Couldn't say. It was flying with 3 GWT, and we cleared the flock. Didn't know what it was till the dog got back with it.
Way to go!!!!!!
dumb ?............saw bill
P.S. Like the one of you & butterhead (dog). reminds me of a beagle thats hunting. If the tip of the tail is bloody, he's hunting hard.
saw bill is one of many names for the infamous merganzer.
there are about 10 arkansas (rice field) mallards in there.
And we shot em with pride.
we actually thought about shooting around Mr. Hollywood, and we had plenty of birds to do it, but I had two in the blind that had to be out by 8:00, so I opened spoonbill city for business at 7:30, and we smoked about a dozen of em to finish out 7-man limits. We opted to leave the flaps down on the blind, which meant no love from the mallards, but we had plenty of grey ducks and green wings to make up for it.
Cannon's bloodlust was satisfied.
Today was a little less pleasant. Left at 8:00 with only a handful of specks. I hate ice.
Smell that? Smells like sumthin died in here.
