The klamath basin had a huge botulism outbreak which isn't helping but we're slowly seeing a few more birds, this weather should help. Good luck to everyone

About 15-20 days ago we started getting honkers stream in very consistently. I would say they were on time for their migration. Been putting the wood to them since. We had a pile of ducks migrate in in the middle on November then disappear which was odd.

It looks like SLC is getting ready to get a good blast so I wouldn't lose hope yet.

For the 3 of us, the total so far this season is 107 Aleutians and about 25 ducks. The birds seemed to have moved south for now. We got skunked yesterday.

You just jinxed yourself
Been a bad year so far,but got a little love on Thursday. Took my oldest daughter and my cousin hunting in a honey hole we usually save for 1 special day.

We wrapped up our season yesterday. Ended up being the worst year we have had in the twenty years we have been hunting the delta. Just did not see very many ducks at all. I hope some of you guys had better luck.

No it was a bad year
We got into some geese to keep it from being a complete disaster.

what do those Brant taste like are they good to eat?
Brant are the best tasting of all the waterfowl, IMO. They are strictly an ocean bird feeding mainly on eelgrass in bays and estuaries. They only showed up for a couple days here this year and I missed it. We used to have a late season that ran until about Feb. 20th when they were migrating back north. I killed 60 one year. The limit was 4/day back then.
