Where are the ducks?? I have hunted hard the last two days in anticipation of this artic front and I have seen zero new ducks! Yes, I hunt public but I have been avoiding the weekends and I'm still not seeing any decent duck numbers. Last two days I haven't had anyone around me at all and all Im seeing are the call & decoy shy ducks we have had for the last month and a half. If they don't come tomorrow ahead of this cold I think the season could be done for us. Ugh!! bang

Not gonna happen! I'll keep after em until the end. Just frustrating when you see weather like this and no new ducks.

I saw the more ducks when the highs were in the mid 60's. I don't get it.

Wasn't born in Texas, but I got there as fast as I could.

All of my tanks are covered up. Happens every year after the guys punishing the lake west of me run the Ducks off, a lot head to the tanks.

Will be hunting them in the morning.

Good luck to you.

The birds flew right on by you and are on the coastal prairies. Huge flights came down over the last few days.

Covered up with Canvasbacks and Redheads on the tanks in East Texas. We limit on Canvasbacks in the first 5 or 10 min, making for an interesting hunt avoiding them as they bomb us.

We saw hundreds of honkers, sprigs and reds this morning as well as mallards and some buffs. The next few days should be much better.

Do you ever get the feeling you're being watched? Because if you do, I'll stop doing it.

Should be a good time in Texas to do some bird watching and waterfowl photography with the drakes in breeding plumage…

Forget about cold fronts. Hunt the calendar and rain/new water.
