Hunted Sat, Sun, and Mon. Saturday was a bust. Never had anything close enough for a shot and saw very few birds other than the 4000 in the middle of Anchor Bay.

Sunday was major bummer. There were 7 rigs besides us. Saw a few guys broken down with a layout but we didn't know that untill we saw them getting towed. We had guys set up 100 yards to the left and right of us. 2 rigs were hunting in a safety zone, and 1 of those rigs was almost in the mouth of a marina and he did shoot toward it, or at least up the channel. We saw a a guy towing a layout with someone in it. We saw guys standing up in their layouts (either you are ballsy or stupid, the water temps are 44.5 degrees). We saw guys shoot birds and not retrieve the cripples because they were hunting from shore with no boat. The list goes on but I'll stop here...

Monday was nice. Had to be a group of 100,000+ birds in the bay. No wind at all in the morning till noon-ish. Ended the day with a Drake Mallard, 3 Guterballs and a surprise basketball. Anyone have a good recipe?

Nice job Chef, I talked to Mako a bit Sunday morning. Nice bunch o' birds. The difference I don't fully understand comparing last year to this is the lack of smaller groups of birds working around Anchor Bay. We are seeing lots of ducks but in groups of 1000 or more. Don't care what ya do they ain't gonna decoy.

As far as the Bozos, I guess I had it easy. I'm a 3rd generation duck hunter so I have all the past good and bad experiences from my grandfather, my dad, and uncle to learn from. Now I'm not saying I'm a pro at duck hunting but I'd like to believe I'm as close as I'll get to doing this sport successfully and safely each time I go out. Its just that watching what some of these guys do just scares the hell out of me. Have I ever mentioned the 2 guys we rescued from drowning during duck season 20 years ago? For some of these guys its just a matter of time before the worst happens.
