Guess What it's Cold!



Sitting on the boat in NYC this time of year is a blessing and a curse.On one hand the scenery of the frozen boats is awesome and the work is generally easy,knock on wood.On the other hand I wish I was home duck hunting.Seriously any other time of year I don't mind being on the boat but this time of year kills me.I missed the bird migration last year and it seems I may miss it again this year.As I'm sure everyone on the East Coast has realized it's freaking cold out.I mean ridiculously cold for this time of year.During a recent conversation with my brother,Swamp Thing,I noticed that at this time last year we were hunting in zero degree temperatures in Maryland.Although the goose hunting was decent the ducks had all but bypassed the area and ended up in North Carolina and parts South.The same seems to be happening this year and it's frustrating to say the least.The past few weekends have either brought snow,gale force winds or both.With almost all of the mid Atlantic frozen the ducks have held fast but they won't for much longer.Only time will tell I suppose.This shouldn't be taken as complaining but more of an observation.In a few weeks I hope to be chasing waterfowl in Virginia and Maryland so hopefully I can make that happen.
