Date: 1/24 ditched out of town immediately after and didn't have time to make log post

Time: Morning

Location: canyon

Cloud Cover: light with very heavy fog til 8

Wind Direction and Velocity: nil

Temperature: 30's

Barometer:

Moon phase:

Special Notes: Due to rain couldn't come in our normal way so had to walk a ways in and couldn't get to a spot we could set a well enough spread for puddlers.

Waterfowl Activity: We are loaded with widgeon right now, although they couldn't be happier where they are, which was not our spread.

Waterfowl Responsiveness: Divers came at will and puddlers couldn't care

Hunters: 4

Guns:

Malfunctions:

Dog(s): Milo, excellent work dealing with the current making many long retrieves. Seems to have forgot his trend of breaking after hunting with my buddies dog that breaks. Rock steady and made for a very pleasant day.

Special Equipment:

Kudos: Great time had closing out the season and shot a few birds

Curses: Was only able to get 4 decoys right up to the bank due to current and high water. Did loose a couple birdss to the current, one being a stud widgeon of course.

Birds By Species: 9 bills and 1 ringer

Photo Ops:


Thanks Olly for creating the log section, has really been a favorite part of my season keeping up with it and looking back. Have really enjoyed the other logs as well being able to see what's up where they are posting from.

You had some awesome hauls of wigeon, something we've not done since 2005. Killed plenty that year but since then it's 2-4 per season. Apparently they've shifted west

Nice hunts, look forward to seeing your posts next season

We usually hold quite a few widgeon by end of season. Hard part is being able to get where they want to be. Last day we watched hundreds of them in the air over a private pond about 100 yards away but none would venture from it. .
