Heading out in the am on the big water . Not expecting much but as it gets colder should get. Better. Best of luck to everyone heading out !

Slow opener. Not many woodies as last year opener. Manages to scratch out one drake mallard,2 drake woodies.
Saw maybe 50 woodies and 6 mallards and couple black ducks.
Anyone else see any decent numbers of birds ?

Birds are starting to leave the North Country we're seeing fewer numbers up here so they should start making their way down.

past Sunday saw fewer birds than opening day.. hunted a few miles south where numbers are usually greater the second week. Managed 2 woodies. Heard very few shots.    Hoping the push comes soon!!

last week and week before seemed to be the peak in numbers where I am.. this past weekend they seemed to have moved out..
