Cans

Anybody get any Cans this season? Up here in PA, we don't really see them. I know that the Chesapeake was once the best place for Canvasbacks. Thinking of going out to Wisconsin this fall to hunt them, but the cost is really high with plane tickets, hotel, etc. If you have luck with Cans, maybe we can exchange hunts. I hunt from SE PA to NE PA, every weekend and sometimes during the week. Mostly lakes. We have lots of geese too. We get mallards, buffleheads, woodies and ringnecks. Also grouse and woodcock. If anybody is interested, hit me up. Might be pretty nice for both of us to have a hunting buddy out of state, but not too far away. We get ducks before you do, so there's always the opportunity to exploit an earlier season hunt.

We used to see a ton of cans when the season was closed but since they opened it they have been scarce - - - figures - - -

I have never hunted there but there seem to be quite a few holding in the shallows just South of the Potomac River / U.S.301 bridge.
They mix with other divers there - - -

It is in the gunning rig zone and you only need to be 400 yards offshore.

But you do have to have a Maryland resident on board - -- -

Gotta be in northern VA this weekend. I have to cross the Potomac. I'll stop to have a look.
