    I have some friends going this morning and will give a report of how it went. I just hope it isn't a bunch of skybusting and junk.

    Went Saturday morning and everything in the timber was iced over. Didn't see hardly any ducks either.

    Went yesterday for the first time ever. Saw NO ducks til 08:00. The we worked a few in, only killed six. Teal and gadwall, but better than I thought.

    Update on this morning, my buddies said they had a good hunt, everything was thawed, they killed their limit.

    No kidding. It looked like a good place to hunt if it wasn't all froze over like it was when we went. That was only my second time to hunt that area. First time we hunted over my Hill Slough. We did see 15 deer on the road that day to and from Rainey.

    We have been hunting there just about everyweekend. Saturday was slow and didny hear hardly any shooting. We were about a 100 yards from rainey brake, had a better hunt on the river Sunday here in batesville.

    Did y'all walk in Saturday?
    The game warden up there was a friendly guy. He just talked to us for a few minutes and then went on his way.

    it is all sky busting any time i go that is what most of the hunters are doing:censored: and when you get back to the trucks look at the people who are loading up out of state boys man i wish they would learn to call ,not get mad when the birds dont come to them.. the one shot flair is always going to go on when a big group of the day is comming in :banghead:

    Keeb: yea we walked in at skybust corner, everything was nice and frozen until we got to the boat lane, then it was clear...we had one wood duck almost land in, but then decided not too...and had 3 mallards that acted like they wanted to come in, and that was that...I got one-shot shot off, but like someone said above its usually sky busters galore!

    We got one mallard come in right at shooting hours. She didn't leave the hole. We decided to load up between 8 and 830 and had 3 try to work our hole when we were picking up decoys.

    Where did you guys put in at

    Don't know what it's called. My first time up on there. We put in at the first landing across from the big slough after the long strait away if that makes any sense. It looked like a campground that we were parked in. We saw several guys walking in at 4:30 when we were putting boats in just down from us. Saw some guys from Memphis putting in a wooden pirogue (sp) at about 9am when we were fixing to leave.

    You guys didn't have two people laying down on the front of the boat did you?

    More than likely.

    You may have come across us, we were behind a big log off to your right if you were to put your boat in at the floodgate launch (right across horseshoe lake)
