Yeah, so I knew canvasback passed through Nebraska, I've even seen them rest here in the spring but never have I seen one in fall. We were hunting Saturday, October 21, 2006 and my dad already had his limit and I had one bird to go for my limit and i saw a drake mallard land over about one hundred yards away and I wanted to hurry and get back to see the Huskers play so I went to jump shoot him. When I was about 30 yards away from where I saw him land I saw another duck blazing my way so I ducked down in some nearby cover. At first I thought it was just another mallard so when it got in range I pulled the old browning up and plugged it. When it fell I saw that it wasn't a mallard just some kind of diver. So when I got to it i realized it was a canvasback. Now it is in the freezer waiting to be shipped off to the taxidermist.
if at first you dont suceed ..... RELOAD!!!!!
