its a widgeon gadwall hybrid but i dont think its crossed with an american widgeon,notice the redish area on the head .it more like a eurasion widgeon or european widgeon more of them are starting to show up in the states now days.one thing is for sure its a trophy
The ducks u take while hunting will only last a while,the memories u make while hunting will last a lifetime and possibly more. Hunt for the memories!

I would go with Wigeon x Gadwall for sure. I killed one this year and it looks almost identical. Definintely not a Brewers, those are Mallard x Gadwall.
