I have been seeing a ton of divers coming out of Farmington Bay. I shot a Redhead yesterday but saw a few Cans and other divers. Is this the only area that has them thick right now or are their others? Has anyone been seeing them anywhere else?

Ogden is usually pretty productive for divers... there have been a quite a few pics on the Bullock forums with guys who go out and kill Redheads consistently. Its not too hard to tell where guys are at when they park with a pond or a parking lot in the background. Hint, Hint. 8) There have also been a few Cans brought out of that pond. Farmington has a few... I'd guess more of them out towards the lake. I'd guess that Bear River and Public Shooting Grounds hold a few too but I don't know that for sure. I'd put Ogden down as the place I saw most of the divers I had a shot at last year. Farmington was where I shot my first Canvasback. I've never hunted Bear River.

I have also seen golden eyes at Farmington Bay. The divers are in it is just a matter of finding them and getting them in. Sounds like we are all seeing them everywhere. I guess I will just have to keep trying because the only diver I have bagged this year is a Redhead. Good luck to all of you.

I will have to post some pics for my freind, but he has shot red heads and cans, since the opening morning. I have also gotten into lots of buffies, and blue bills and ring necks. And we never go up north! :lol: or do we?

I've seen tons of Buffies too this year... weird. Seems like they're everywhere.

I shot a Hen Scoter yesterday morning out to Howard Slough. Either a Surf or a White-Winged. :D

You will see a scoter every once in a while. I had a black scoter come into my decoys when I was thirteen. I hit it but it dove when it hit the water and I did not have my dog yet and ended up losing it in the reeds. If the bill has a bunch of brilliant colors on it then it is a surf, but if it has more of a plain bill then it is probably a white.
