Early season question

Postby TNhunter611 » Sun Aug 05, 2012 5:48 pm

So this will be my first early teal season here in CO, and i was wondering if it is teal/woodduck combined, like it is back in TN?

I've actually seen a woodduck pair in CO, they were in a suburban neighborhood at a pond in a park during the summer. Other then that, never seen one.

Ya'll must not get out much in the offseason. If you go to the platte or any other river with a wooded shoreline then you'll see wooducks. We killed 9 of them 2 years ago and 4 this past season. Compared to the Southeastern US though there are very few woodducks but they do breed and spend their summer here

I shot quite a few last season. Mostly on the river in early season. Saw some already this year two. Thought they were teal but came in close and definitely wood ducks. Teal season is tough cause all you can shot are teal, don't mistake anything else for teal.

Saw probably close to 100 of them around the pond I was dove hunting by. Lets hope they'll stick around

I saw quite a few last season and shot 2, both hens sadly.
Every day I try to be the person my dog thinks I am. If I have accomplished this when my time comes, I feel I will have had a pretty good life.
