Today was the opener of duck and regular goose season here. We were hunting a partially flooded soy bean field on the biggest river in the area (plus it's only a mile and a half from my house). Shooting hours started at 7:20. By 7:35, we had 6 wood ducks in the bag between three shooters. The ducks were on top of us in no time and came in a steady stream with a final flock of about 25 to 30 (which came in even though the dog was running around). Later, we added one more woody. The geese were also flying good and we were able to call in a group of three, which we took 2 out of (but should have had all three; I should have gotten 2 of them but missed my first 2 shots somehow). Most of the geese flying were pretty high and appeared to be returning from feeding elsewhere, but we were abe to get several groups to look, but we only had 4 goose decoys out (our main game was duck this morning). Unfortunately, the mallards are not down yet. We only saw woodies.
