North zone, what to expect late season?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I'm new this year to waterfowl. I live and hunt in North Jersey..  Ive duck hunted in the past out of state and decided to take the plunge this year.  Practiced calling, first bag of decoys ect.. scouted hard and on day 2 was able to get on some woodies without any help. I'm pumped and hooked..

Now I went out this past sat after the break from early season and not a single bird flying?? I assume the cold snap pushed the woodies out.. but what would I expect next? Mallards, black ducks ect.. Only thing I've seen in past few days was what I believe were bufflehead on a private pond.. Any advice would be appreciated.. just wondering if its dried up until goose on these norther ponds.. thanks!

A majority of the Woodies moved south. You can still find them up north if you know where to look. I have killed Woodies in January but not many. Mallards, blacks, gadies, ring necks, redheads, and divers will be the new game. Knowing where to go is the key. Tons and tons of scouting. Good luck
