We went out today and other then a cold morning the hunt went well. We ended up with 2 full colored drake pintails, 1 full colored drake shoveler, 1 full colored drake ringneck, and a pair of greenwing teal.

Screech, Your walls must be covered with ducks by now. Seems like every other post you have you are putting one on the wall. I am rather jealous of those pintails. Rarely do I ever get to shoot those fancy birds. Congrats on the very colorful bag.

Also 11/20/11. We were goose hunting and saw a flock of MONSTER geese to our right and when they got closer we realized they were cranes so we starting making the crane noise on our goose calls and they circled for about 5 minutes and then landed in our back goose spread. Big birds :biggrin:

I'm a little jealous of the pintails. I only killed one laast season

Speaking of cranes, can any waterfowl we shoot them? Or do you have to have a special license. Also how do you call them in with a goose call?

You have to get the license number for them when you do your HIP Survey. To call them you just roll a note on your goose call on and off

Hey duckman, Is the sand hill crane the only tall goofy looking bird around here? I jumped one on Sunday that I could've shot but it was a little far away. Anyway, it kinda looked liked a blue heron? Do they live around here? I wasn't sure if it was a SHC or some other bird that is like protected.

Blue Herons are big and goofy and live around ponds. THat's probably what you saw. Sandhills are usually in flocks

I think they are like any other birds, I have seen SHC in pairs and by themselves earlier in the season. Later in the year i think is when you see the big groups more often. I have video of a few thousand that were in a flock in ND over the first week of November. We came over a little hill and they all blew out of this little bottom, it was amazing. To hear that many sandhills making noise and wings all at once was pretty cool. Good luck gettin' your paws on one they are pretty cool birds! (Not to mention, "ribeye in the sky")
