Anyone ever bag one of these drakes? I have yet to see one with a gun in my hand, but I got a spot already picked out on the wall for when I do.

:welcome: to DHC. No Ive never seen one and propably never will unless I go out with one of these northerners one day. :laughing:
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

Duck Hunting is ALL about the bag.

I've seen a few but never while gunning. That is one trophy bird I hope to harvest at some point here in New England.
