2013-14 Hunting Regulations
2013-14 Waterfowl Regulations
Ducks typically fly with the wind (not all the time) but land against the wind, so wind at your back means ducks landing in your face.
always hunt with the wind at your back or a cross wind across the front of you. that allows the ducks to land in front of you. if you hunt with the wind in your face, the ducks will land away from you and it is difficult to get a shot.
Having the sun at your back is a great advantage. Having the wind at your back is another. Having the wind coming in sideways with the sun in your back is good too.
...it's like a Yankee Doodle WW1 fighter pilot...climb to the sun with a headwind and don't stall...and quit mess'n w/'dat trim tab...while Coonazz Pierre shoots back w/a double barrel shotgun ???...(cheers from the 'Shell-Shot Wabbit')
The Duckbusters say that wind position is more critical, you can always wear sun glasses
...that duck is smarter than a 5th grader...going into the wind gives him lift w/the increase of air over wings but at the same time gives him a slower ground speed for landing...even when he drops his web feet they act as flaps that slows him even more...besides giving him a softer landing...(good thing his balls are way in the back)...cheers
