Thanks for the insult friend. Just about every other duck is listed specifically in the fed regs. Sorry I wanted to make sure I dont go to jail for shooting the wrong thing. Cant understand why everyone on this forum has to talk so much crap its a worthless waste of time to read all the bs that goes on most of the time. Some people actually share knowledge and experience others just want to try to show how "awesome" they are. Are we here for the good of the sport or is this frigin facebook?........... :fingerhead: Here's your sign!

I realize the regs are fed. I realize a gadwall is a duck. I realize you can shoot 6 ducks. I just saw the first gadwalls I have ever seen where i hunt in 6 years. I was just looking to verify that I was not somehow overlooking something. Next time how about sayin "6, Good Luck... Jack!" Is that too much to ask?

QuackYak, its 6 on Teal, Gadwall, Wigeon, Ringnecks and Shovelers. There are some smart asses on here but not as bad as on SCDUCKS! God help you if you ask a "dumb" question! Most of the punks are kids, so go figure.

To be specific, it is six on:
gadwall
blue wing teal
green wing teal
bufflehead
ruddy duck
ring neck
shoveler
widgeon


The question that earned you a "here's your sign" was "can you shoot em?".

That is all.

There is according to the dictionary :grooving:

Hey, Saltwater Ass. Widgeon is an alternative and archaic way of spelling the word Wigeon! Google it! See which way comes up first. That is all!!

"Can't we all just get along"

I call them cotton tops or baldpates anyway, just to confuse people. :smile: :smile:
