I get the first post in the waterfowl section. I have done a little early scouting and have seen some nice ducks up in the white mountains. I saw a handful of mallards on the rim this weekend but resident ducks dont really count. The early migrators like gaddies and cinnies are here already. I find that the best way to locate new duck hunting spots is to go fishing. Something about water that attracts waterfowl.
