I am new to duck hunting and have a few questions. I live in San Diego and hunt the salton sea near Mexico. There are tons of shovelers (divers, spoonies) and a few teal and scaup. I don't feel right shooting hens (in the ducks I can tell the difference) even though it is legal? I also don't like shooting spoonies because they taste like @#$%. This does not leave me much to shot at. issed: Either I have to change my ethics or go back to upland hunting. I really like to watch the ducks fall and my dog retrieve. Am I lost or just to darn much of a conservationist?
