I was at the Redlands and I feel your pain. I had a pair of mallards working in front of me, but they were like 60 yards out. Too, far for me, but they were evidently in range for the guy that was 100 yards to the left of me to take a couple of shots. It was atleast 150 yards for him. It was one of those things that you see but don't really believe. I am going to try it during the week, maybe fewer skybusters.
