The pintail andcanvasbacks are rare in the imediate area we were hunting. I thought you washington state guys shot all the fully plumed divers? I saw a DU episode on the columbia and they were getting all the great species
I just moved to WA. I got my Redhead and Can in central Cali last year...in fact...most of my mounts are Cali birds from December and Jan...so they're all in great color. I've got Widgeon, Spoonies, Woodies, Ruddies, Buffies, Pintail, and all 3 species of Teal at the taxi right now. If you'd like, I can take pics of what I've got back so far and PM you the pics. I'm actually excited about the damned spoony because I have yet to see one up here.
I have yet to shoot Scaup, Ringnecks, Gadwalls, Goldeneyes, Mergansers, or any sea ducks, and this year I will probably be taking geese in since I had never shot one and now have a Lesser Canadian in my freezer.
