Default wind and rain

will ducks move in 35+mph wind. I would like to go hunting tomorrow but they are expecting 35mph wind with gusts in the 45-50 range. If so, do you have any pointers on things I should do differently than a normal setup.


thanks

Chris

Default RE: wind and rain

In my experience only sea Ducks and divers do move in that kind of wind on a consistant basis. On days when the wind is howling i usually leave the decs at home if jump shooting is an option. Many puddlers like mallards seem to fly to small creeks or very small potholes especially if they are surrounded by vegetation( the thicker and nastier the cover the better). If you are hunting with two people and know the geography of a good creek try to put a squeeze on, just make sure where the other person is for safety reasons.
