Brother Bob and I took a little drive to see about the local duck population and we found a pretty good site.  I have not been hunting ducks yet this year but it is getting nigh on to time to get the boots muddy and give it a try.

They are filling the dikes at the Bear River Bird Refuge pretty fast right now and I assume they are pouring the entire flow from the river into each of the units one at a time.  I don’t know because we didn’t drive out that far.

What we did see however was some good news.  Lots of ducks!  Not a lot of water but lots of ducks.  How long they will stick around remains to be seen, but I think with another good storm we might just see some great hunting.

With an all day venture into the swamp I think a person could fill up a limit, but it would take all day, unless of course you had a boat like an airboat that could skim across the really shallow waters we have right now.  Other than that is will require a lot of walking.

Having not gone hunting since the last day of the muzz deer hunt I’m getting the bug to go hunt something even if it’s wrong.  Coyote, ducks, geese, rabbits…just about anything that has a season going right now.

And it looks like boat hunting is out for this season and it’s probably a good thing too.  Check out this video

They are getting smarter!
