    I know several groups that are having a record year. The Missouri river had been flooded for most of the duck season in Ne/Ia, we have more incredible duck habitat than we've has in decades with 1000's of acres of flooded corn. Access might not be easy, but we do have ducks still.

    Terrible down south. Ok/TX haven't had big pushes of birds yet and hunting is tough. Weather patterns have left the ones here stale and difficult to hunt.

    Seems like for the last 6 years or so each year I go to Arkansas gets worse. Ive heard all of the theories. No weather, changing in farming, nocturnal ducks, hunting pressure, heated ponds, too much flooded corn, refuge's etc. it seems everyone I talk to is down this year. I don't know a lot of people in the central, and pacific flyways, and was wondering how there doing. Obviously the weather has been getting weirder over the last several years, and seems to be our major issue. Flooded corn and heated ponds can't be the issue in my opinion. I just figured this forum has a lot of people from all flyways, and I wanted to see how everyone is doing

    On average, North Texas had been pretty poor, thus far.

    I have zero sympathy for you folks. I'm working the missile sites in the 60's in ND. Hundreds of thousands of ducks
    of all types until things froze over. The limit in ND was 1 of any species while the folks down South had a limit of 4
    or 5 depending on their state. Though the ND delegation tried they were outvoted by the Southern Democrats, ND
    being mostly a Republican state. So all I can post is HaHAHaHaHa .
