Went and scouted a hole yesterday around 2pm and managed to find around 50 gadwalls feeding in this slough, watched them for a while and slipped out before they saw me. What are yall's opinions sit it tonight? or wait to hunt it in a morning?

If they were already there at 2pm, that means they came in before 2pm (captain obvious here!) and an evening hunt wouldn't get you there before them...

Wait and hunt it in the morning.

I've had a little luck pushing ducks out of holes mid afternoon and letting them trickle back in but usually we get burned when we try to do it.

I've never had any luck waiting for them to come back.....just bust them on the jump and move to the next water hole....

I'd wait til morning....

If you push them off they'll likely leave and won't come back at least till morning.

Most likely roosting somewhere else and then hitting that hole to feed in the morning. Should be able to get onnthem if you'll set up before LST in the morning.

What else is around you that holds ducks? If they are roosting elsewhere and using this as a rest or water hole, sleep in and hunt mid morning to early afternoon. Loafing spots are the best to shoot, you don't bust up the roost, and you don't have to get up at butt crack of dawn.
