The seasoned hunter would not kill a merg or ruddy duck, and at least in my area, buffle heads and spoonies are left for kids. That being said, if you like the fishy taste of that junk, have at it! Anyway the most important thing is that you are doing what you want, don't worry about what anyone else is getting, they are probably lying anyway lol.
I don't entirely agree with all that, but I get your point and it's a good one. I just think the more experience you have the more luck you make, and you start shooting more doubles and triples, or even lucky double kills, when it counts on good eatin' puddlers.
But doing what you want, being out there on your own... that's the important part.
My rule is use what you kill, honor the animal first and then yourself.
And people braggin about making limits by 9am and all that ain't very cool, and like jonny said, they're probably making it all up.
