Clear blue sky with 15-25mph winds out of the west. (Wind blowing Blaze ear in pic. LOL) Pond looked like it was going to white cap at one point. Not as high a volume of birds as in previous hunts. Had some come in and leave out just before legal. Only saw "maybe" 20 shootable ducks but the ones that did give us a look did 180's over the decoys and hung up in the wind. A beautiful thing to see for sure.
