Another great year of duck killing in Arkansas. I was there almost 2 weeks. Going back the last weekend in January too.

Nice work man. How were bird numbers this year compared to others? Seems like reports are all over the place up there this year. Some guys are crushing em and some are struggling

As far as setting up in the woods, it depends where the ducks want to land that particular day. If it was a clear day, we saw thousands of mallards flying.

SledNeck how far do you travel on average when you hunt in the timber? Nice pics. Thanks for sharing.

5 mins from the landing to 15mins. Then sometimes u can drive to the hole and sometimes u have to drag boats 600 yards

I thought your "how's your liver" remark was a joke about salt damaging my liver. As far as booze, man, I'm a lightweight these days. I only drink more than a couple beers at special occasions...like hunting trips. Long story short, I'm a cheap date, tomorrow starts my five day trip, and I'm gonna be hurtin the next couple days

What's your firewater of choice?

I hear that. The lack of a hangover that you get from better stuff when you're waking up at 0330 is worth every dime

    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .
    • Spotted it on the way back from getting wood and tried to sneak up on it.

    • How in the world did this advertisement not get zapped?
    • Look great but the page is horrible, anybody figure out the price? The one in the video looks like a buzz bait, do they come in different tails or all the tails come with?  Anybody speak Japanese?
