When You Are Duck Hunting Sometimes The Weather Does Not Act In Your Favour!!
When you are duck hunting rarely will daily weather provide perfect hunting conditions. Too hot, too cold, too windy, too still: It’s always something.
When it is to warm and sunny birds are in more of a lazy mode, they do not eat or drink much just kind of hang around. Calling them is a good way to get their attention. If you do get their attention finish the call with a lonesome hen.
Cloudy days are different again everything is gray and muted. Using a variety of different decoys especially shovelers makes for a good addition because they will be more visible.
Cold weather makes the birds tend to stay on the water longer it can make it for a later hunt. High carbo foods become critical for the birds during cold snaps. This can be when you get the best field hunts. Ducks will come into the corn fields all day then head back for water and then come right back to the field again.
