So... I was in AR for the last weekend, and we were sitting around a nice, big fire, doing a little drinking and chewing the fat, telling lies and the such. My buddy mentioned "Herman the German", and it made me think of this post. He had some good stories of the guy. Said he was out one day, no ducks were flying, and he was at a boat launch talking with some other guys that frequented that place, when they heard shots. Shortly after, Herman came walking up with a bunch of (around 10-15) sea gulls he had smoked on the water. :lol:

Yes, I meet Herman a couple of times on Dove Hunts in the MudCreek management area corn fields in the mid 70s,
He shot a very cool looking Over and under Shotgun for Doves.
He knew some of the Fathers of some of kids that I went to High school with.
Remember, I went to school with the kids of the Von Braun era Rocket scientists
I never knew that he hunted Ducks at Wanville.

2 Reasons that I know of for the Lack of Mallards at Wanville and other Parts of Jackson county.

1. Poor planting of Corn on the Management areas and on Private fields.
2. Change in Migration patterns of the Mallards because of the "Better" food management on the BIG Refuges and the dramatic increase in Rice Farming along both sides of the Mississippi River.

IF they would do a better job of planting at Wanville (CORN) the Local Mallards would still provide some good shooting there.

GOD Bless you
