Based on what I saw this weekend I believe we definitely have a huge batch of new birds in the Lake Erie Marsh Zone. Muddy Creek Bay and some of the adjacent marshes were absolutely filthy with ducks on Saturday. Clouds of birds that were simply immeasurable in size. With the overnight temps in the teens this week I don't think the areas of flooded corn are going to have level of attraction that they normally do. If that's the case, the birds should be moving up-country to hit the recently harvested corn fields south of the LEMZ very soon. I love hunting the marshes, but I'll take a field hunt over a water hunt any day of the week. So far, I like how things are shaping up.
