Anyone ever seen or killed any Pintails in the central or western part of the state? Just curious :thumbsup:

Killed one in Butner several yrs ago. I had a client bring one from there also. Had another client bring one from the Fuquay area and another from Sampson Co. Most of the pintails I have mounted over the years have come from Hyde Co (Mattamuskeet & Ocracoke) and I have had many come in from JM Futch & Pamlico Point areas.

Killed one in Surry County a few years ago on a private pond. Usually about 90% of what we see is wood ducks and mallards. Have also seen snow geese and specks after a big storm blew through. Didn't kill any but they did stay around a couple of days.

Got one on Norman this year, male. Not a great one but still a pintail. First time I even seen one on LKN. Outside of Mallards, I heard there are redheads but I have never seen one. I know there are woodies and I have seen both merganzers and buffleheads so they are there, just not in a huge supply and only at certain times.
