This was my first season to ever hunt ducks. I spent a weekend with family in LA hunting, and a day in Dayton hunting wood ducks.
The LA hunt was quite plush - we were dropped off in an air boat for each hunt at our blind. One day it was so foggy we couldn't see a duck flying 20 feet above us. The second day we were battling mosquitos the whole time...but I got my first duck!
The hunt in Dayton was much more rugged. We waded out into the marsh with only a couple of decoys and waited for some ducks to fly by. Success again! Got my first wood duck. It's still in the freezer waiting to get taken to the taxidermist.
