The ducks are here

Wed, November 09, 2016

Election night is usually a late one in the newspaper world. And it usually involves beer.

Which means getting up early the next day is not always an option.

But today was an exception. After what has been mostly a long, boring duck season, waterfowlers in the Illinois River Valley finally started to get well on Tuesday after a push of new birds arrived.

Hunters have been reporting big flocks of teal, mallards, widgeon and ring necks in good numbers.

Hot hunting continued this morning in the blind I was lucky enough to occupy at Banner Marsh with The Farmer and Mike McLuckie.

By the time I left (early, had to get to work) we already had nine birds in hand. And mallards were just starting to fly.

After a mostly forgettable start to duck season, that was a welcome change.

And for more good news, Canada geese are back in season here in the Central Zone on Saturday.
