I am beginning to feel as though Southern Indiana and duck season is an oxymoron. This is the second year in a row with little or ducks. We saw limited numbers of waterfowl, plenty of local geese but very few migrators of any kind. Hope everyone elses season has been better than here, sure aint been much to brag about. Sorry for the whining but today is the last day and the freezer contains zero duck breasts.

Not cool, the warm weather is keeping most of the birds close to their home range in my opinion. You're not the only one.

Man, I looked and looked this year for something worth hunting! I found nothing. I mean none. Zero ducks. You are right. They need to move the season back. Two years in a row, and ZERO migratory birds for us.

Man ours has been horrible down here in Bama to. We've got a few birds, but they've been here a while, and know the drill pretty well, me and my crew are scraping out a few here and there, but its not been a season to write home about for sure, we just didn't get the weather we needed this year.

When your in the turkey woods from sun rise to sun set, wear out a pair of boots, and 4 cushions every time you go you know you gave it all you had.

I hunt around Oxford, OH which is 2 minutes form the southern Indiana border and we had a great season. I seen tons of migrating ducks from jan. 12 till then end up our season which was the 29th. i shot a few mergansers and scaups which are def. migrators and there was lots of other great lake divers around. migrating geese was only for around a week then was slow but seen most migrating ducks in awhile, and great shooting.

Just too nice up here. I live in Michigan and it was one of the mildest winters ive ever seen. The great lakes never froze, snow was minimal. We had birds around all winter long. With food and water they really had no reason to migrate as far as normal. Had an awesome season up here. Had a great goose hatch, its going to be a killer season. Molt migrants have been coming through steady for the last the last three weeks to a month. Cant wait for early goose season in September.

Good Luck huntin'...Adam
