    would love to gift one, but did not keep any from this season for mounting freezes were way to full.
    I'll keep you in mind next year

    Now see, thats just plain wrong. You should keep each and every Sprig in good plumage even if you need to get another freezer!!!!!!!That from a guy who has hunted 30 plus years and has yet to kill one!! ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

    looks like a great hunt! wish we could kill that many mallards here. we can only kill 1 hen/drake per day here. we had one hunt this year where our first 2 birds were drake pintail. we were having flocks of 500 buzz us and we'd have to pickout the 1 wigeon in the group for another hour until we got limits. here's a pick of some of them.

    EastonWest What we do in North Dakota, STAYS here.

    Here's a pic of a mid-fall hunt me and a couple of buddies went on. I ended up getting a mallard, wigeon, and two gadwalls while my buddies ended up with a couple teal, a wigeon,a shovelor, and a ringneck duck which he's getting mounted. As we were walking back to the pickup through a stubble field we jumped a covey of partridge and one of my friends was able to drop one of them. In north dakota we have a limit of five ducks (not including mergansers and coots). We can't shoot more than two wood ducks in a day and we can either shoot one hen mallard OR one canvasback OR one pintail per day. In addition to your limit of 5 ducks we can also get a limit of 5 mergansers and 15 coots.

    wow EastonWest, those restrictions are terrible! i dont know what i would do if it was like that
    in california this is what it is:

    -7 ducks per day
    - up to 2 hen mallards
    - 1 pintail either sex
    - 2 canvasbacks (as of this year)
    - 2 redheads
    - 3 scaup

    as for geese, that's different almost everywhere you go but its a bag limit up to 6 everywhere.

    easton, here in minnesota its about the same except we can shoot six ducks and we can also only get one suzy, but i was wondering how many people actually eat coot, i could shoot hundreds but i've tried them and they tasted like mud and were smaller than my littlest teal

    Wow, wildwings. I really need to get out more this fall. ;D

    I shoot a couple coots every year to use as coon bait on my trapline. coons can smell fresh coot meat a mile away and they come running with their tongues hanging on the ground. ;D I've never even tried to eat them because I figured that since they are always swimming with teal and shovelors that the'd probably taste the same as them. (like what they swim in). JMO. Thanks. EB

    depends on how you cook them (coots) are actually pretty good eating lol, yep i am a cajun, moved to south texas and they don't shoot them here so they are easy pickins, the ducks look like where you are Easton all day long all winter long here and man it doesnt take long to limit out here, we are the same 5- ducks and same limits as well, seems like we have so many of certain breeds they would allow us to shoot more of that breed but they don't
