Surf Scoter

Postby oneshotkill » Mon Nov 20, 2006 9:02 pm

I have so many surf and white-wing scoter on the beach by my house that it is making me sick I have shot a couple but all I want is some puddle ducks! I could easily get my limit every day But I have no desire. No offence but I do not like sea ducks! I will send them to anyone as long as you send some puddle ducks my way.

I've gotten a few greenheads at the mouth of the Skagit lately, South fork.

One day it's good, then their all gone. We need a some colder weather up north, then a good freeze and some more wind and the ducks will be in. Seems through the years early season is good, then theres a lull in the action then the Northern ducks come in.

As far as Scoters, if you shoot young ones they tast pretty good.

I'm in Anacortes and have enough ducks from yesterday thank you. Got 1 hen and one nice drake mallard, two pins, one was a big drake. We're going out in the AM to.

Isn't it a strange world, just last weekend my bud shot a white wing scooter and we all thought of it as somewhat of a prize. It is a handsome bird and he is getting it mounted. We have all kinds of mallards but very few white wing scooters, he wouldn't have traded a limit of greenheads for it. From a distance scooters don't look to cool but in the hand I thought it was beautiful, and it had blue eyes and the bill was the colors of a woodduck and a very peculiar shape to it.
I'm not as good as I once was, but I'm as good once as I ever was.

I live on penn cove. Follow senic heights down to the water and there they are. You have to go to the left of to the right to be safe but I have gotten very close the them on many occasions. I also have a few wighte wing scoter, and the occasional buffulhead.
