    Well our ducks we were holding on the public land we hunt left out... Managed to scratch out our limits getting our greenheads and our off ducks (including one of the prettiest widgeons to date) but the duck numbers were an eighth of what they've been being... Prayin for this front to replenish our stock... Anybody else notice the drop in numbers? Maybe leaving ahead of the weather... Or because of how blessed hot it is..

    Very few ducks here in SW AR. Steady cold weather is hitting the upper Midwest. Maybe we will see a few new ones.

    Hearing reports of the same.....much lower numbers than the first split.

    Saw it first hand yesterday and decided to stay home and catch up on some chores today. For me not to go duck hunting on a Saturday that I am not working does not happen often.

    Need some good rain and cold right behind it!

    Pretty mixed bag for us but from what I have seen. The teal hold until mid December. They are good eating birds too though.
