We saw lots of birds of all flavors before shooting hours, and the action was reasonably steady throughout the morning. Lots of shooting on the private marshes, and I have to believe we did as well as anyone on the public marsh. We managed 6 teal, including 1 GWT. Mid-morning a small flock of geese locked in on my big spread of 2 goose dekes and the boys both doubled as I "watched". Im not really that generous, I just couldn't shoot back over their heads...but no matter, 4 geese was enough weight for the trek back to the truck!
Roux was a workhorse, as always, making it just look easy. Im blessed to have such a great hunting partner.

Thanks for an excellent morning, Gentelmen!
No limits by any means, but for public land in a state with precious few ducks, it was a banner day. Many thanks to these fine young men for inviting an Old Man and a Brown Dog for a most memorable morning in the marsh! Get out there and enjoy it, OUR time is finally here!!! Getducks!
Until next time,
Brown is Beautiful
