Well, all the birds are still up here, even with everything froze up. The refuge portion of the wildlife area I hunted today is absolutely stacked with thousands of mallards, it's insane, it's amazing how many birds can fit into little openings of water. I came up alone since everyone bailed on me at the last minute, so I was a little nervous about exploring too much with all the ice everywhere. I found one open hole in the ice with a few birds on it. So that's where I set up this afternoon. Wasn't much of a flight after I got set up, they all seemed to be flying when I was driving around scouting. Hopefully I can kill a few in the morning before I have to head back. I managed 1 this evening. Should have had a couple more but the ones I did see didn't want to cooperate.
