It’s concerned with Altamonte Springs Locksmith helping organizations make advance provision Brandon Locksmith for duck needs that may arise in future.

I hunted Fisher Butte at Fern Ridge yesterday. I shot a limit of Ruddy ducks in 45 minutes. There are a ton of them out there right now. This was my first limit ever. 8 shots, 7 ducks.

A fun 2-man limit over the weekend with a good hunting buddy. Notice the hen banded GWT on the left. Second band of the season I've been able to be apart of, and it was my buddy's first duck band ever! Pretty awesome experience, and a little on the "rare" side if you ask me. All caught on the GoPro. How fun!? All in all a fairly good weekend shooting ducks, geese and crows [other than the fact that my choke/barrel blew up on me!]

Sorry the right side of the image got cut off.

Yeah, strange year for bands for myself and my hunting partner. A drake pintail and hen GWT, talk about unlikely odds.

Yes, my hunt with cwsmith was great. I got my first pintail ever and shot a perfect condition mature drake for my second pintail. Having it mounted. It has a cool and unique bill as well.

Jonesy, I banded ducks 2 years. Between the 2 years, Mallards were about 90 percent of what I banded, but I banded a fair number of pintails, greenwings, cinnamons, gadwalls, redheads, and wood ducks, as well as a couple shovelers, cans, wigeons, and even a couple ruddy ducks!

Thats great to hear! Several years ago I helped band ducks and geese during 3 consecutive summer as a volunteer at Summer Lake. Like you said, the majority was mallards and second was gadwalls. It was a great experience and I hope to do it again soon.

Here is a drake pintail I shot during Decemeber. By far the longest pin I've ever seen on a pintail. Should've mounted it, but it made pretty good jerky too :thumbsup:

Notice the length of the pin in the second picture (I should've measured it!):

Yes it produced. We got 12. Should have had our limit, but we missed some easy shots. If we were allowed more than 2 a piece, we probably could have shot 4 or 5 pintail a piece. They wouldn't stay away!
