Well, the duck season ended on Friday.
We gave it one more shot and that's about how it ended. I fired one shot and came home empty handed.
Two weeks ago there was a flurry of action when what I thought were northern birds flying along the Snake River.
The next two hunts proved that the massive migrations of northern ducks did not arrive in Idaho.
I remember when there were 750,000 ducks at Lake Lowell in the '70s. One count last month at the lake showed more than 90,000.
Don't know what's going on. We used to have a good migration. Columbia River mallards were common in Treasure Valley right after Thanksgiving.
I can say that this was one of the worst duck seasons in my 43 years of hunting.
Well, there's always next year.
