September wood ducks are set in their ways. They know where they want to be, and they plan on getting there early. The morning flight usually won’t last a full hour—but if you’re in the right place, you might see hundreds of ducks in the air. This time of year, woodies are creatures of habit. So long as they have food and security, they will pile into the same hidden, swampy honey holes day after day. If you can crack the code to their daybreak routine, you can pack an entire morning’s worth of action and shooting into 30 intense minutes.
