It seems everyone has a special soft spot for the wood duck.
everyone was of the mind to pass on taking woody afew threads back. until one looks at the results of the refuges over the weekend
Total of 214 woodies taken on the refuges.
as I thought: wood ducks were the #2 bird both Sat and Sun at Sutter and LDC and the #2 at howard slough on sun.
it seams that east side of the buttes is loaded with em. I noticed loads
of them here at home also in my last couple of weeks of scouting.
Just curios why some guys on here would have no problem taking 4 cacklers but would not take 7 woodies?
After seeing these numbers and the number of birds I saw at sutter over the weekend I think I'll start chasin them again.
And yes I have put up boxes. and mallard nest also so I wont feel bad at all about taken some.
