mine was a mallard drake.. I sky busted it. not knowing better I shot before my dad called it. I winged it and it sailed for about 300 yards. The dog took off and came back about 15 min later with it in her mouth. I
could never thank that dog enough for finding that duck. My dad scolded me about skybusting. Never done it since.
My first was a Green Wing teal. I didn't know that you could shoot all ducks, I thought you could only shoot just some species so I didn't shoot until they were almost by me. My dad didn't tell me to shoot so I was confused but it worked out....I could've got more but I waited to long :toofunny:
