    Re: Duck Season 2017-2018

    been checking with guys from Start to Mer Rouge to Lake Village Ark, seems all had pretty ok opening weekends but success dropped quickly. friend in Lake Village told me Friday that every duck in the area seems to have left. they are set up to hold ducks and if they don't have ducks, very few have them. there is a huge lack of wood ducks on the creeks around Lincoln, Jackson and Bienville as well. come on second split.

    Dad's blind in Monroe did great on mostly teal Sat, Sunday and Monday of opener...then it really petered out. He hasn't even been going. We still have some birds in timber but about 1/10th or so of what we had for opener. Nothing in WRP fields yet.

    Terrible, terrible, terrible in SE Ark right now. No ducks, no water. Don't see it getting a lot better in the foreseeable future. People are reporting how many ducks they see, not kill.

    Are they including shovelers in that number?

    Re: Duck Season 2017-2018

    I hope so....I love shooting shovelers..ask Charlie We were iced up in Arkansas one year except for one little hole in a resovoir and EVERY duck in the county was trying to get into it. We were going to limit on greenheads and whatever else we wanted to choose from no problem. Right as we were getting close to a limit Charlie warned me not to shoot any shovels as they were bombing us in groups of 20 or more...of course i busted a double or triple(can't remember exactly) out of the next flock He was fit to be tied! I did it again on a similar hunt last season and we just both died laughing...it was only a single this past year though.

    Re: Duck Season 2017-2018

    been trying to find some wood ducks for opening of second split Saturday. Was on Darbonne Creek in northwest Lincoln where our place is and not a single duck flew the creek yesterday morning. Went to the old Jackson Bienville wma to our lease to see what would come into a slough that I have that we've killed a couple ducks out of early in the first split. Had only a pair come in and nothing else flying. I hope something changes quick or this would be worse than the previous 3 years and I would have thought that not possible.

    Spoonies have been non-existent as well! They are calling for big rains and a strong cold front next weekend. 3-4 inches of rain would help tremendously! No shortage of snow geese up there though!!!

    The freeze line will be north of us at some point soon. Will they stop or keep heading south?

    Re: Duck Season 2017-2018

    wife unit got me and Brendan a green timber hunt in Stuttgart for Christmas. Scheduled it for jan5th which a was a few days on the backside of the hard freeze. well, looks like it extends into at least friday now and might have to pick another date. thought the hard freeze in ark might move birds here but looks like the temps are gonna be very close to the same thing here. I have a slough/beaver pond that ought to be prime for this weather, just gonna have to break the ice off of darby each time she makes a retrieve.

    Hunted oxbow just off Red River yesterday evening. Shot four, two greys, one mallard and teal. Looked like a flight was getting started and worked more mallards than before. Monday morning ought to be epic if you have water.
