Duck Hunting Opening day in Illinois: Fowled Reality EP2


This duck hunting video showcases the start of the Fowled Reality season. It started in the summer at the state blind drawing with no success. Then, the hunting season was underway and we traveled to northern Missouri with the guys from Muddy Dog Outdoors and finally had some success duck hunting in our home state of Illinois during the south central zone opener. The weather in the early season was not great for duck hunting. We had a few cool days, but not real cold snap to start the fall. Some of the calendar migration ducks were making their way south, but not many at this point in the season. Most of what we were seeing were resident birds using the river and power plant lake. It still made a for a good opening day. We got to spend some time in the pit in a corn field next to a small flooded pothole and think about the waterfowl season to come.
