There were at least 15,000 brant in the area but not a lot of other waterfowl. We saw a few bufflehead and a few black duck but not much else.
We bagged a couple of brant and bufflehead.
It was a beautiful day but pretty cold. Jim had to break ice with a big ax in order to launch our boat in the morning.
We set out our decoys and waited on the birds. There were a lot of birds flying but not many coming to the decoy. I think there are just so many brant around that they are used to landing with hundreds and not interested in a dozen decoys. We had some passing shots and it was a good morning on the water.
Another memorable day of hunting.
