Golden eyes?

Postby addictivehunter » Sun Nov 10, 2013 5:04 pm

A buddy and I were out pheasant hunting yesterday and happened to shoot a duck that we flushed off the water. I believe it's a Golden Eye. I'll get a picture soon as my buddy who took a photo sends it to me, since I didn't have a camera. I'm wondering though if anyone else has shot one or seen one here in Utah?

More than likely, yes, people shot them often.

Common Goldeneye's are very common to see and harvest. Barrows Goldeneye's are pretty rare around these parts.
