I started getting interested in ducks a couple of years ago, and stumbled a local pond that overflows that has a few ducks and geese.

I went Monday morning for the first time, set up by a huge oak. Just as light broke I spotted what I think we're teal?? As the we're darting back and forth rapidly. Next in was a group of 6 or so wood ducks.

Enter the mallards. About 12 to 15 entered over the next 30 minutes or so. I wasn't in a very good spot so I just observed and listened to them interact. It was so awesome to watch.

I located a big oak that blew down up close to the main pond where they kept landing and built a make shift blind.

Tuesday morning I entered the blind only to find it iced up about 40 yards out. So I tried to stop around and break it up.

Now the part that floored me. I sat and saw nothing, so I made a few calls trying to imitate what I heard yesterday. Lo and behold a wave of mallards start coming in, then more and more! There were probably 25 in the air circling and working in. I was pumped up. Never seen anything like it!

The ice had pushed birds slightly out of range but I finally had this guy land right behind me in the ice surprising me. I snapped a few photos and then jumped him up and took a shot.
I can see why this sport hooks you!
