    I take no credit for coining that term.

    When I was teaching the duck hunting workshop with Biologist RB, he spoke of this occurring during that time of year.

    The way he explained it was the ducks "pulse" back from the southern ends of the flyways.

    The flocks just continue to get smaller as the travel south just as they continue to get bigger as they fly back north

    One hundred ducks fly south, 10 stop in NC leaving 90, 10 stop in SC leaving 80 & so on & so forth.

    If yo can't believe a double Master degreed biologist that got his thesis in the migrations of canvasbacks, who can you believe?

Never seen any poop or pee in them,nor a bunch of girls complain about them.We kept that little secret amongst us girls for yrs without any disturbance.Boy o boy the fishin was good back up in that canal...it's all over FS now for everyone to enjoy. Haven't seen those 3 in the park for yrs?

    Sorry I'm not buying it I don't care if he was Carl Sagan. I got my degree hunting these ducks in this area for 30yrs. Those trophy teal reverse migrating in april and may sure missed the bus didn't they?

    seeing that they're all approaching the century mark, I don't think they've been dragging canoes in and out of the back of Flamingo.

    And the whiner extraordinaire, binellishtr, calling other people complaining girls........priceless.

    Flip lives up by T-ville...He's not going to be making many trips down there.....and when he goes I'm sure he'll go with his buddy John D who is one of the premier backcountry guides.

    For actually knowing what happens outside in the marsh...I like the guy who's out there every day over the " I've got an advanced degree" guy.

    Ron is a good guy...and knows alot about mottled ducks for sure...but that whole "pair bonding" and "reverse migration in January".... It just isn't "real world". There are more birds in Florida the first two weeks in February than anytime of the year...which is good since that is when we have our youth hunt weekend...which is where our next crop of waterfowlers will be recruited from....it's awesome that they get to tear into them at the peak!

    Hey,...I'm no "guide" and hold no degrees in anything but I am an " anecdotal evidence technician"....so I may be wrong about just about everything that I have seen for the past 48 seasons that I've hunted ducks...
