Chasing ducks? I would have guessed it would be locked up and the birds past that by then.

It's teal man, don't overthink it. Throw out 6-12 dekes and a mojo and have at it. It don't matter if you are where they want to be.

I like to finish ducks, I donít mind shooting them on the water. If I can get them to sit down, I did what I was trying to do. My favorite spread (teal ponds and on the bay for big ducks) is two separate pods of decoys. For teal Iíll throw 8 decoys in a cluster in front with 4 decoys farther behind leaving a pocket in the middle. With this spread I can get big bunches to sit down right in the pocket. I do the same thing in the bay, Iíll separate my divers and puddle duck decoys and make a bigger pocket for the rafts to land in.

Real slow morning in Williamson county. Pulled up to 5 trucks at my preferred spot. Chose an alternate. Have heard a few shots, but could be dove hunters.

Hammered them this AM.

Didnít see a single bird until 2 mins after shooting light and then we had a 4 man limit by 7:10 with no dog.

Lost 2 to alligators so probably a good thing the pup stayed home.

We only ended up with 4. Couple screw ups on the two groups that came in but not bad for where we were at. Just good to get out and enjoy the opener with family and friends.

Congrats everyone! We had 11 for 4 in Garwood. Slow on our little pond. Only 1 bird got out. The group on my big flat had a 4 man limit. LOTS of good reports from Anahuac, Brookshire & Garwood. Tomorrow is a new day!
