Was most definitely a challenging(when are they easy)duck season 2017-2018 and wrapped up a tough season with a hunt with two diehards and wanted to give recap.Made 33 total hunts,all on Public Land and some decent,some excellent,some terrible.De Nuck and Futz Duck Busters typically do solo hunts and I made 25 solo hunts and managed 31 ducks with the following species(had 2 solo limit hunts,one each in first and second split).On my solo hunts,bagged the following:16 greys,3 green wings,2blue wings,2 mallards,2 dos gris,1 widgeon,1 mottled duck,1 redhead,1 woodie,1 spoonie,1 lost Ringed Teal.I tag-teamed with Gerard and Matthew(Matthew and I made only one tag-team hunt,zero ducks harvested)and with Gerard,we bagged the following 21 ducks:8 green wings,5 blue wings,3 mallards,2 greys,2 spoonies,1 dos gris.Total on all hunts was 52 ducks,terrible for numbers but we certainly had some quality in de bags,minus the spoonies and dos gris.Got another die-hard in de wings and he is willing to put in de effort to scout,scout,scout some more and we have plenty of fine spots in NShore Marsh where we NEVER see another hunter and fully intend to thoroughly scout the Joyce WMA area as I have been told there are some fine woodies and greenheads out there,limited access is de ticket and we really bust it to not only get away from crowds but we hide extremely well and we keep promising ourselves dat we gonna video some hunts so folks can get an appreciation for how well we hide,sometimes getting 5-yard shots,late in de season!!
