I've gotten pretty much everything except for some of the sea ducks and big bull sprig and black duck.

Red Head and a Can. Sprigs are fairly common around our parts.

I've only shot mallards, woodies and BWT/GWT. And one shoveler :grooving: So I've still got many to go compared to most of you but my top would have to be a bull sprig and drake cinnamon teal. Only ducks other than a sea duck I'd put on the wall. Anyone ever see a cinnamon teal in wisconsin?

Cans are the dumbest ducks I have ever seen. A few years back the water levels were so high on the mississippi they were everywhere. I dont hunt the big river as i try to get as far back into a pot hole as possible. But they were still everywhere. We took three out of the first flock that came in as we were out picking them up running the motor they were still pouring in to the decoys. Since the limit was only one at the time we sat there the rest of the time watching cans land in our decoys.

The one duck I would like to take if i ever get the chance to hunt up in alaska would be a harlequin drake.

I've seen cinnamons in ND. As for my list the 2 would be a canvasback and bull sprig.
