I like puddlers. My favorite would be Pintails. They are just so cool looking when they come cruising into the decoys.

My favorite duck has got to be the American Widgeon. I love the color scheme of a fall plumage drake and they make one of the coolest calls of any duck. They also react to a call better than a lot of birds and decoy very well. So, the Widgeon has got to be one of my favorite ducks! The Canvasback comes in a close second. :thumbsup:

greenheads (mallard) are my favorite duck, looking for the curls.

Carp.... :umm: you and your sawbill fetish..... :umm:

I thought is was just a passing phase but ..no....you are truely in love ... well I don't know what to say other than give me a call I will point you the way I know where a bunch of the elusive beast have been hangin' lately.

You may even be able to as you have said in the passed be able to get them to "stick in the mud like lawn darts".

By the way my favorite duck is the mallard for the way they respond to calls, and the wary nature of the bird. I am also quite fond of wigeons, pintails, gadwalls, and the ever shifty greenwing teal.

Bret, As Utahsprig always says "Do it for the pup" :mrgreen: Honestly Ive shot only one SAWBILL in the last three years. Most puddle ducks I really enjoy. Divers I like redheads, scaup and canvasbacks. :thumbsup:

Hey, when ya wack one of those flying reptiles ya need an excuse. For the pup is about the best ya can do.

Bret, the whole sawbill thing started awhile back. Carp had me and the Dr. out on a hunt. We were covered in ducks, but they were all mergansers, but the good doctor filled up on them. Since then it's funny, but if there are mergansers in the area, Carp will find them (or they will find him :thumbsup: ).

Now, if we could convert him to coots, well he'd be a real waterfowler then :mrgreen: :getdown: :getdown:

Man .......... And I thought I had been dealin' with some real differant guys here. Anyway I knew it was a joke I just thought I would offer the info just in case..... because I was really starting to wonder. :salude:

I have to admit when I was younger I killed a limit or two of them myself. I even ate them all. they scare my brother half to death though He calls them devil ducks and sometimes thinks they are trying to get him with their big ugly red bill. Insanity.
It runs in the family.:help: what can I say?

Oh Carp would shoot more, but he looses it when the sawbills come in. He starts twitching, drooling and his eyes bug out. Worst case of buck fever you will ever see :toofunny: :thumbsup: I mean, usually he's a pretty good shot, but sawbills are his curse. Now myself on the other hand, well, I think I'm at 100% on sawbills, spoonies and coots. Haven't taken many shots, but when I have, well they're dead :mrgreen: Now, if he's napping or eating (generally not paying attention) you can sometimes yell "TAKE EM!!!" and he'll snap off a quick shot and roll one before he realizes what it is. Then he's done for the day, he'll just sit there and gaze at that sawbill with this far off look in his eyes (I think there's a story of some long lost love there, but he's not telling anyone the details :laughing: :laughing: :laughing: ).
