Got a work mate that ended up with a sad opening,He had been feeding his pond auto feeders going off in the morning,So come to Friday of opening,He waited to the birds left the pond,that was about 5pm, which was holding about 80 odd ducks,then he set decoys out and set up,Arrived Saturday morning with two others,They only shot one duck for the opening morning!!,But got anther 10 that evening,Anyone thoughts on why the birds never came back??,He had been watching his pond so the birds were arriving about 7.30ishĖ9ish am.Or is it ducks just being ducks?

as opening everywhere i dont think it matters if you feed or not for birds to return . opening is like no other for the ducks nothing could be considered the norm . many shooters out ducks get shot before coming back in. Maybe after opening youll see them return as the pressure from hunters and disruption drops off.

My thoughts were,they werenít distributed and everything was done like normal they would have come back in the morning??.Or is it because itís late in the season and birds seem to be using the paddocks now with the feeding out of stock that is going on they have found a better place,
