yep... put in at the wma on the chickahominy. Conditions were perfect. I couldn't have asked for a better wind. Anyway got my spread of about 18 mallards out and the blind up well before sunrise. Had about 15 mallards pass over low enough to shoot but I tried to work them in. I had about 10-15 more flocks of mallards pass by and hardly give me a look. I had a drake pintail circle me 3 times but never came in. Pretty frustrating. I don't want to have to target diver ducks, but it's looking like that's what I'll have to do if I want to get some shooting in.

Went this afternoon shot 4 green heads. Should have done much better but the guns had a bend in them. Duck hunting has been slow in va. You can shoot some ducks in areas, but over all slow. If this cold snap does not do it I dont know.

Went for geese this morning got our limit of 12 birds by 10:00, had a pond on the property that had some mallards and 4 drake cans on it, boy they are a pretty bird.

Went for my first single hunt today and it was quite a morning to try hunting alone! Took forever to put out decoys without an extra hand, so i was not set up for shooting light and missed a few flights. managed to kill one drake mallard and called it a day. I also had a group of 12 give me a look but i started calling and they headed on... need to work on that... The piankatank was real messy today. hope everyone was safe
