I think that the counts are mostly guesstamations..............one thing for sure, there are no birds in Overton, White, Putnam or Jackson counties either on ponds, swamps, Dale Hollow, Cumberland river or elswhere in this area. Worst it has ever been. My retriever thinks I take her just to see it get daylight.

So why are the numbers so low??? This is the first of January and Reelfoot should be holding a bootie load of ducks and geese. Is the water not getting pumped into the refuges early enough?? Some refuges as shown seem to be doing very well. Are they not planting them like they use to?? Who pissed who off?


Something is up!

I think this is one of those years that the majority of the Mallards went west.Camden and Ky Lake have been dead but you can drive 20 minutes west of there and find some to hunt.Crazy year Indeed but a day Duckhunting is better than a day at workCool

If I had to guess, I'd say the new numbers won't come out until the end of February.

Doesn't look like they even bothered counting Cordell Hull in late December. Just as well. I can confirm the presence of about 150 sandhills and 9 ducks. I've heard from a source who lives on the lake that there were exactly zero geese a couple weeks ago, which is weird because there have always been resident flocks that use the river.

DeKalb and Warren counties were practically flooded in December, and there was a lot of slack water, and I did see a lot of ducks flying around down there, but I haven't seen anything much in the rest of the Upper Cumberland.

I got a feeling the warm south wind will help.I think that most of our normal migrators have already passed.The south wind will bring them back.

West TN is seeing birds, but not killing as many as liked. Alot of tall birds, but heard Crocket hunt club is supposedly slaying them. I agree with BBB, better in the field than at work.
