Hoping to follow up on the previous day’s hunting success, I took Elettra and Mia on an afternoon hunt. Although we had a brief respite from the deep freeze (last night’s temp dropped to -17), the wind chill was still in single digits.
There was only one other hunter and he had already claimed the blind that I wanted, so I took Mia and Elettra up to the duck blinds on the bluffs. It didn’t matter since few ducks were flying, but what few ducks there were, they chose to fly over whichever blind I was not in.
So I switched blinds about every 20 minutes or so, partially to keep Mia and Elettra from getting bored, and partially to keep them moving so they wouldn’t get too cold.
I gave up on the hunt after several hours. While driving home I briefly considered hunting some warm water springs, but then decided I wasn’t really in the mood to clean any ducks that I might get.
