Tuesday the guys sat at the blind all day long only to bag three ducks. Most everyone thought they would see new birds showing up in front of the cold front with the hurricane winds that came through the area, however not much moved.
Wednesday had to be the day new birds moved in, blizzard warnings around the Devils Lake North Dakota area and winter weather advisories around the northern parts of South Dakota. Wednesday had to be the day. The guys stuck it out again all day long hoping that eventually something would happen. The first part of the day a single came into the decoys, a barrage of shots, one single flew away, oh boy, today is going to be one of those days, or so they thought. Not much moved for the first part of day, only Sandhill Cranes, but about 2:30pm things started to pick up. Some new birds were starting to push through and within the last 2 hours of the day a 5 man limit of ducks was taken plus four Honkers. Most of the ducks taken were Wigeon, Gadwall, and a few mallards. The Whitefronts started to move later that evening, I would imagine there will be birds in the kill hole the next few days.
I would like to say that this weekend is going to be decent, but I will just say it will be terrible so we don't jynx oursevles.
