Rarest duck/goose seen or killed in TN?

Postby d_hunter12 » Fri May 17, 2013 3:51 pm

I would like to know from different people what is the rarest duck or goose that you have killed or seen in the wild in the state?


My personal one would be a tie between seeing my father kill a red breasted goose in Dover in 1995 and me seeing a mandarin drake at Dunbar Cave in Clarksville around the same year.


A side note on the goose, when I retrieved the goose my father killed I noticed it had a wing clip on it with between 6-10 numbers but no way of calling or writing about it. Anyone ever seen anything like this??

That looks like a tree duck? There pretty common in Florida.

I believe it. I hear when they get somewhere they want they just stick around.

killed 2 surf scootersabout 4 years ago near soddy daisy TN. And I killed a mandrian duck last year in a swamp about 50 miles from any river. Ended up being the duck that finished my limit.

I know this thread is pretty old, but none of the threads in the TN forum are really live and kicking haha. Shot a couple White Wing Scoters with my hunting group last year in SE TN. Also had an acquaintance kill three Squaw last year as well.

Shot a fully plumed blue wing teal on the last weekend of the season a few years ago. Also shot some green wings that same day. I was gonna get the blue wing mounted with the green wing. Ended up that the dog ripped the blue wing's head off. I was not to happy.

We killed a hen scoter on Ky lake in 98 and had a brant hanging with geese in 2000 but we never got a shot at them.

Seen another scoter about 05 or so.
