Pintail today

Postby Swanny » Tue Dec 10, 2013 6:20 pm

Went out with the dog and brother in law this morning and saw a duck several hundred yards away, called a few times and the thing b lines it to my decoy spread. This is what we ended up with. Didn't see huge numbers today, but diverse. Saw a hooded merganser, black duck, bufflehead, mallards and this guy.

Wow. My dream duck. Congrats!


So... Did you sit on it in your waders all the way home? That thing is mangled.

Feathers a bit matted after a dog retrieve and being in the boat.

I was actually surprised at how easy the feathers on the back were to mess up. Didn't take much. Late season and it's so fluffy.
