Not sure it is really going to matter much, ducks will still migrate, happens every year.
Same story every year, people do not see ducks in there area and think we have none, not really the case at all. You just have to be mobile, one lake will be empty and another will be loaded, that's what I have been seeing the last few weeks.
Friday was the only day I did not see numbers all year but the same lake I saw well over 1,000 ducks yesterday. Ducks migrate through the area, some stay depending on weather and some move on, just the way it goes.
We have had a very good first split, hunted 10 days out of the last two weeks and saw plenty of birds each day on different lakes.
You just have to find them. Some lakes have none, believe me I have looked at them too but others may be loaded.
Weather does play a big roll in the type of birds we see from day to day though.
