Awesome. We get more chances at BBs than almost any other species.

Mike,
it happens but seems to be pretty rare. plenty of common and surf scoters in my AO, kind of in the middle of the coastal area.

So when I'm hunting alone, I make the lengthy drive to the ramp, launch the boat, run to a spot, put out 6-8 dozen decoys, mount the boat blind or go hide the boat and walk back. Then if I'm VERY lucky, a flock will decoy, I shoot one time, pick up the duck, pick up the decoys (a pain when alone), ride back to the ramp, pull the boat out and make the lengthy drive home?

Limit is not really an issue, usually I do all the above work and never pull the trigger - one duck is a win!

This is why I quit.......all that alone over 1 freaking duck......not worth it. I hunted solo a lot. Making the 4 hour drive to the coast weekly.....sleeping in my truck.....getting up at 3am all the time......y’all can have it.
