With start of the second season, duck numbers are down. BUT!!! Our goose numbers are STRONG!!! With cooler weather arriving next week, we are hoping that duck and goose numbers increase!
From all of us here at The Elms, we would like to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving! First season is slowly coming to a close. Duck numbers are declining but speck and snow numbers are staying strong. With colder weather up north, we are looking forward to the next big push.
The clock is ticking! Season will be here in a matter of hours. Blinds are brushed, pits have been pumped, fields have been flooded, and birds are in the area and on the move! We have been seeing good numbers of Mallards, Gadwall, and Pintails. We have also been seeing other puddle ducks as well along with big numbers of snows and specks. We have been doing a few last minute preparations and we are ALL excited and anxious for Saturday!
