Well, we have eased our way into the middle of the Illinois duck season. Here on the Illinois River we've been up and down with some good days, but more slow ones then anything.
Pretty warm weather and not a lot of wind has made it more difficutl then expected, but a few tasty woodducks have managed to find their way over the dekes.
Thursday, November 3rd was an exception with a rain storm and windy conditions. A friend and I bagged our 8 mallards and a bonus bufflehead. A migration of birds came thru that day with great reports up and down the river. Doesn't seem to happen often enough anymore.
Next report 7 to 10 days- stay tuned and thanks for checking out our website.
