SOOOOO
We headed down the Missouri In pitch blackness to hunt ducks and geese.
After 40 minutes of nail biting cold windy jet black river travel, and an hour mucking around setting goose mallard and gold eye decoys the sky lightened from the east. At about 10 minutes before shooting light we had 5 flocks of big green head land in our sets then take off when they discovered they where doubt. Some while we where standing in the river working...

Any way with high hopes we raised the blind on the boat and sat. And sat.
And sat...
What ever we did it was just not quite right wave after wave of bright green headed mallards would come in , set there wings then just short of our maximum range and just slowly turn and glide down the river and disappear behind a distant bank.
Flocks of geese would descend from there 1000 foot flying paths to do the same as the ducks. We would rearrange, slightly move the boat, call, not call . Nothing seamed to help.
We did get a few ducks that accidently slip in to our 45 yards range that did not make there escape...

Nice pictures.
When that happens I always think something in my set is
spooking them. usually I just can't find it. ice on
deks, light colored decoy line, plastic bag that blew
in???????   tough to know, but very frustrating.

I usually have large sets; and I have pulled in all but
about 7 and had better luck. problem, as you know,
screwing around in the deks only lets the best flight
fly by!

better luck next time.

D;

That's a CH47 Chinook out of the National Guard unit in
Helena. I can pretty much guarantee that Wendy ain't in
it. My son was in that outfit & knows the guys. If she
were on the ramp observing, I'm pretty sure they'd hit an
air pocket & ooops! So sorry. Her personality would
demand it.

Looks like a good enough set was had. Just means you will have to try it again another day...

So Wendy wasn't the semi-attractive warden that suggested a campsite move some time back?
...oh yeah! thats gonna hurt!
