Just got my first Mallard ever. We started flooding our duckpond and went down to see what was coming in. The weather has been so dry here we haven't had the water to flood either pond. The pond has been flooded about 5 days and we only saw two ducks over it that morning. We hit the calls and they turned and came in. I dropped a big ole green head. It is exciting down here where there are only wood ducks and a couple of teal seen on a normal morning. Maybe this pond will be different. It is the first one built in a open field instead of swamp. Just got kind of excited by it.
