Outdoors Report - Dec. 24, 2014

Duck season opened last week, but the reports we have gotten show very poor hunting, so far, unless you enjoy shooting diver ducks. There are some geese around, but even that is spotty.
Deer hunting continues to be poor in our region    according to anecdotal reports. Your columnist has not received any reports of dead deer from disease, but biologists feel that is a variable that must be considered in the region. Squirrel and rabbit hunting reportedly are good.

Outdoors Report - Dec. 17, 2014

Duck season opens up this week, but turkey season closed last weekend for King George residents. The scouting reports for duck hunting have been slim. There are plenty of diver ducks in big flocks scattered over the lower Potomac. Where you can find water, you will find some woodies in the swamps. Puddle ducks reportedly are  in short supply locally, but the goose numbers are encouraging, though.

Duck season is closed for another week. The last few days of the season before it closed were poor. Hopefully, some birds will be migrating through by next week when the season opens again. Geese are migrating through now, and hopefully, will be more cooperative, as well, once the season opens.

Outdoors Report - December 3, 2014

Duck hunting reportedly is very poor, with the exception of diver ducks and some marshes for wood ducks. Deer hunting has become hit or miss, with hunters either having plenty of deer sightings or seeing nothing at all. Apparently, some small pockets of disease hit the region again this year, taking out some of the deer. Squirrels appear to be more abundant, or at least easier to see. Time to get out the .22-caliber rifles for some squirrel stew.

Outdoors Report - Nov. 26, 2014

The rut has waned, but some bucks are still seeking unbred does. They still will come to doe bleats and buck grunts, so keep using those calls. I tried duck hunting Saturday morning on Machadoc Creek, but no duck hunting appeared to be taking place, or other hunters were having the same experience we were  -- no birds.

Outdoors Report - Nov. 19, 2014

The rut has peaked and may be on the downhill slide. Some does are reportedly still being chased. I witnessed this Friday evening, but the main activity is certainly waning. Look for bucks to still be seeking does, but also look for does to be more interested in food now. There seem to be plenty of squirrels if you are near nut-bearing trees. Rabbits are in good supply, as well. Duck hunting was spotty, according to the reports we heard. With our rainfall being low, many swamps and sloughs are empty, causing some of us to have nowhere to duck hunt.
