Well I'm not a fan so far. Took him out this morning and had 0 wind. Saw groups but all 100 yards in the air. Hope I have better luck tomorrow Image

Is the pintail/ widgeon hybrid behind that Grey duck? Are you still seeing teal? We had a big morning before seven as well but very little wind made it sporadic after.

That's a GadPinWidg...they were pretty common the first couple weeks of the season, but became rare over the last few hunts.

Hopefully that wasn't the last of the species!
