Not sure if it was a teal or a coot, i was like 8 shooting a .410 on a levee and i shot it by myself but the water was too deep to go get it and i didnt have a dog. I didnt have determiniation for it at 8. Later that year, my dad and i went on a bayou and a pair of woodies met up with us. I shot the drake with his 12ga 870 and he grabbed the gun and shot the hen.

My first was a green wing drake came in to the decoys and landed before anyone saw him. We scared him off the water and shot him. I missed a ton of big ducks (gadwall, wigeon, pintails) before that little guy came in and of course I would hit the hardest target[emoji23]

Big old mallard drake, when I was 11 years old. Was sitting by a tree when they a while flock swimming up the creek and ended up blasting 2 drakes. From then on I've never touched deer hunting or anything but waterfowl for the most case.

Most of you guys have been shooting mallards as your first duck but mine was a Canvasback Drake. Age Twelve
It was an afternoon hunt and a pair of Cans swung around my blind.
I pulled up and shot the drake with a 20 over-under
Surprisingly the Hen swing back around and I shot her as well
One of my fondness duck hunting memories. :lol3:
