  2. Congrats John. Now time to hear all the ways to cook a merganser jokes (e.g. boil in old work boot for 30 minutes, then throw merganser in trash and eat boot).

    A Good Finish?

    The 10 day forecast finally looks encouraging. Looks like we might get some winter temperatures toward end of the week. More importantly, looks like New York will start to freeze up.

    Male has a yellow bill. Female is a dullish green.

    Congrats. Nothing like green heads in full plumage in the winter.

    Is this abnormally bad?

    Took a drive to scout this morning since it is warmer then it was during the first split in October. Drove the coastal area from SIC to Somers Point. I literally only saw brant, buffies, mergs and black ducks. And very small numbers of scoters around the inlets. I've only been doing this a couple years now but this seems pretty bad for January. We need some cold weather badly before the season ends. Running out of days on the calendar.

    Anyone Duck Hunting?

    they clearly have never bought decoys before, or they would've took the geese over the ducks

    Anyone Duck Hunting?

    Ducks have been stale for a while now it seems. I haven't been out in over a week. Was hoping this week, but looks like not till after christmas with so much going on. Hopefully we get some birds pushed down by then. Goose hunting reports seem to be good from the field guys though Need that Polar Vortex to drop down.....

    Diver decoys

    Ordered a dozen of the Avian X bluebills. Dicks Sporting Goods was running a 25% off and free shipping this past weekend so got a pretty good deal I think.

    stale Birds

    From the reports I've been reading it seems most mallards are still up in New York. In my limited experience we don't really see a good push of birds in until the real winter sets in and new york is completely locked up. There was a great migration report on Team Realtree that seemed very accurate. The season started off really well with cold weather pushing a lot of the early migrators in. We were loaded up with wood ducks (both resident and migratory). I have a feeling things aren't gonna really peak until January with the way the weather reports are looking. Here's the Realtree Report, good read: https://www.realtree.com/waterfowl-hunting/flyway-report/atlantic-flyway-waterfowl-hunting-holding-steady
