Canvasback.......In NEBRASKA?

Postby marshmanjr » Sun Oct 22, 2006 10:37 pm

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!!!!!

Was in Ogallala deer hunting in late october, one of the ponds had about 10 redheads, which 7 or so were drakes. And one lonely mixed in Canvasback. could have jumped them and shot, but figured we would leave them so they start getting cozy in the pond for later :yes:
