Seems like no one is showing off any pics. Everyone posting on facebook and Instagram? Or is it that bad all the way around? Been a tough first split, but we've managed. Here's a couple of limits from today

I prefer forums. I'm sure fb and Instagram are killing these types of forums. I like em cause I don't do the social media thing. This is as social media as I get

Its probably a combination. I know no one around me is getting any birds, and those that are have been posting on FB.

Got a text from the coast yesterday and they saw a total of 3 birds. Of course they went fishing, and the Texas coast is huge, so take that info with a grain of salt.

But nice pic BTW.

Opening day was the better, by far, of the three hunts I've been on so far. Second day was an afternoon hunt and didn't see any birds. Hunted the next morning and saw maybe 30 birds and the ones that were even remotely interested were very skittish and wouldn't commit.

Have hunted solo 3-4 hunts pre split- not including teal- primarily of duck numbers. The lack of water is really hurting Northern North Texas. I had about 400 birds last year's opening because my millet and smartweed was flooded.

Today saw significant pick up in birds. Tons of grey, some mallards, lots of GWT, mix of others.

Seems like the ducks in North Texas are favoring bigger water at the moment-I guess the shallow flats are holding more food- shot 3 Friday- only saw 6, over 100+ today, scratched out 6 and a few mergansers.

Central Oklahoma is holding tons of birds. I expect things to get better

I just tallied up my first split totals. 73 ducks on 9 hunts. Some were solo hunts, some were 2 man hunts and some were 3 man hunts. All public lakes. Had one hunt where we scratched and another only 1 bird. Both of those were 3 man hunts. So all the rest were decent hunts. Looking forward to the 2nd half also.
