Good luck. Been at the same thing myself for 27 years. Got most of em. Still need a cinni and both goldeneyes. The hard part is shooting a stud and not blowing it to pieces. :lol3:

Lesser, it fits in the palm of my hand. I have only killed 1 greater in 7 years of hunting.

Have you shot most of them out here or somewhere else? I killed two golden eyes out there this year on the last island but they were both hens. :fingerhead:

I've shot everything but a Barrow's, Mottled, and a Euro Wigeon if that counts. I'd be broke if I put them all on the wall

I got a mottled getting done now. The spoonies are everywhere here too, like Robn said. Its hard to shoot a stud and not blow it to pieces. Ive shot plenty of all these ducks (except cans and goldies) but they either immature birds or blown to shreds.

Theres a few red breasted mergansers here and there but i have only shot one. I have never seen a ruddie in my life, and the whistlers are here all year but they seem to dissapear right before season opens every year
