The redhead i killed was the best duck i have killed in my life, and my dad gave me his 12 1187 thats what i killed it with and when he gave it to me he also gave me the Redhead Duck Stamp of 2004-2005 i thought that was pretty cool

Its not a Red head, but I shot a hen Ringneck off an irrigation ditch here in Arizona yesterday. Don't know what she was doing there but I know what she's doing now.
Have you ever woke up one day and said. Damn when does the season start.

Dusted a scaup in a rice field while speck goose hunting earlier this january. That was a lost duck. Too bad they dont eat as good as the specks we shot that hunt.

Have shot a number of divers (Redhead, Can, 'bill, Buffy & 'eyes) over some of my high and dry puddler and goose field rigs. Fields are near a good sized river and near a large lake. They just slowly buzzed the rig to see what was going on, I guess. Curiosity killed the duck?

We get plenty of Redheads on a small lake where i live. They don't decoy well, but pass shooting em does the job. They usually come in with bluebills. I have still never even seen a canvasbask that wasnt already mounted.
If ya don't like being peppered, don't set up near my spread..!!!!!

Last monday killed another blackjack drake in a flooded rice field pit blind. This past friday morning saw one big flight of divers pass by our blind.
