I'll post results later but we ended the weekend with a 3 man limit Saturday but only 5 today(but I shot 3 of the 5 banana2)

I think were at 175 birds for the year. Started poor but ended good.

Where's the number of shots taken, hits, etc? Come on smile

I got to hunt about 15 times this year which is more than the last 10 years combined so I call that a huge success. Didn't shoot a ton, probably avg 1 bird a hunt, skunked a few times, but overall I was happy, and FINALLY found a hunting partner to do it with so we had a blast. For the first time in many many years I'm going to be aching for the next season to start!

Donít keep a tally of birds and species but Iíd guess 50-75 birds for me personally, with 50-60% of those being greys, 20% widgeon, 10% mallards, 5% spoons, 1% each pintail, ringneck, canvasback, wood ducks and gwt. Skunked once or twice.

Differs quite a bit from last year in that we shot lots of teal and no spoons or canvasbacks. No redheads in the last 3 years that I can remember. No bwt this year.

Nice spreadsheet. I need to start journaling hunts.

Here is my season totals.

Early teal...didn't go

First split

Wigeon 5
Gadwall 4
Pintail 4
G.W. Teal 1

14 total 1st split

2nd split

Mallards 28
Gadwall 65
Wigeon 3
Pintail 4
Woody 14
Spooner 3
Can 1
Ringneck 3
Redhead 1
G.W. Teal 36

2nd totals 158

Season totals 172 birds

About 60-70% of my hunts were solo. 25% with another person and a few hunts I had 2 people with me. I hunted more this year than last year and shot fewer ducks (199 last season) Overall a good season but compared to last year not as good. Learned some valuable lessons this year. I had 14 hunts this year where I skunked or got only 1 bird. 9 of those were first split and early 2nd. I hunted at 6 different lakes/areas. All public

I wish I kept better numbers, we had a mediocre season in SETX but our road trip hunts made up for it. I hunted in SETX 6/12 weekends of season and hunted other areas the other 6 weekends. 2 years ago my fiance and a friend of ours went on a road trip duck hunt and saw all of the missed opportunities (field ducks, geese, etc.) so we decided so start buying gear to prepare us for when those opportunities arise. Over the last 2 years we have accumulated quite the decoy spread to prepare us for all situations and it definitely paid off. Hopefully we can get on some snow geese around here before they all leave!

I didn't keep track of exactly how much species of each I shot. However I ended up with 147 birds this year. I cannot complain being a college student double majoring it is hard to find time to sneak away, most hunts were done over the holidays. I could not get over the number of gadwall this year though. I would say around 60% of my birds this year were gaddys. Crazy.

I hunted 11 times personally. I got 29 ducks personally. Majority (12) were GWT. Didn't hunt Teal season.

My brother hunted 8 of those hunts and he got 13.

I buddies go on 2 different hunts but they both skunked. It was a weird season overall but I call it a success.

Are y'all's numbers for the group of personally? Also, it would be nice to know how many hunts you went on to reach these numbers.

I wish I could hunt as much as your "Hard to find time"... Lol. You shot all those? Or is that a group total? If my math is correct, that would be 24.5 hunts if you limited each hunt which I have to believe you didn't... I got 11 hunts over the entire season...

My group totals:

259 ducks
4 geese

Gadwall - 100
Mallard - 47
Wigeon - 34
Teal - 30
Spoonies - 13
Pintail - 10
Ringneck - 10
Woodies - 8
Goldeneye - 2
Bluebill - 2
Mottled - 1
Canvasback - 1

Birds per man Average: 3.65
Hunts: 21
Birds per hunt Average: 12.5
Skunks: 0

Total number of hunts, total bird numbers and birds per man average were lower than they have been in a LONG time. Birds just weren't in good numbers for the areas I typically hunt. Hunting pressure was WAY up for the area I hunt and habitat wasn't as good. We zigged when we should've zagged several times, but enjoyed the season.

My oldest son, 12yo, was with me on all but 2 hunts. He had some firsts this year. Friday he shot a stud Goldeneye that is going on the wall.

We hunted all over this year; from the coast to N TX to Arkansas and Oklahoma.

Observations this year; Teal were almost non-existant for us this year. Teal and Gadwall flipped this year compared to last year. Brely shot any gadwall last year and shot the snot out of teal. This year the numbers are almost exactly flipped.

Shot mallards on more hunts (several hunts that we killed 2-3), which is unusual. We are either on the Mallards or we don't see them, hardly ever just kill a couple/hunt.

Looking forward to seeing what next season has in store for us!

just finished totaling my stuff too. I don't keep record of species numbers anymore. I used to but it made me crazy.

individual total: 190 ducks, 0 geese, and 9 hooded mergansers.

averaged 4.8 birds per hunt on 41 hunts.

narrowly edged out my season form 5 years ago to have my best to date.

Group totals: 426 ducks, 2 specks, and 23 hooded mergansers

96 hunters on 42 hunts averaging 4.7 birds per hunter per hunt.

All around our best to date and one to remember. Having said that...thank God its over! I'm tired and I think my wife wants a divorce. Time to get on the honey do list and mend the fence.

No that is my individual total, which Included early teal.I hunted every day over thanksgiving break and Christmas break, which was around 25 hunts, with 1-2 hunts hunt a week during the school semester. I am blessed enough to have access to a fair amount of private land Iím able to hunt at school and around Home, where I can shoot my limit most of the time, obviously I still had bad hunts. . I guess my hard to find time is a little bit of a stretch lol, I was used to hunting every day before class back in high school
