Killing mallards isn't some great unattainable skill. They are not some mystical creature like the Yeti... It doesnt take much more than...

1. being in an area where mallards migrate
2. having somewhat of a minute semblance of skill blowing a duck call.
3. having enough common sense to hide out of plain sight.
4. not prematurely ejaculating in your pants when they get close and then flaring them.

Congratulations..... you too can kill mallards. that will be $60 dollars

btw.. if others dont count I guess I will start passing on the widgeon and pintails this year and shoot only greenheads. its like saying if you catch a tarpon on anything but a fly it doesnt count.

duckhunter48... what do you need a lanyard for? real jedi duckhunters call with only their mouth and hand like a indian.

seriously? bc we all know the panhandle is loaded with mallards. but to answer your question, yes. i killed 22 ducks last year. all hen woodies and 4 coots. one of the coots was banded and radio collared. if you dont believe me, i now have the radio collar on my lanyard so i can show you anytime you want.


Haha. I was just messing with yall. I'll shoot at jacks and hollywoods, i don't discriminate! But lately its been hard keeping them gosh darn goldeneyes off my deeks. Now talk about trash ducks. Them goldeneyes pour by the hundreds round here! Lol

Thus, being the most important factor... You may releive AFTER you flare them.... :thumbsup:
First shot I usually miss, the second I normally hit in the same spot, the third more or less is like a "screw that coot!"

Spotted about 10 BWT yesterday on the lake behind my condo in St. Pete! It was awesome watching them dart back and forth as they flew around the lake!

I saw 3 flocks last week, total of about 100 birds, here on the west coast. I hope they hang around another 11 days.

To all my hometown duck hunters i figured i would raise your hopes for this upcoming teal season. Im from cocoa fl and have hunted the st johns (lone cabbage area) my whole life. For the past 3 years i have been stationed atecamp lejuene nc. Which is located on the coast. The teal numbers were very high this year our opening day was sep 8 we easily shot a 3 man limit in an hour.We had a cold front hit sunday and i went out tuesday morn and managed to scrape up 4 bw with 2 guns but for the majority of the birds they have packed up and headed south. With sc opening day this weekend im assuming it will push the rest down to the fl marshes. So good luck. I will be following them down with a sc hunt this weekend and a florida hunt sept 22.

3 days of scouting the coastal areas from Melbourne to Daytona and only 10 BWT, that's not enough to keep me from the FSU V. Clemon game. Look forward to the bird count over the weekend.
