First Wood Duck of the season and only the 3rd since I started hunting. They have to be the prettiest duck there is! :cool:

Well I had a camo face mask on, I asked him if he wanted one and he said no. He saw the face paint with my hunting stuff and said I'll paint my face. He saw that on some duck/goose hunting videos we bought. He could have used a little more but it worked.

After a terrible marsh hunt that produced 4 birds for 2 of us and guys setting up ridiculously close to us, 40 yards no lie we headed to Erie today.
Well into my 13th waterfowling season and my 90th duck this year it finally happened, a band, a drake mallard, I still favor my divers but I'll take it, we had just got setup on a island on Erie when this drake mallard flushed from 2 feet near me from the marshgrass I pulled up piled him at no more than 10 yards, picked him up he seemed real dirty and slick, I smelled him he smelt like diesel fuel and was very scrawny but had a big thick head, then I looked and no way a band, I didn't believe it, but it is pretty worn, only make a few numbers out and barely any writing, and the band is thin, I am guessing 8years plus old, we'll see soon enough, anyhow look at the size comparison between this nice migrator and this scrawny old guy, I was quite suprised he could fly, I think I did the bird a favor though
Imagem very suprised he could even fly!

Well I did a little researching and realized wait a minute there was a oiltanker truck that spilled in downtown Toledo a few weeks ago, well it was very close to the Mighty Maumee (maybe a few hundred yards) and I have also heard most of the drainage runs into the river and several people say they saw runnoff going into the river, well this bird was shot moreless where the river hits the lake, i am thinking that this may have been cuase and I like I said I am shocked this bird could actually fly, I contacted ODNR to see if maybe they'd like to take a look at the bird, I mean oil soaked ducks in my hunting grounds kind of concerns me but i got no response :pissed:

They are not all Puddle Ducks, but the pics below are most of our duck hunts so far this season! There are a couple ducks hunts missing and a few strictly goose hunts in between.

Take Care,
