Of course you're right Bob. I guess I was thinking Mass. The black/mallard in my picture was shot in NY and I'm not sure what it counts as there.

What's the verdict in NY?

you need to deal with some CT COs.............ny COs are way laid back and easy to get along with..(at least the ones i have met)

many CT co's assume you have committed a crime and its their job to figure out what it was.....


i see the federal warden a few times a year in CT..i thin ill put this question to him and see what his reply is.

of course that does nothing to prevent a CT co from issueing a ticket the very next day for the same thing.

and you are right..how you interact with the COs goes a long way to making everything pan out good......BUT its NOT A SURE THING...........

its like there is a quota in CT.....

Ill get checked once a year maybe in NY

i get checked almost EVERY trip in CT

Just to throw in a good word for the CT DEEP, I had a CO pull up next to me in Kent on Saturday as I was loading stuff back into my car after an upland hunt. He was as pleasant as could be, asked me about my hunt, about my dog... could have been just another hunter. Never asked to see my license.

just sayin

I was on the Stanley side going duck hunting, and some one on the other side pushed a big buck across the river...looked like a horse wading the river!!!!!!!!

No, not me. But there was a guy hunting a pack of beagles. One of them got separated from the pack and came trotting down the road towards me. He was friendly and would heel. He had two phone numbers on his collar... called the first one and reached the guy hunting. Heeled his dog back towards him until he could hear the pack and the owner, and off he went. Texted with the guy later... he asked me if i wanted to buy the dog... lol.. guess he wasn't too happy with him.

I don't see any white above the speculum, so I'd call it a black if you're in CT.

Where's Bob when we need him?

I would say its a black, just surprised out out teal colored the feathers are compared to the blue on a hybrid.

Don't see any white, but can't really see the black above the speculum.

i dont think id try to judge a black-mallard-hybrid, based just on the COLOR of the speculum. I remember seeing purples, blues and the teal colored specs....a lot just depends on the angle of the photo and the amount of light that hits it..

based on that picture.....seems hard to call it anything but a black
