My buddy and I hunted our little pond up in the high country on opener. Bluebird conditions and not nearly the amount of waterfowl as last year. Saw a total of 9 ducks all Sat. morning and managed to pop a couple mallards. Did some jump shooting later in the day and finished with 7 mallards and a gaddy. 4 of the mallards were drakes that hadn't molted, which was a first for us. Normally all the birds up there are full-feathered by now. It can only get better!
