That didn't pull trigger. Buddy wasn't wearing face mask. Think that was issue. We saw 5 groups- several pairs singles- just about all mallards.

Had 1 group cup, and haul A, we had a pair cup while we were standing- good bye.

A lot more birds today than last week-.but sad results.

Birds are extremely wary- if everything isn't perfect- see any face motion not finishing.

I have never had a hunt the last 20 years that we saw decent number of birds, perfect wind- and no harvest.

Had a great time though! LOL

It's that time of the season...they've seen it all and been shot at. Been tough this week for me as well.

Totally opposite down here today. Birds were the most cooperative they have been all season.

That is why I always have more than one facemask in my bag.

I always carry facepaint in my boat, if someone does not bring a facemask, they have to wear makeup. They usually never forget the facemask again. That stuff is a PITA to remove.

I never wear facepaint or a facemask. My blind is averaging 5.5 ducks per hunter per hunt. Here is a hint don't look at them on top of you and they wont see your face.

I use the face paint. I use wet wipes to get it off. Never had a problem. I haven't ever used a face mask.
