We headed north into higher elevation in search of a better outing than the previous day. While we did see more birds, they were all located in ponds that were wide open. Several ponds held 20 Canada geese, another 30 mallards, and another with a mix of divers and puddle ducks. Stalking them for a shot proved difficult. Desperation lead us to flush the birds out of the ponds, and while they circled back, without any calls or dekes, we skybusted them like idiots. Normally I wouldn't do this but I figured that since there were no other hunters around it really did no harm other than our wallets and pride. Later in the day we moved south and managed to pass shoot a few ducks at last light but of course I couldn't hit shit. The trip was a bust but that's how it goes sometimes. It was nice to see some winter weather for a change.
