Craig and I, along with two other Vanderbilt Brethren are headed in the Northern NY Zone for a duck hunt this weekend. (Rensselaer Falls area) Most likely divers. But we will chase puddlers if there is an opportunity. Lows expected to be in single digits Fahrenheit - BRRRRRRR!!!

Our hunt was great on day 1. All big ducks. all decoying into a St. Lawrence river cove with a 20 MPH wind. temps hung up in the 20's -quite comfortable compared to our expectations.
Unfortunately the boat motor had a catastrophic diagnosis when we got back to shore and we lost use of the boat. we stayed another day but were had to set up with wind in our faces. 8 degrees bluebird sky set up wrong. it was a short hunt and we headed home.
Always big fun. 13 days till our second season opens. Counting them down by the hour!

Thanks for posting those photos.

Cold weather duck hunting is for only the most dedicated. Mark was shooting a Parker 3 frame 12ga and I was shooting my Super Fox. Our friends were shooting a Benelli Super Eagle 1 and a Model 23 Winchester Duck. The next morning the temps dropped to 7 and ice fog on the river kept the ducks from flying. A full moon and north wind also pushed ducks south overnight. Sometimes you just hit the migration and conditions perfectly as we did on our first hunt.

Question: how many ducks did they get? Answer: Two piles. That is what I say when someone asks how many doves did you get.
