just curious as to howmany birds you shoot before you realize you dont know what your shooting, would you still post a pic if you found out you were 5 past your limit? other than that, good shooting its been a slow year.

LOL, we all at one time or another downed a bird and had to ask what it was. I usually carry an ID book with me should I not know what I just killed. I have a diver and puddle duck guide they have about 6 or 8 of the common ducks and fold up about the size of an index card. You still cuttin' em. or has it slowed up for ya?

You probably dont realize who this is, but we took a class in school and had to identify all the waterfowl species. Probably the only thing I really paid attention to during class. Thats class has helped out alot with the past 15 years of waterfowling. There's a good book called, "Ducks at a Distance" thats good at identify ducks and geese. Its small and it'll fit into any blind bag.

Yeah still going at it, went today with a few guys. We shot one black, missed few blacks and mallards. Had drake pintail circle a few times but wouldn't finish. Scouted yesterday and thought we'd do a little better. How about you?


Lord






Watch out people the internet police are out!!!

HA HA wazzup dude, nothin much fallin into my spreads at all. I meant no ignorance to ya at all dude. My buddy and his friend were were 1 or 2 short of a limit today and I'll let ya guess where they were if you had a pintail workin they were probably the place you were. Havent been doingmy normal L.C. thing this year with low numbers of birds been keeping the boat home a little more and staying closer to home and the murderkill around Doc. Mastens property hoping to pick a few off but just about everything flies right over. It sucks with this being the last season I can probably hit it hard at least for a few years since the baby is due in April. I was trying to think if I knew anyone with the initial KC and I couldnt piece it together. Going to the Murderkill again tomorrow hopefully the Doc. has some frsh birds wanting to put their ***'s in the cold river and hang out with my dekes. Shoot me a pm and maybe we can get together and bust'em up. I looked at that Ducks at a distance and I'lll be damned if when them birds a coming in I got time to figure out whats what by refering to those silohuetts they printed on them pages. As bad as it sounds I think I dropped one duck this last split. We did much better the first true season and early teal.

No offense taken, glad to hear your still going at it. I'll shoot you a pm or give you a call. Think I still have your number. I'll give you a little better report of what going on. I'm going to hit it hard the last two weeks. I might be able to get you a few birds before the season ends.

Who cares if it's his first post? He's dead-on in regards to his assessment.

...what would you say if it was this guy's first time in a deer stand and he rocked a lost golden retriever in the woods thinking it was a yearling doe? It all boils back to identifying your target.

I read all the posts - I'm referencing you all but throwing out the guy's point because it was his first post. There are plenty on here, me included, who've probably forgotten more about waterfowl hunting than you've learned.

...oh but since post count is what matters, you take the cake there topwater.

Keep on shooting and not knowing your target! We'll be reading about you in the Enforcement Blotter.
