One of the best aspects of duck hunting is meeting new people and hunting in new areas. This hunt features both of those, but also flocks of field mallards!
Farming practices are always changing and many fields not get tilled under at some point during the season. While these fields can still provide food for waterfowl, it difficult to get hidden with no vertical cover. Upright blinds offer hunters an opportunity hunt these scenarios and with a little strategizing on the wind and sun angle, ducks can be fooled despite the blind literally sticking out.
Ducks don’t always read the script and as was the case so many times last year, there was a flurry of activity right at sundown, but it’s never a bad time getting to watch “The Show”.
