Unfortunatly, I saw ducks but over on the next peice of property! This was a prospecting trip for me and a new piece of property. The creek has a nice deeper section with GREAT currant so it should not freeze up quickly. I will be back. I'm told by the landowner that there is alot of human activety on the weekends and midweek should be better. Thursday is supposed to be rainy so I will keep you posted. I heard very little shooting in the area. I'll let you know how the Republic Metallic Cartridge 10 ga load does.
