For you guys that were complaining after the 1st split about getting skunked more often than not and this being the worst season you can recall...Does it still hold true?

I wasn't one complaining then, but yes. I've seen less than half of the birds that I've seen in the past.

Compared to my last two seasons, this has been incredible.

I killed probably three times as many ducks this year (all public) than last year. Think I had one skunk this season. Might be able to get one or 2 more hunts in before its over.

I'm averaging like 1 duck per 5 hunts. I think I've killed 27 ducks since the Texas opener, usually I finish with 150 plus. Just tough around here this year.

Been above average but far from the best. Public has been average overall but slower than the last few years. The ponds at my deer lease have been phenomenal tho.

My wife and I welcomed a baby boy in November, so I've been extremely limited this season. One hunt a few weeks ago in north central Texas yielded a pretty quick 6 man limit (THANKS BLAKE E!). This past weekend I was part of 2 groups of 3 hunters for 2 mornings down in San Antonio Bay and only shot 4 redheads combined. OUCH!

Pretty steady for me. Had to find birds in different places this year for some reason. The old tried and true holes aren't producing as steady. But others have taken their place.

Probably one of the best seasons I've had in the past couple years! Especially on public land. I am shocked about the bad reports I have been hearing

Much less birds this year than last, but then again, I hunt at one particular location and they just aren't coming in there as good this year.

Been average for me. I'm sitting at 23 ducks over 9 hunts. For me this is pretty normal. Only one skunk mixed in but several 1 bird days. 2.5 ducks per hunt.

I haven't looked at the total for my group...

Ok. I calculated, 37 for the group.

3 hunts were solo and some of the others my buddies skunked. Overall, 4.1 ducks for the group per hunt. Have not hunted more than 3 guys at a time. I can't stand hunting with more than 4. My preference is solo or 2 guys.

Got 2 more hunts scheduled for the season. A solo and one with my brother.

I forgot to mention this is 100% public!

The first split was bad for me. 2nd split started bad but got good pretty fast. We shot a 3 man limit today...but yesterday only got a couple...go figure. I had walk in hunters ruin my hunt Thursday. Let one feller who walked 10 minutes before legal hunt with me. We shot 7 total while the barneys who set up 100 yards down wind from me shot and shot ...killing about what we did.

Its been that kind of season.

This season has been markedly better than the last 2. Less water seems to have concentrated them better.
