After being disappointed by the pond, we decided to drag RNH's grandfather's boat, back to the swamp for the start of duck season. Last year he killed the ducks and we had to go get the boat to retrieve the ducks. It was a lot of work and we didn't think ahead. (Hopefully one day I'll have a good retrieving dog to do it for me!!!) Anyways. We dragged the boat down to the swamp, cleaned out a few duck boxes, and checked out the area. We also brought along the duck calls.
We could hear various bird noises. A lot of "tweetie" birds were flying around, doves and crows. No ducks. Yet.
We push the boat further out into the swamp, past a huge beaver dam. There! We could hear a wood duck! YES!!!!
A little further and WHOOSH! About 10 ducks fly up. A little further.... SWIIIISH! More ducks.
There were a ton of ducks at the pond.
