Went and scouted two coves early last week and found a group of approximately 25 blue wings in one spot and about 30 in the second spot. The difference between the two coves was concealment. I chose the cove that had the larger group of birds in it and more cover for the hunters. We got rained out Saturday morning so we went sunday. This was 4 days after I scouted and we saw nothing but wood ducks. Did the rain and the cooler weather push them out?

Yes, that little front moved them south. They are very fickle.

I almost never hunt teal in the same place during the early season. Very hit or miss. You just got a get out and see what happens

I found a good amount in one cove on a public lake Friday afternoon. Didn't make it out Saturday because of lightning. Tried again Sunday morning even though I figured they had been pushed out, but managed to shoot a couple right at first light. Also had a group of 50 streak overhead later on. Great hunt? Not exactly, but better than I was expecting. You just never know until you get out there.

I didn't know I scouted and hunted with you! Same exact deal, except we killed the 3 that came in right at LST. I think my big group that buzzed over from behind me only had 49 tho... and I did expect at least one more group to decoy.

PM hunt opening day on one of the big lakes. Surprised me when we saw 40 right off. Then it slowed. Ended with 3 when a small group dumped in. 9 month old lab made her 1st retrieve. So it was good day overall. Maybe we'll give another lake a try this weekend. Why, because we can! bounce
