You consider wigeon and GWT to be nasty ducks?

You talkin taste or quality as far as sporting purposes? You would get two different answers.

Wigeon might be my favorite species!! And you're always killing a few nice wigeon drakes... Solo hunts can be so fun or so miserable!

Well done!
Make em hate it!!

GWT are one of the best tasting ducks and the little devils are fun to shoot.

Solo hunts are like therapy for me after taking out a group of sports all week.

GWT are great during teal season, widgeon are great during the first split, by this time of year it should be mallards and pintails, i'm just not finding them.

This rain should help a lot.
