  1. Mallard limit

    Yes they breed in different areas. There are tons of local breeding Mallards in the area I live and have been since I can remember. Black dark numbers are good along the coast and Inland on migration but nowhere near mallards , but soon to be 2 and 2 ? That's not right. The way they count birds is different than what I'm used to I guess. Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Mallard limit

    Word on the street possible mallard limit change to the daily limit. I guess they want to change it to 2 per day. Anyone else hear that ? Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Mallard limit

    Anyone ever think the high numbers of Mallards in 1998 was due to duck Hunters getting out of hunting when they took away lead in 91 . 7 years of breeding with alot less Hunters equals lots of birds. Around 1998 with record high numbers in every magazine out there expect the duck hunting sport to Boom. Newer steel shot non-toxic loads brings more people. In return lower numbers. It's called common sense not much people have anymore. Now with a lower number of birds ,and breeding . If u don't fix the hen harvest. The old saying you can't fix stupid.

    Wow if they allow 2 hens then they are the stupidest people on Earth. Can't make chicks with out hen's. So there is the same amount of blacks as mallards in the Atlantic flyway ? Why is balcks at 2 ? Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  6. Mallard limit

    I was sent a big survey book this year that look like a exam for duck hunting. Not the typical 1 that u get once in a while . It asked all types of questions 80 plus . I was wondering what it was all about ... Guess mine didn't matter . I know the western zone late season dates area all about the finger lake clubs crying about divers ( Timing the cold). Then the mallards move thru when it closed in the break . Then people complain about numbers of birds. Like gamble said just going to have to ride it out !! Sandwick ... Its way far to the left Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    New York is probably the only state that will have this law. Lmao Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Mallard limit

    Did they give a reason to not push this this year ? It's common sense if numbers are down. Hens make chicks how about 1 hen? Jump to a conclusion but waits a whole hunting season . Get the guy /group the f out of there . Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    If it is down i agree i guess, but that's a bummer cuz it was a killer year. Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Mallard limit

    I say 1 step at a time , try 3 mallards . Then go from there. Cutting it in half would push some people away. 3 per person would put u in that 9 to 15. 3 to 5 people in a normal size group. Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    It's almost like telling a charter captain u can't keep salmon anymore . Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Mallard limit

    2 is not worth the time and work . I think the state should try 3 before they jump to 2. Not a good way to get people into hunting when u go out and bang bang u go home. Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. 2017 WATERFOWL SEASON

    The 2017 season is here 🦆 !!! I didn't have much time the passed couple of weeks to scout but I had a field to go to ... There is only about 50 birds in it , I only planned on hunting it if i couldn't find anything else. Well I didn't find anything else so I went solo not to waste anyone's time. I packed light 2 dozen shells and 4 full bodies no blind just put some straw on top of me. At 645 had a flock of 15 come to my right and land I sat up and they just looked at me , I lined up heads and put the smack down. Got 6 one was a sailor that I never found . Then a 3 pack comes in my face and they go down . To end the day a solo comes in to take it. Funny part was that's all I saw . I can't find any birds Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  16. 2017 WATERFOWL SEASON

    Found a roost spot with a couple thousand snows on it , I cant hunt the pond but I can hunt the field next to it. Would have shot alot if I could water swat them. They all got up at once and flew over. I went 6 for 6 and my buddy crippled 1 lol . Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    We put them down !! It was a real slow morning just 2 solos. Then at 11 it was like someone hit a light switch , they didn't stop flock after flock . Tip of the day , we didn't call 1 time the birds didn't want to hear a thing. Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app
