Just kidding! I had a wonderful hunt tonight and love the variety of ducks that we have here in Utah. As you can see from the picture, one drake was really close when I opened the blind doors and he took a shot to the head.

Also, two of the ducks were full of "rice breast" (Sarcocystis). I have never seen it on ducks this early, has anyone else had any ducks like this so far this season?

Nope. I hunt a mixture of public and private. The private took me 5 years of building relationships before I even fired a shot.
Yeah, there's a lot of ducks up your way.

simple fix, stop shooting wigeons!;-)
Tonight, I honestly tried. I came out of the blind two different times when the wigeon was trying to land in the decoys. Each time it would head out, only to make a wide turn and come back. When it came in the third time, and was hovering over the mojo, it was all over. :)

CPA was that beakless drake on the wing? I've only seen that happen one other time and that was hunting with my grandpa a good 43 or so years ago, he took the front half of a drake mallard's head off on the wing.
