Yesterday I had the day off and decided the only sensible way to blow the morning was to go Duck hunting. I woke up to no wind, unlimited ceiling conditions, and 42 degrees. Not the weather for saltwater duck hunting. But I had to push on anyway.
yesterday i headed to a spot i usually see diving ducks working. I was able to set out my decoys and relax with some hot coffee. After 20 minutes a lone Merganser flew into my set up. I swung the bead threw him and slapped the trigger. He fell the 3 feet to the water like rock and never twitched. After retrieving the Merganser I set up again and watched a lot of nothing unfold. I did have 5 Brant land in my decoys, but they do not open till the day after Thanks Giving. Other than that nothing was really flying so i pulled the plug at 9 and headed home to clean the bird and take a nap.
