Some people get used to it. Grizz is not one.
Hard to say on the duck numbers swamp. They're all mixed in with the snows. Did see a bull sprig pintail today.

By that I assume that most of the pintails are not plumed out yet, which is unusual. We did not see many here that were plumed out with visible sprigs.

They're not funky looking anymore, but we rarely see full sprigs until later in the season.

hmmm...we normally see 5,6 and 7 inch sprigs on opening day here-but not this season.

I thought maybe you were plucking them and measuring from the quill to to 5"....

Or letting Jaysweet measure.

Those sprigs look to be 14-15" long.

I'm not sure what the cause is. My guess would be injuries from being shot. It's the norm to see at least ten in every field they've roosted in overnight.

That is what happens when you don't shoot 7/8 oz of BB's out of a full choke going 1900 FPS from a Mossberg 935...
