Arctic Blast Brings the Ducks to Texas
The cold weather is expected to hang around for another week, which should be good news for hunters. Reports from DU biologists and other hunters in the northern states indicate that this brutal polar blast got the ducks moving out of Canada and the border states and heading south.
Remember to be safe and to watch your retriever closely in these early hunts in the cold since our dogs still have their summer coats. I would encourage everyone to have your dog wear a neoprene vest. Kyle Krause said his champion retriever Stone was shivering after his many retrieves due to his summer coat. Kyle had a towel nearby to keep him as dry as possible in between retrieves, which is a great idea.
