yeah he's real photogenic... He is an old grouch and only 2... I can only wonder what he will be like at 7, 10 year old etc.... He's all business in the blind though..

good looking birds 98!!

still waiting to get into the mallards myself. i've been out 3 times with limits each time, but no mallards yet to speak of. lots of teal and widgeon.

hoping to get some big ol' greenies on saturday....i know they're out there.

I figured they wouldn't be coming, so I took the three teals and a widgeon first thing this morning.. Then I passed on teal because I wanted to find a duck to eat lol...

Today there was hundreds of greenheads, I could have limited 10 people. But I only had three left in my limit so I landed a few and made the dog learn patience while they swam around. Picking up decoys I had at least 25 land that were shootable with me in the deeks..They have bright feet on em, looks like they are heading your way swampy!

98, where you hunt, do you see/ get many (or any) banded ducks?

If so, how often?

I seen many greenheads killed last year, not a single band... About an hour from here they have quite a few on a reservation shop, but to be honest I have NEVER got a band. Last year my dog probably retrieved 300 ducks, not one was banded....

nice limit, the mallards here are pretty decoy shy after being shot at on the opener.
