Not Your Everyday Ruddy

Postby The Waterfowler » Wed Aug 21, 2013 3:16 pm

I've seen two of these in the 50+ years I've waterfowl hunted. I killed the first one and this one was killed and sent to mount from Mississippi where I killed the one I did about 20 years ago.


Helping waterfowl make bad decisions since 1961.

That is really cool.It would seem that something like this would immediately catch the eye as out of the ordinary.I guess sometimes you just get lucky. Spending time in the field does not hurt either. Cant wait for the season to start.

It looks like summer plumage pigment mixed with winter plumage pigment. Whatever it is that's one cool looking butterball :thumbsup:

Beautiful blonde ruddy. It's a recessive gene that's very rare. Most believe it's most prominent in hens... VERY COOL! and excellent mount.
