we went out at 5pm two weeks ago as we got to pond 2 mallard came in. slowly tried getting guns ready without them noticing but they clocked us and flew off. we were going to go half hour early today. only 2nd year on the pond , few mallard , plenty of teal and a woodcock eluding me.
the mallard kept threatening to land but veered off each time. im going to try 3 decoys and have been practising calls all week to see if that helps
hoping for more mallard. been 80-90% teal last year and altho their tasty they are so small its almost pointless. ferrets like them tho
