Taken Dream Ducks

Postby Benelli Slinger » Fri Oct 07, 2005 3:23 pm

was just wondering how many out there have killed some rare or prized ducks, im fairly new to duck hunting so i have a long list of ducks to kill but heres some of the rare/odd or whatever ducks ive killed

4 drake woodies
1 speck
1 banded canada
1 drake redhead
and many mallards, teal, gadwall, wigeon, and other lesser ducks

i still need to get my hands on a drake penny, a drake canvasback, a nice drake black duck, a banded greenhead and lots more.

Stouff,

You can come down here to redneck country (TN) and kill plenty. Heck, we take turns kill'n em during duck season. They're some of da best eating there is. If you're ever in da lower part of da lower 48 let me know, I'd enjoy watch'n you shoot at em. :toofunny:

yep the woodies are on almost every pond near my house, lots of forest around here. We shoot so many, there like teal, you don't mind if you shoot one or two but usually hold out for others.....
My goal in life is to be as good of a person my dog already thinks I am.

yeah they are pretty but like UT said they are everywhere. They are enjoyed on a slow day. They are by far my favorite fowl to eat.

2 Wood duck bands
First pintail had a band
Double banded greenhead
Banded green head
Banded mallard hen
Banded widgeon my second widge taken had a band

Killed a mixed duck: look like cross between mallard and a gadwall but not sure.

My dreams these days are in the ocean shooting eiders, scoters and the other saltwater trophies. I've taken most of the rest in prime condition but among my favorites was a pintail/mallard hybrid I killed awhile back. That was an exciting day. I'm jealous of the wood duck though. I've killed several but never a full color bull like that!

Dream ducks are definitly #1 a Harlequin hands down, would love to go shoot all 3 drake scoters and a nice eider shoot on the sea, shot 2 scoters in 12 seasons but we never ever get them around here very rare, and also a oldsquaw, which I am headed to Canada in 2 weeks so hopefully I can bag me a nice drake for the wall!Even made 3 olds drake dekes for the trip :thumbsup:
