anyone out there right now? We've got a self-guided trip planned for the upcoming weekend Jan. 4-6th but at this point I highly doubt we make the trip.

My contacts in Boliver County aren't seeing anything. The migration hasn't made it down that far. Too warm. I would recommend waiting until later in January.

Great report. Glad you had a good time. My crystal ball says in about two weeks there will be ducks.

we went anyways.....4 guys self-guided. Killed 3 GWT and 2 gadwalls first day. Killed 4 ringers and a gadwall the second day. Should have killed twice as many but was some poor shooting going on. Had a few groups of mallards to work but just couldn't quite get em in range. We stayed in the blind all day first day. stayed til 12:30 second day. This was only our second trip going self guided and we learned a lot. There were a few guided groups that didn't pull the trigger. All in all it was a good trip...haven' laughed that hard in a while.

I'll be out there late next week, I'm hoping some cold weather moves in up north.
 
Hunted this past Friday and Saturday in Quitman county, had very good hunts both days. Lots of pintails, gadwall and teal, a few mallards as well. I'll be back next weekend. Look forward to hearing more updates thru the week.
 
Bad cell service there and then a old ankle giving out sent us home a day early ... still not great killed 3-4 birds a gun ... no limits by 9.. water still way up ... few more Mallards ... with weather coming hopefully a strong finish ... had a nice group of Mallards work with a Drake widgeon and my son said I'm killing ole cotton top ... it took all 3 but he got him ... I took 2 Mallards so we were both happy .. had to leave my girl at home bc of coming in heat but got her 1 yr old pup his 80th retrieve .... everyone stay safe and kill'um bc it's almost over !!!

We just got back from the south delta and picked up 112 over 12 hunts with 4 guns .....pretty slim numbers . The lowest numbers I have seen in my 29 years of hunting the delta . The majority of our birds were GWT, bootlips , and gadwall . only had 10 mallards and 4 sprigs . Water every where you looked .
