went out today, there was a little wind going straight down the river and the ducks mainly wanted to fly in the middle of the river and not come in.
my friend went yesterday, 25+ mph winds and -5 with wind chill, i was supposed to go but didn't want to freeze. but the wind was going the same direction and the ducks were everywhere, my friend just couldn't hit the broad side of the barn. a whole box of shells and he got 1 bluebill and 1 can which was a big surprise.
so i did learn high winds going down the river seems to be best for my area, but who knows maybe its just the year.
