What a contrast the hunters bring to the usually very calm and peaceful waterfowl management site. I have never seen so many people or cars at one time. You had to wait in a line to even get into the bird refuge.
The hunters were very busy going about their “hunter business.” It was fascinating to watch. I could tell that they took their hobby very seriously. Most of them wouldn’t even look at the “lowly photographer” that seemed to be disturbing them and asking questions. In the past, I usually go during the week and in the late afternoon. I have never gone to the bay in the morning and on opening day of duck season. It was a great day for human interest photos.
