A few things come to mind for a typical Nebraska waterfowl opener, t-shirts and sunscreen. This year opening day seemed as if we were in mid-season stride, Northwest winds and snow! With the changing weather patterns there was an abundance of migrating birds. From early Friday night until about noon on Saturday it was nonstop white fronts. No duck migration to report as of now. The blinds did have success on both Saturday and Sunday, mostly bagging ducks and a couple geese.
- Saturday 10/10/09 – Most ducks observed were big ducks, not many teal. Lots of migrating white fronts.
- Sunday 10/11/09 – Not as many ducks observed. Big ducks and Teal seemed to be equal in numbers. Only 1 bunch of white fronts was observed.
