    Went for an evening hunt in the field. Pretty slow but managed to shoot a few mallards and had this little guy come into the spread. Not normal for the location. Gonna have to put him on my wall. Haven't shot one this Nice in a long time.

    Finished up our ducks season with a limit of bills due to Gail winds and not able to get out to the other ducks. Managed to scratch a few ruddys and a mergig too. Should start freezing to chase some geese. Then Obregon in February.

    Very nice birds all around. I had to go back and re-read brazos' post, I thought he got those in Brownwood, then I got the joke...

    Men, you should be very happy, such a luck to get so many beautiful birds and to have such a good hunting.
    Adam, I will come over to get all the drake spoonies, I love them and
    Todd, all birds are fantastic but congratulations for your Euro wigeon and the hybrid, I wonder if it is a greenwing/gadwall ?

    The hybrid is a gadwall x shoveler. It came from a good friends aviary. He had 3 -2 year olds and He has one more for sale at $250.

    He will have 3 next year.

    Man, I see you guys killing those prime birds and such a nice variety and realize I wasted my youth hunting Ohio! Like so many others I have to pay and travel to get anything that nice. Then I see the pintails and it just blows my mind! I am just glad I get to mount some of those beauties every year for people who do get them. Love looking at all the pictures and all the great reference material too!

    Killed a few nicer Blue Wingers down on Okachobee.
