I'll let you know I'm going to head out to my buddies ranch and try and shoot some birds. I should do pretty good assuming the river isn't frozen yet!! It was six degrees this morning!!

I've gotten out a few times but its been kind of slow. Drew #20 at sac the other day and ended up with a 3 bird average with 3 other guys in the blind. Would have been a lot more if we knew how to shoot. There were a ton of birds. With the weather movin in next week it should start pickin up here pretty soon. Good Luck!

ya when i went out wed i should have had a limit within the first 30 min but i prolly shot the worst i have ever shot and only came out with 3. and it didnt help that some jerk off parked his bike in the middle of the road instead of in the grass or somethin so it wasnt exposed. i couldnt figure out why ducks would b locked up 300 yards away flying right at me and right when they hit the road they would flare. then i went to get my cart and i found it just laying there i was soooo mad but what can u do

Dkhuntr25,

I hunt all of the refuges in the grasslands. I have been shooting ducks and geese there since 1989 so I know them well. Yep on the yelling...people just don't have the respect for other hunters:confused-yellow: and they think they own the refuge. I tend to like hunting refuges with assigned blinds so I don't have to put up with the riff raff but if I can't I'll hunt free roam but walk as far away from the parking lots as possible to get away from jerks:moon: period.

There are blinds on San Luis and I have a map showing them but it's mad rush to get to them because they are not assigned. Send me your email and I'll send you a pdf file of the map.

Went out jumpshooting ducks/pheasants....Not a single duck to be found under the 3+" of ice on the ponds and rivers. Guess my duck season is over (its supposed to be negative for the next several days!!) hopefully we get some snow to push the geese in to my hunting areas!!
