And Stickler, I know plenty of wildlife biologists/technicians that can't differentiate b/t a mottled, mallard hen, and black duck. Sorry, without photographic evidence I don't buy it.

I'm with you on that. That's why I posted the snip from Bird Banding Lab. I also know the difference between them. He said his Black was banded but was never turned in????

That would look good on the wall! I know some fellas up this way that speak of getting some blacks, but I can't confirm or deny without seeing in person...

My pops got a ruddy this year, and being old school as he is, that bad boy got plucked clean!

I'll be putting the hurt on some Argentinian doves here in a few weeks, but I'm pretty sure there the same as the doves we have in these parts...plan on bagging some perdiz (sp?) while were down there as well.
Sorry folks, park's closed...

I believe it is, but we had to choose, so majority ruled. Most of the duck hunting is around Buenas Aires, and with the dove lodge being in Cordoba, we just won't have time to shoot everything. Plans are if we go back next year, to plan an extra day for a good duck shoot.

Some who can find em...

You don't just "find" blacks west of the Mississippi, you get lucky and they fly into your spread. It's the same thing as someone killing a cinnamon east of here.

And if you'll post pictures of hens and spoonies, you've got pictures of this supposed black duck.

I just let you guys ramble on .

Never once did I say the banded one was from this state.
QA , have seen friends kill hens here . I find it funny you haven't killed one but in a small amount of locations but are an expert?

I did mention some good advice on turkey but your crazy as hell if you think i'll give you duck info. Maybe wild goose info , as in wild goose chase.

I have plenty of ducks without pics ? would you like to see all the bbl reports of ducks I don't have pics of ? stickler ?

I know you didn't. That's why I asked. Black ducks interest me a lot...everything about them. So where did you kill this banded black duck? And what was the banding info? Just wondering state banded, state recovered, and age? PM me if you don't want it all across the internet, but everyone already knows, if you want to kill a black duck just go to New England. Calm down, it's just the internet

And I know how to ID a black duck better than most from studying up on them so much. 97% of people see these birds and their answer is black duck.

I would just like to see photographic evidence of a black duck killed in NM. You say you've killed one/have seen them killed in this state. I'm just asking you to prove it.

And I appreciate the turkey info, btw.

Jaime,

I killed a black duck in NM on post last season. Collateral damage when I shot that cinnamon. It was all black with a white bill and greenish chicken feet. Definitely a NM black duck.

Y'all ever get along on here?

Now, top this.
This past season, I shot a rare Nigerian black cawswan!
It kept circling my spread and me making a loud ruckus. Wasn't real sure what it was, but it looked like a funky duck thing to me, so it caught a load of 2's!
Blew off a leg, and while looking it over and googling, I noticed a wear spot at the spot that blew off. A BAND MARK!!!!
I lost a band. .....

That's hunting, I guess.

Laid it down outside my blind and a golden eagle swooped in and made off with it.
Sorry, no pics.

Of course we get along...like a perfectly dysfunctional family. There's nothing wrong with calling BS on someone. If it's not BS, then just prove it. Simple as that.

Besides, if all we did was hold hands around the campfire and roast marshmallows while we sang songs, it would get real boring real quick.
