This is always a hard time of year for me. Made worse because my plans for the day have been OBE'd (overtaken by events) so I'm flailing about for the next best thing. I just read again about the events at Reelfoot Lake this morning. Sounds quite tragic (2 dead millennials, 1 dead 70-year old) in a duck blind dispute? Hard to imagine what the actual story there is, the information being released is quite cryptic. I'm also reading a number of news stories lately about a very rural part of Pennsylvania that I used to hunt and fish in. Absolutely gorgeous country there....look up "Dent's Run Gold" if you want to be entertained a bit about a missing Civil War payroll and a recent FBI excavation at the site. I actually called an old acquaintance of mine in the area yesterday to get the local perspective.

I just drove 1100 miles through the mid western snowstorm to arrive home safely. They were many times during the drive home I could have used some thing off topic.

Similar here. I'm slowly cleaning out the truck, guns, shells and bending some wood

Around here, it's the worst duck season that any of us can remember. Zero rain between mid November and early January, temps in the 90s in January, no significant weather up north to drive the ducks south, no ducks.

Ducks have learned the same thing geese did: there's no point in flying any further than necessary to escape winter. Get used to more seasons ahead like this one.

There must be a hell of a lot of ducks somewhere, 'cuz they ain't up here either. We also had a terrible season and the birds "never came down". Makes no sense.

Bad duck season, but a great late dove season. I took 87 during the last season, which ended today. That's much better than what I had hoped for. There are seasons for game birds, and there are seasons of change. Nothing stays the same for long. Look forward to next season ........ and tomorrow. Both are a gift.

Cant speak for ducks, but when the Pa'tridge season was open is was above average round these parts. Especially the later December season.
