1 Can
1 Red
1 Pintail
1 Woodie
1 Widgeon
1 Black
1 Mallard

Naturally all are fully plummed drakes. :thumbsup: But I can only shoot 6 here.

And I've shot 8 Greenheads in a day before in MB :smile:

7 male Pintails, have never shot one. Did get 10 male Bluebills one morning back in the heyday of the early 70's. Point system was kinda neat, made you be real selective.

donell, if you shot it as your last duck you were still legal. The game wardens would stick a thermometer up it's butt to check the temp. to see when you shot it.

Hens were 90 pts back then so you could shoot 2, but very few would even consider it. Tended to chase the 10 pointers and that changed yearly. There were so many 'bills back then that we had a 10 day(?) bonus season on some waters after the regular one, think it was a 6 or 7 bird limit. Don't think I saw 10 'bills total on the same waters last year.

Mine would be:
Pintail
BWT
Banded Mottled
Cinnamon Teal
Wood Duck
Canvasback

(all good lookin drakes!)

I'll probably only get a chance at 3 of those this year. But realistically, any 6 ducks are good with me. I'm not picky.
