Barrows Goldeneye

Postby MountainGreenhead » Thu Jul 26, 2012 10:42 am

I thought I would post a pic I took in January of a pair of Barrows that I saw in Soda Springs. This was after the season and they were sitting on a city fishing pond. :mad:
A friend and I have done some studying and we think we know where we can find some late season this year. It would be pretty cool to put a Barrows on the wall this year.
Sorry the photo isn't great, it was pretty foggy that morning.

R they rare over the hill? They are fairly common over on this side of the hill on the rivers Dec on. Just gotta pick them out from the 10,000 commons.

We've shot a few up here in the Panhandle but they are not very common. Lots of common goldeneyes around in the late season, though.
