Santee Delta duck hunt

The next to the last weekend of duck season brought high hopes for the arrival of new migratory ducks. Blue-winged and Green-winged teal reports in the Delta have been fairly steady lately, while the 'big ducks' have yet to show up in great numbers. With overcast skies, a gentle wind and a 40 degree temperature - waterfowlers set their blocks out in likely locations and hunkered down waiting for legal shooting time and a chance to make the most of their opportunity. It is safe to say that memories were made for more than one Lowcountry outdoorsman when their game bags were filled with legal limits of ducks and the experience of duck hunting was shared with friends.
