So you do a lot of diver hunting. I got out three times last year for divers. The wind was tough last year and I only have a 16 foot lowe boat. We had one awesome day on the open water 2 guys 2 drake goldeneyes, 2 drake bluebills, 3 drake oldsquaws, 2 brant, a pair of surf scoters and 4 mallards 3 drakes. It was a nice mix bag day. Thank you for the info on the Eider. I have seen a couple around but never shot one. The conneticut river is as far east as I go usually but have hunted millstone power plant area a couple of times. I have some friends who hunt RI and do well on the eiders. All my birds that I have mounted are Connecticut birds and it would be nice to get an eider here. Enjoy your summer and get ready for the next season. Also I do meet people here online and we swap hunts. Its nice to have a change of scenery sometimes I can hunt three out of my boat. I have 100 decoys for divers 25 oldsquaws, 50 bluebills, 12 cans and 18 brant. I like joining with other guys who have boats and deks. With two parties you can put out an impressive spread.
