Teal

I hunted the first three days of the early goose season in Dorchester Co.We saw quite a few teal,even had two land in with the goose dekes. I will be there for the teal opener.I know teal dont stay too long when the temps drop and we had some low temps for this time of year.Last year was my first time hunting them,so Im no expert by any means.Are they still around in good numbers or am I being too paranoid...lol

I say go for it. But personally I have never seen or killed a teal in MD during the season. But we killed a ton in Saskatchewan last year in Oct so I'm sure there's still some passing through going south. Good luck!

Was planning to go to fishing bay Saturday, got the boat and decoys ready but all my buddies crapped out on me. Not sure if I am going now. I was told that the blue wings already came through last month.

How did opening day go? Was all set to get out to fishing bay and had a last minute job come up. I have heard there isn't many teal around now due to the cooler temps we have been having.

I went yesterday. Had about a dozen wood ducks land in the decoy spread but never saw a teal. Going out a few more time this week to see if I can spot any.

You may have a little more success asking in the official waterfowl thread. Teal is a very short season and very limiting in Maryland. https://www.mdshooters.com/showthread.php?t=213798

I was able to get out Saturday and then again today. Never saw a teal, but I have to agree. Saturday we have over a dozen wood ducks land in our spread and then today we have about 20-30 curious wood ducks flying around. I cant wait for 1st split!

Went out today at Fishing Creek no luck. Tide was way up, foot of water on a lot of the main road. Marsh was flooded. Saw quite a few teal, flocks of 50 or more, just not near us. Had a few come close and 1 over the decoys when we weren't looking.
