we get a lot here in michigan on the great lakes but i usually pass on them because they are pritty stupid compared to most ducks and i dont particullary like the taste. although they dont spook very easy, there one of those ducks that dives before they fly
its here!

Nice shootin'

You got some nice birds there man! I love those drake wigeon. Its unusual to find some nice color on the birds this early, but that first cold snap we had before opening weekend kind of jump started the maturing process. I shot a really, really nice drake wigeon about 10 years ago and ended up putting it on the wall. I myself hunt in the Long Lake (McPherson County) and we shot some real nice drake redheads and canvasbacks opening weekend. I ended up putting both a red and a canvas in the freezer for the taxidermy. We should meet up sometime and blast some quackers!

Hey man...
Do you live in Aberdeen or the the area?
I know just about everyone in Aberdeen and if I don't, my father (owns the Sportsman here in Aberdeen) does. I have some out of staters coming to hunt 4 out of the next 5 weekends, but may have some time during the week. What is your name? Maybe we have met before.
