouldn't finish. Really frustrating. We tried lots of things with no success. Seen lots of ducks tho.

    Yall try shutting the mojos off once they started working?

    That's a groundforce blind shoved into the dog box on the pit. The box was pretty big and I couldn't get it covered like I wanted. So I just shoved his blind in there and covered it with fast grass.

    We tried shutting them off and on. Didn't help. I'm thinking about investing in some of those flocka flickers. Me personally, I hate any type of spinning wing decoy. They just wouldn't look without them on though.

    Last year the birds got where they didn't like our pulsators pulled all the tubes off them where they were just making ripples gave the duck butts alot more motion also made a world of difference. Anyone had any experience with the so called cloudy day mojo wings?

    Years ago (when I still used mojos, before my nuts dropped, and I learned how to call) I would slip panty hose over the wings on gray days.
