60 days x 6 ducks per day = 360
60 days x 3 geese per day = 180
Being that you are in CO, you are not in the waterfowl capital of the world... I suppose you could hit that number if you're counting birds from your three buddies...even then, it's a high number. Unless you guide, I'm guessing BS... :wink:

Well one thing you got wrong is the length of the season in colorado, Nov- 21 until yesterday Feb -16 that is more then 60 days. and on top of that there is an early season and i hunted almost everyday. that is 105 days x 5 geese a day that is 525 geese.

duck season: teal for a 10 days in september then regular season opens early october and closed january 26 so that my friends is a lot more then 60 days of hunting in each season and with 6 ducks a day my numbers are not far fetched at all. i have pictures and friends to back it up.

I just find it corny, who cares? Have something to prove? That's all. Too many killers and not enough hunters.

More to it than numbers and bragging rights. You'll hopefully figure that out sooner than later.

I don't need an ego boost from avian death numbers. Season totals in a signature is queer with a capital Q. If anybody is getting all "huffy" i believe it's you :D

bandhunter20, it looks like you are off to a good start mounting ducks. Nice kill numbers also. When you post numbers like that it really brings out the Dudley Do Rights along with their jump on the new guy attitudes. It is good to see talented fellows like you on here so don't let them discourage you.
